Celtics Welcome the Cavs

 First let me say the officials screwed the Pacers out of a win last night. NBA once again has their refs rear their ugly heads. 

Our Boston Celtics have welcomed the Cleveland Cavs to Boston by whooping them up and down the floor tonight. JB led the team with 32 beautiful points tonight. Followed by DWhite with 25 and his excellent three point shooting. JT had 18 and both Jrue and Pritchard had double figures. C's outclassed the Cavs on both ends of the floor. Luke Kornet was absolute huge in this victory. He had 10 rebounds and affected things on the defensive end. What I loved about tonight was the C's didn't force their offense. They let it flow and moved the ball well. They were always looking to make that extra pass. 

What can I say about DWhite, that young man has been a favorite of mine since the day he was traded here. His game continues to grow and blossom. His three point shot was simply spectacular tonight. His defense was stellar and he came up big for the C's. JB was the aggressor tonight, he wanted to show Spida and the Cavs who was boss and he did! The man doesn't get enough credit for how damn good he is! As for JT the pundits will crap on him, but he's a team player. He doesn't let his ego get in the way and he affected this game in many areas. His passing and rebounding were elite. He is going to come up big in this series I guarantee it! What can I say about Jrue, he was stout defensively and like a good whiskey he was smooth on offense. Pritchard brought the energy and his shot was right. Al did Al things and played solid D. Personally the C's should win this series in 4 maybe 5. I guess it all depends on if they get complacent. Great win tonight and bring on Thursday! 

Bleed Green! Celtic Pride! Banner 18!

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
