Game 5 NBA Finals

C's enter the TD Garden with an opportunity to clinch a title!

First Quarter πŸ€

Tip off is next! Jrue Holiday opens up the scoring! DWhite with a huge steal on the other end. Jrue again with a sweet inside shot! Jrue has six early points, I like where he's going tonight. Al for three!!! I like where this game is going so far. Defense wins championships!!! Blow the doors off these guys! DWhite gets to the line. KP is in the GAME! DWhite for three! KP doesn't look like himself at all right now. C's need to go on a run after this timeout. It was needed and Joe called it. C's are leaving some points out there. If they start clicking tonight could be a run away. Yet it's still tight right now. C's finish on a 9-0 run and we are up ten!

Second Quarter ☘️☘️

I look for the C's to push their lead here in the second. I need even more out of Tatum and Brown. They both finished strong in those last two minutes. Thanks to Jrue for controlling that first quarter. I need more Jrue and Derrick especially on the defensive end. It would be nice if KP can get it going. Back to back threes by Sam and JB. C's need a run to blow this open! Jrue for three!!! JT for the AND ONE! JT is getting down hill! I like his aggression and willingness to get to the cup. Keep it cooking JT! Keep this lead growing. C's take a timeout as Dallas goes on a mini run. I hope after this timeout they can get those points back. Need to finish this quarter strong, tighten up the D and keep attacking the cup. Come on guys, grab a huge lead going into the half. Then let it rip for the third and fourth quarters. C's a doing for every loose ball tonight! DWhite is bloodied and bruised. Brown and White with back to back threes!!! JT for three!!! C's are up at half after the Pritchard three!!!

Third Quarter πŸ€πŸ€πŸ€

C's must come out and knock these Mavs on their rumps! JT is having one of those nights and it needs to roll through this quarter and the next. The way the C's diving on the floor is straight heart, and shows Celtic Pride! Those have been Tommy Points from my perspective. JT with the JAM! DWhite for three!!! Al for three!!! C's need a monster run here to close these guys out. Run them off the court! As the lead grows the championship gets closer and closer. Don't take your foot off the gas pedal! JT has played a great game on all fronts tonight! The entire team has made plays when needed. Need to close the final five minutes out with force and strength. Dallas has cut this lead to eighteen... Timeout by Joe and I expect them to play incredible ball for the last four minutes and change. After that it's down to twelve minutes. 

Fourth Quarter πŸ€πŸ€πŸ€πŸ€

C's have a 19 point lead as we enter the fourth quarter. DWhite with the BLOCK!!! C's must continue to defend and run their offense. Come on guys tighten it up! Great D by KP forcing a garbage shot. JB to KP for the JAM! This game and this moment approaching has been a long time coming! DWhite for three!!! JT with the AND ONE! JT again!!! The countdown is at six minutes! JT AGAIN!!! Guess what JT AGAIN!!! It's down to four minutes and thirty nine seconds! Banner 18 is almost a reality! I believe it but I don't believe it! I have grown to love Coach Joe Mazzulla!!! Two thirty seven left!




  1. D White’s dive for a loose ball and face flattening by Lively followed by a couple of threes and a stupendous at the rim block epitomizes this team. Selfless, Defense led, and doing whatever it takes. I loved Zack Lowe’s piece on ESPN this am on dynasties and our chances to repeat…. Glad I could enjoy it with you virtually.

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. Red Auerbach, in yet another heist, brought in both McHale and center Robert Parish (via trade) prior to the Celtics' 1980-81 Champion
