    Celtics 1 Win Away from Finals!! BEAT THE HEAT!!!

    WOW WOW WOW. Celtics beat the Heat 93-80 in a true defensive battle. This is another game where the offense wasn't great but any game where you hold a team to 80 points, you should win. We saw Derrick White earn his contract with his 2nd straight brilliant performance silencing the haters. Tatum and JB combined for just 10 pts in the first half on 3-16 from the field BUT went on to score 37pts on 14-23 from the field in the second half and looked great. Tatum was 1ast shy of a triple double and JB went from 4TOs in the first to 0 in the second. They stepped up in a major way in that second half. Timelord is also proving to be invaluable for this team. He is the best 6'9" rim protector the NBA has ever seen and this entire Heat team looks terrified to drive to the paint when he is in there. With tonight's win, the Celtics take a 3-2 series lead heading back to Boston for Game 6 ready to wrap this series up and head to the NBA Finals!!!

    ECF Tied 2-2!! Celtics Blow Out Heat W/ No Smart

    The Celtics shot 39% from the field and just 23% from 3 in this one while giving up 23 points to Oladipo off the bench and managed to pull off a 102-82 WIN over the Heat to tie the series at 2-2. With those stat lines, how did the Celtics manage to pull this one out? DEFENSE. Timelord came back and made an enormous impact in this one. You have to credit Ime for the defense as well for having Timelord defend Jimmy Butler a lot giving him the flexibility to sag off and meet guys at the rim. It completely took the Heat out of rhythm and forced them to take outside shots and they were not up for the task. The Heat starters combined for just 18pts and we held 2 of their starters to 0pts. This is as good as it gets from a defensive standpoint. The game plan stands and the Celtics need to continue getting to the rim and getting to the FT line (32-38 tonight) while limiting turnovers (only 11 tonight after 24 last game) in order to steal another game on the road to go up 3-2.

    This one hurts. As bad as they played in the first quarter (and yes it was bad) the Celtics were in this game till the very end. We ended the game giving up 33pts off of 24 turnovers and Jayson Tatum scored just 10pts on 3-14 from the field and we were still only down 1 with 2:40 left. This was a game riddled by injuries on both sides. We saw Jimmy Butler leave the game and not return for the Heat but we also saw both Smart and Tatum leave the game and both return so looking towards game 4 could be interesting. There's not much to say about this game other than the fact that the turnovers need to be cleaned up.

    Who would've thought that having Smart and Horford back would help? What an unreal performance by both of those guys but Marcus Smart in particular. This was a quintessential Marcus Smart performance. He ended the game with 24pts 9reb 12ast 3stl and a block with only 1 turnover. Zero part of him looked like he was coming back from an injury which is great to see. We saw great games from both of the Jays as well but Grant also added 19pts while Pritchard added in 10. This was a great team effort to tie the series at 1-1 heading back to Boston. The offense tonight was spectacular highlighted by the 28 assists and 20-40 from the 3pt line. Obviously, this is not something we can expect every game this series BUT a lot of the 3pt attempts that we took tonight were wide open because guys were aggressive getting into the lane and kicking out to the open shooter so as long as guys continue hitting these open shots, the Celtics are looking real good moving forward.

    Celtics Outscored by 25 in 3rd. Down 1-0 in ECF

    Well the Celtics won 3 of the 4 quarters BUT we got outscored by 25 points in the 3rd quarter. You will never win a game where you get outscored by 25pts in a quarter. Take that one quarter out and this was a really solid game. Celtics had 42 points in the paint in the first half and were super aggressive getting to the rim which was great to see. Then the second half happened and we only had 6 points in the paint. Really tough loss without 2 starters but this game was certainly within reach. The big question mark after this game is, will we see Smart in Game 2; when will Horford be back; and will Timelord be fine after getting hurt in the 4th? Celtics look to right the ship Thursday night and even this series at 1-1.

    The Boston Celtics came out and struggled to hit shots in the first quarter but once that quarter ended, all struggles went out the window, The Celtics went on to outscore the Bucks by 34 points in the next 3 quarters and everything was working. The identity of this team all season long was defense and tonight, we made former Giannis WORK for every opportunity and held the Bucks to just 81 points!!! Offensively, we had some monster performances but none bigger than Grant Williams who led the team with 27pts on 7-18 from 3!!! He was absolutely phenomenal tonight and was a huge reason the Celtics set an NBA record with 22 made 3's in a Game 7. The Jays both played a great game and we got a double double from Marcus Smart as well. This was as impressive of a performance as we've seen in a while from this Celtics team. At the end of the day, taking 55 3's is too much BUT that is the type of offense the Bucks force you to play. One of the big differences in tonight's game was the fact that the 3's were all pretty wide open due to the Celtics being much more aggressive getting into the lane and dishing out from there. With this monster win, the Celtics move on the Eastern Conference Finals to face off against the Miami Heat! Game 1 is on Tuesday night s get ready Celtics Nation! Celtics in 6!

