On the Road Again


 C's are on the road again! Cue Willie Nelson! No Tatum or Al tonight, but that's not a problem. C's look to build their win streak vs the lowly Pistons. 

1Q 🏀

X Man out here earning Tommy points early in the game. Grabbing the C's an extra possession! Those second chance plays add up in the end. You have to love a guy who can do what he does. The C's are starting to find their offensive footing here. JB has this ability to be into his jumper before the defender can even set their feet. He plays at a different level, which is why he's a stud. C's need to find their flow, and JB gets inside and scores. Good to see Sam back in the game, off of missing the last two. KP rips the cord and nails a pure three, C's trail as we speak. Joe calls the timeout because he's upset with the C's right now. C's better be ready to play and bring that energy! JB with the steal and score! Luke Kornet is out here grabbing one handed rebounds, but misses a rare free throw. C's are missing some opportunities right now. Not very impressed by the C's defense so far. ☘️

2Q 🍀🍀

C's need to have a signature quarter right now! PP with an excellent drive and kick to Sam for three! PP hits a corner three to give the C's the lead. Tonight feels like an old Western shootout, defense optional... DWhites three point shot tonight is off. Need to see him get to the rack, and take that edge off. I'm surprised to see so many empty seats out here tonight. I get Detroit sucks, but the C's usually travel well. What a shot by DWhite, as he gets the contact and scores! Overall the C's are starting to get their groove on, but the Pistons aren't going away. C's open a five point lead, I would love to see I doubled by the half. I mean in all reality it better be! What a play call as JB is found wide open right behind the free throw line. Nails it with such beautiful  ease. Damn JB just put Wiseman in the mixer and finished with the tear drop! C's must have read my mind and this lead is growing! Love seeing Joe hitting the floor helping KP off the floor. Joe has clearly put his stamp on this team in a good way. His love for basketball is very evident. Fournier SUCKS, by the way, can't believe how bad he's become. C's in the blink of an eye have nearly built this lead to twenty. 🏀🏀

3Q 🏀🏀🏀

What a first half from Payton Pritchard, I've loved him since he was drafted. Glad that love is fruitful, his game is beautiful! I would to see him have a great second half to cap off his great start. Anyone watch Yale basketball today?! Kudos to John Poulakidas as he scored 28. In the post game interview he gave all the glory to the Lord. Personally I love that. What's with Jrue Holiday and "dead arm". I really hope he gets better and gets back out here. Going to need him in the playoffs. Everyone is contributing to the C's dominance of the Pistons in this third. Loving what I'm seeing from everyone. Slight change from the starting lineup with Tillman on the bench. Kudos to Joe for teaching him a lesson. With that said I love Till get him in there! JB puts Ivey in the wash cycle and nails a pure three! The sound of that swish was sweeter than most. Whenever JB sees a gap in the D, he's hits it like a flash of lighting! C's with a comfortable lead. ☘️☘️☘️

4Q 🍀🍀🍀🍀

Good thing Detroit has Michigan football as Champs. This basketball team is a dumpster fire. They won't smell the playoffs for a long time. C's look to close this one out. C's must show they can closeout this game. Last game vs the Bucks they almost gave up the lead. Keep the ball moving, and don't slow things down. The more you play with pace, the better things go. Man the C's get hosed on a lot of calls. White gets hacked and no call. DWhite in this fourth has been carrying the C's offense. C's win their eighth in a row!

Bleed Green! Celtic Pride!

Did the Celtics Kevin McHale really have a wingspan of 8-feet?

According to many sources, the Celtics Kevin McHale did indeed have an estimated wingspan of 8-feet. One of those sources is Wikipedia, as seen below: Kevin McHale American basketball player DescriptionKevin Edward McHale is an American retired basketball player who played his entire professional career for the Boston Celtics. He is a Basketball Hall of Fame inductee, and is regarded as one of the best power forwards of all time. He was named to the NBA's 50th Anniversary All-Time Team. Wikipedia Born: December 19, 1957 (age 61 years), Hibbing, MN Wingspan: 8′ 0″ Height: 6′ 10″ Spouse: Lynn McHale (m. 1982) NBA draft: 1980, Boston Celtics (Round: 1 / Pick: 3) Hall of fame induction: 1999 Number: 32 (Boston Celtics / Power forward, Center) Kevin was listed at 6'10" tall when he was drafted with the 3rd pick in the 1980 draft. Red Auerbach, in yet another heist, brought in both McHale and center Robert Parish (via trade) prior to the Celtics' 1980-81 Champion

In defense of Marcus Smart

 Let me make it clear first of all that I am totally against making a threat of any kind that even hints at harming, or certainly killing, another human being. Marcus Smart was wrong in doing so in the Celtics loss to the tanking Oklahoma City Thunder , and he deserved the one-game suspension. But to be honest, part of me loved that it occurred. . This type of thing can happen when a player gets to a point "beyond frustration" and is having a bad game. Marcus and his teammates have been under-performing generally - were in the process of losing to a pathetic-and-tanking Thunder team - and Smart was having a bad game . And he let loose verbally at the closest target - an NBA official. Wilt Chamberlain did a similar act versus referee, Earl Strom when Wilt was having his usual tortuous time at the free throw line (per Chicago Tribune's Sam Smith): ''He was in one of those 1-for-13s,'' recalls referee Earl Strom. ''Nothing was getting close. S
