ECF Game 3

 So here we are game 3 of the ECF. C's will face a short handed Pacers team and I hope they don't have a let down. I see Rick has laid the foundation about the discrepancy in calls... Let's see if the NBA gives the game to the Pacers. The C's will be missing Luke Kornet tonight. 

1st Q

C's are in their traditional green uniforms and I love it! JB opens up the scoring with a lefty layup! I expect him to be very aggressive tonight. Good first defensive stand by the C's. Al opens up his night with a beautiful three. JT scores on his first attack of the rim, plus the And One! JT for three, good to see him coming out hot. JT with a sweet jumper over the rook. DWhite for three! Let's Go! DWhite BLOCKs Turner! That's the way you play D! The Pacers are hand checking and pushing off on the offensive end. C's must continue to treat this game as if they were down 0-2. Attack the rim and work hard on D. I need to see the C's locke em down to finish off this first quarter. JT with yet another pure three followed up by Al for three! Brown gets mauled and no call, the Pacers are in the bonus already. I knew the refs would make their mark after Rick complained. Absolutely disgusting! The way these refs dictate and "fix" things really annoys the crap out of me. C's should be up by double digits if not for these crap calls. Great job by Jrue posting up Nemhard. He can kill that kid in the post. Love the way Pritchard used his body to get inside and score. 

2nd Q

C's need to establish themselves on D here in the second. Refs continue to make calls in Pacers favor. I love seeing the C's run off a miss. DWhite gets to the line for a pair. C's have lost their way a bit and need to get it together. I believe the refs have their winner in mind and it's not our Celtics. These calls tonight have been absolutely terrible. JT hits a huge three after that garbage call. I'm just angry and disgusted by these calls tonight. I truly feel at this point and time this game is slanted in Indianas favor. Especially with these calls. C's at least finish on an ok run to the second. Still I'm absolutely disgusted. Need to man up in the third. 

3rd Q

Let's see if the refs continue to give Indiana points. Not a good start for the C's right now. It would be nice if they could make a run. But I'm not counting on it. Major let down right now. Honestly don't feel like watching the rest of this garbage. My hope is the C's comeback on Monday and get a fair shake. If they do I feel they win and can close it out at the Garden. Hopefully the C's will do something there's still time in this third. They have it down to thirteen right now. If they want a shot they must cut it in half by the end of the quarter. C's make it manageable for the fourth. Maybe just maybe they have a shot. 

4th Q

Defense will be the key to any chance of coming back in the fourth. C's have twelve blocks tonight... C's need a few breaks and they could get back into this one. Defense needs to be elite to finish off this game. On offense they need to get to the hoop here. As soon as I have any hope, the lead gets higher for Indy. C's continue to fight like dogs and have grabbed the lead with Jrues And One. I absolutely can't believe it. My stomach is in peril. Al, JT, Derrick, JB and Jrue all hitting big shots and making big defensive plays. That's what a great team does! Despite my feeling sick in the second and third this team has played with heart. This team has pulled off an incredible win!

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.
