Time to Work

 The Celtics enter Cleveland all nodded up. They better not lose tonight or I may lose it. Go out there and work hard on defense please! Move the ball on offense and go get the W. 

1st Quarter 

C's must attack the cup tonight, nice to see JT hit his first shot. Jrue has gotten in the paint twice already which is great. JT with another three, maybe he's gonna go off tonight. JT to the cup for the lay in! He's going to need to keep this kind of effort and pace going all game. C's need to figure something out on D with Mobley. Not sure if it's the switches but Al needs to be on him. Great job by JT forcing him to travel, maybe that will work. C's offense seems slow at the get go. JB hits a big early three, followed up by a corner bomb from Sam I Am! The threes are falling early which should be a good sign. Last game they sucked from deep. I'm not sold on the C's defense right now, but I expect them to play much better as the game progresses. It would be nice if the C's can go on a run here to close out the first. Need to remind the Cavs who the better team is. Nice three by Jrue! C's lead after one. 

2nd Quarter 

Al gets the scoring going with a tip in gonna need more of that. Jrue Holiday grabbing big boards here tonight! Plays great D on LeVert and he loses the ball! The C's need to go on a run here, grab a bit of a lead. C's really need to clean up their D. Can Brown or Holiday guard him because the switches aren't working. Nothing the Cavs are running is complicated. C's need to dig deep on D and force them into difficult shots. Please play some freaking D... White finally gets on the board and scores at the line. Another huge shot from Jrue Holiday from deep! Great drive by JB on the break! Great block by Luke! C's need to keep pushing the pace! These refs suck tonight. I like what I see when the C's run. JT with a pure fade away jumper! That was absolute money! C's lead at the half. 

3rd Quarter 

C's must come back from halftime ready to beat this team into submission. If they continue to push the pace and defend at a high level they can do it. Hopefully the C's will cut down on the turnovers here in the second half. I hope the refs don't rear their ugly heads. JT opens up the third with an And One! DWhite for three! C's with some excellent ball movement as they push their lead! Let's Go! This looks more like the Celtics team I love. Last game I didn't know who that was... It would be nice if the C's continue to push this lead! DWhite for three again!! C's defense has been exceptional here in the third. The ball movement has been beautiful here at times. Joe takes the timeout as they allow a dumb run for the Cavs. You can't allow crap like that to happen after building a lead. Take the time to breath and regroup during this timeout. JB gets to the line and let's hope these free throws go down. C's must close this third with a strong run. JT to Luke for the JAM! JB big drive for the deuce. Great D by JB getting it to JT. Great block by Jrue and Luke! At least that's what I saw! C's timeout. Joe isn't happy with their offense right now and he's gonna let them know. JT with back to back huge baskets. The Jam and the Jordan fall away! JB for three! C's lead!

4th Quarter

Crap start to the quarter and Joe calls a timeout. C's need to weather the storm and come out punching. JT gets inside and scores. Another garbage call for the Cavs. JB to the rack! Pritchard for three! DWhite for three!!! Another garbage call as Mitchell flops. C's run in transition and score! C's are pushing the pace and that's what Joe wants! In the fourth so far I'm seeing things I like and things that make me want to throw my remote. C's up by fourteen and I need to see them close this game with an iron fist! When the C's run good things happen! Gotta close this one with hard core D and please rebound the damn ball. With that said a huge rebound from Jrue and the C's take the timeout. Gotta get a good play here. Good look for Al but he just can't hit a shot. JT with the filthy fall away! Nothing but net! 

Celtic Pride! Banner 18! Bleed Green!

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.
