ECF Game 1


At the half the C's and Pacers are tied, C's have way too many turnovers. Their defense wasn't up to par in that second quarter. It would be nice to see the C's move the ball as they did earlier in the game. Lock in on D in the third and good things will come. If the C's do that I'm confident they will win. 

3rd Quarter 

Al plays great D and blocks Siakims shot. That's the kind of D that needs to be played. Al is the first to score for the C's with a three. JB uses the euro step and scores. Off the steal JT scores and should have gotten the and one. These Celtics really need to lock in on D. Or it's not gonna end the way we want. Jrue with a big three early on. JT with a nice fall away. I like JTs willingness to get in the post and back guys up. He should be able to do this at will this entire series. I also feel Jrue has that same ability vs these Pacer guards. JBs D leads to a steal and he's going to the line. He may not have made the all defensive team but hes beast. JT with a big three!!! C's force a turnover on the other end! Great block by JB on Nesmith and saves it off Nesmiths body! Love that HUSTLE! JT to the cup and he's getting the and one! C's have finally applied themselves on D and we are making gains with our lead! Jrue from the corner BANG! C's take a timeout as they get a little lax out there. Awful finish to the third. C's with a lead...

4th Quarter 

C's built a lead and let it slip away. I hope they can come thru in this quarter. We need some Derrick White magic here in the fourth. JT with a big fall away jumper. C's with great D and force a 24 second clock violation! JT off his miss and scores inside! Jrue with an incredible post move and scores. Excellent drive by Jrue! It's going to take a huge defensive effort to bring this one home. I'm not seeing that work being put in. Please for the love of basketball make a freaking play. Jrue off his own miss and scores! Great D by JT! Which forces the turnover as DWhite grabs it. DWhite another HUGE defensive play! C's find themselves trailing and I want to puke. They never do anything easy. JB with the biggest shot of his life to tie this game up. JT with his biggest defensive stop of his life. 


C's make all the big plays at the end of the game and win a huge game 1! JT JB Al DW and Jrue all made HUGE PLAYS! This team puts us thru so many emotions. 

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

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.