    Jayson Tatum goes NUCLEAR and scores 46pts in Game 6 beating the Bucks 108-95 to tie the series 3-3. With this huge win, we force a Game 7 in Boston! This is the exact reason the Celtics fought for that 2 seed! Honestly, there isn't much you can't say about Tatum after this game. We haven't really had that huge Tatum Takeover Game this series and this was for sure it. Every time the Bucks made a run, Tatum was there with a huge answer. He scored 11 straight pts for the Celtics in the 4th quarter and was as clutch as it gets. Marcus Smart was also spectacular tonight going for 21pts on 5-9 from 3 along with 5reb and 7ast. Grant got in foul trouble in this one so Smart was also tasked with defending Giannis for a large portion of tonight and he held his own. Overall, it is hard to find negatives in todays game. This is the first game this series where the Celtics truly played a great 4 quarters. Celtics look to advance to the ECF after Game 7 on Sunday at 3:30 EST!

    Man, I'm sick to my stomach after this loss. 3 quarters of great play outshined by a brutal 4th quarter. Celtics lose to the Bucks 110-107 because of a Bobby Portis putback. The last 30 seconds went the exact way you would've wanted. Tatum drives to the rack and gets to the line, hits both free throws and preserves the 2 for 1 opportunity and then you foul Giannis forcing him to the FT line. He misses one of them but then the Celtics failed to secure the rebound and Bobby Portis puts it back for the game winner. That one play is going to outshine all of the good things that happened tonight and that is a shame. Celtics are now forced to win Game 6 in Milwaukee on Friday the 13th and force a Game 7.

    Wow what more can you say about Al Horford! He led the Celtics to a massive 116-108 win against the Bucks in a must win game. This guy at 35 years old just had the best playoff game of his career with 30pts 8reb and 3ast on 11-14 from the field including a couple of massive baskets down the stretch. Tatum had the breakout game we needed contributing 30 also with a huge second half. This game was pretty ugly for the majority of it BUT the Celtics turned the heat up in the 4th and outscored the Bucks 43-28. We saw Ime make a huge adjustment that really paid off which was sitting Grant in the 4th and opting for a smaller lineup with Derrick White and White delivered. He had an excellent defensive performance including a charge drawn and a huge defensive stand on Holiday late in the game and also contributed on the offensive end which was great to see. The shots still weren't falling the way you want to see for 4 straight quarters but that 4th quarter shows you that it truly isn't over till the fat lady sings.

    The Celtics fall to the Bucks 103-101 and fall behind 2-1 in the series. This was a game they had no business even being in based on their shooting numbers. They shot just 37% from the field and 27% from 3. It was an abysmal shooting performance but somehow the Celtics were in this game till the very last second so how did we get there. Jaylen Brown and Al Horford turned the jets on and scored a combined 27pts in the 4th quarter and erased a 14 pt deficit to take the lead late in the fourth. Jaylen and Horford were sensational in this game and carried the offense most of the game. This was one of the worst offensive performances of the year for Jayson Tatum. Normally when Tatums's shot isn't falling, he can focus on facilitating but tonight he had nothing working. He shot 4-19 from the field and 0-6 from 3 while only having 3 assists.

    The Celtics came in and destroyed the Bucks 109-86 in a wire to wire win. If you break this down, you could have 3 different players of the game. Jaylen Brown was the clear player of the game in the first half where he scored 25pts on 9-10 shooting and was absolutely lights out. Then you have Tatum going nuclear in the 2nd half for 19pts in huge spots but the guy for that was lights out all night long was Grant Williams. Grant ended with 21pts 5reb 2ast and one of the best defensive games I have seen played against Giannis. He was a brick wall tonight and us being able to rely on Grant to play Giannis 1-on-1 instead of needing to double him allowed the Celtics to stay glued to their men and limited Giannis to only 7ast tonight compared to his 12 last game. That was the big adjustment Ime made on the defensive end. The big difference tonight on the offensive end was guys just hitting shots. We shot historically bad last game and I don't think anyone expected that type of performance to happen again but tonight was the complete opposite. We ended the night shooting 48% from the field and 47% from 3 compared to just 33% from the field last game and a lot of that was due to the fact that guys did not settle for shots. They consistently drove and dished and the guys who caught the ball stayed aggressive and tried to get back in the paint to find an even better shot. This was a masterclass game and needs to be the blueprint moving forward.

