C's bring the Thunder

 C's came out tonight and brought the Thunder. In a rainy and dreary day in Massachusetts, the C's were a ray of light. The C's decided to crush the Thunder and bring home the number one overall seed, which means the Finals run through Boston. A feat that looks huge, given how well the C's have played at home. There's a sense of pride in which the C's play with at home except for a few of their losses. If they can protect the parquet they will win Banner 18. 

JB had 23, JT with 24 and KP with 27. Imagine if we get that during every game in the playoffs?! This team will be unstoppable. KP dominated in the post tonight, a place where he should own come playoffs. What is special about him is he can do it from anywhere on the court. Personally I want him locked into mismatches down on the block. Both Jays once again showed that they are top studs in this league, yet are very unselfish in their games. Each of them could complain this season about not hitting their averages, but they know the greater goal. That which is securing Banner 18. 

Al had himself another very respectable game. He had 16 points off the bench this evening. He is going to be a huge asset off the bench in the playoffs. He has shown it all season. His game is an all around game. In tonight's game he was all over the floor and doing what was necessary. Both Jrue and Derrick were their normal selves on D. There's no back court that can deal with them on D. A combined 20 points, 8 rebounds and 10 assists are just scratching the surface of what we know they can do. Sam and Payton were yet again on point from deep and defensively. 

In tonight's game we saw some excellent ball movement and tough defense. What continues to impress me about this team is their unselfishness. When that ball is moving, watch out! Yes OKC was undermanned but they are a damn fine team. Well coached and hard working. The C's took their best shot and still beat them. On to Sacramento on Friday. 

Bleed Green! Celtic Pride! Protect the Parquet!

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

Did the Celtics Kevin McHale really have a 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.