    This game was as ugly as we've seen from an offensive standpoint in a very long time. Defensively, I still think we played solid. We held the Bucks to just 101 points while giving up 27 points off of our 18 turnovers... That number is unacceptable but take away even half of those points and that is a respectable defensive performance. The offense today really struggled highlighted by the combined 10-31 shooting from the Jays which sort of carried over to the rest of the team. The Celtics shot an abysmal 33% from the field and took 50 3pt attempts. You combine the turnovers with horrible shooting and you will lose that game 10 out of 10 times against bad teams. Do that against the Bucks and you stand no chance. This is only game 1 and as bad as it hurts losing Home Court Advantage, nobody should've thought the Bucks would lay down. This will be a tough battle but as long as the Celtics can get a better performance from the Jays (and I certainly think they will) and clean up the turnovers a bit, I still like the Celtics chances in this series.

    CELTICS SWEEP BROOKLYN!!! BYE BYE KYRIE

    The Celtics complete the SWEEP and send Kyrie Irving and the Brooklyn Nets packing after a 116-112 win. This was another impressive win headlined in my eyes by the play of Marcus Smart. He did everything tonight. He led the team with 11 assists but also made a lot of the "Marcus Smart DPOY Type Plays" tonight that put this Celtics team in a great position. We saw a lot of great performances throughout the team and Grant was a big piece of that as well providing great defense on Durant and hitting 4-6 from deep. An underrated part of this victory is the fact that the Celtics needed to perform in the clutch without Jayson Tatum because he fouled out and they managed to pull it out. It's hard to keep this short because of how many great performances so we can leave it there. Everybody on the team contributed to this. We now look forward to Round 2 likely against the Bucks. Milwaukee will likely be without Khris Middleton for the first 4 games because of his injury and the now the Celtics are fully healthy.

    The Celtics came out with their sights on one thing and that is taking a 3-0 lead. This was a dominating 109-103 victory over Brooklyn and you love to see it. We finally saw Robert Williams get back on the court and play 16 minutes. His minutes were restricted but his game wasn't. He was sprinting down the court and jumping out of the gym again so that is a beautiful sight to see, While that might be the storyline of the game because we are looking forward, Jayson Tatum was the star of the game tonight, He added 39pts 6ast and 6stl tonight and was an absolute pest on the defensive end. He was obviously great but this is another game where we got really solid contributions from everyone including another impressive 4th quarter from JB and solid overall game from Pritchard off the bench. When the Celtics play like this, there isn't a team in the NBA that can take them out.

    Another Tale of Two Halves! The Celtics struggled in every sense of the word in that first half but managed to come out with a huge 114-107 Win to take a 2-0 Series Lead over Brooklyn. We went from giving up 65 points in the first half to allowing just 42 in the second half. The Defense truly clamped down and played exactly the way we know they are capable of. Offensively, the first half was stale. Very little ball and player movement and we were getting killed on the glass that limited our transition opportunities and gave the Nets extra chances. The second half was the exact opposite. The offense was buzzing and we got a lot of help from guys like Pritchard (10pts), Grant (17pts) and even Theis (15pts). Al Horford also looks like vintage Atlanta Hawks All Star Al Horford. He's playing at such a high level right now. While both of the Jays really struggled from the field through 3 quarters where they both had just 12 pts after the third, they both turned up in the 4th. Tatum added another 7pts in the 4th alongside his 10ast for the game but it was Jaylen Brown who really stepped up in a major way with 10pts in the 4th including a couple unbelievable defensive possessions. They say this team will only go as far as the Jays will take them and if they play the way they did in the 4th quarter, the sky is the limit! The Road To Banner 18 Continues!

    Wow Wow Wow!!! Celtics come up with a huge win 115-114 over the the Brooklyn Nets after Tatum hits the buzzer beater at the rim. This was as Game 7 feeling of a Game 1 I have ever witnessed. I don't care what people say about Smart but I thought he was unbelievable tonight. Defensively, he must've made 6 game winning type plays and he was also very efficient from the field. We also saw an Al Horford in his prime type game as he records a 20pt 15reb game at 35 years old... Those were the 2 stars of the game in my eyes BUT we also saw solid performances from the Jays as well. Tatum obviously hit the game winner at the end but her also added in 31pts and 8ast and was just making the right plays. He got downhill a lot and hit 10-12 from the line. Although JB didn't light up the stat sheet for the majority of the game with only 14pts after 3, he added in 9 points in the 4th quarter and was super active on the defensive end including an unreal transition block on KD that led to him getting a transition layup on the other end. Those 4 were fantastic today and deserve a lot of credit. This was not a perfect game by any means but the win is important. They need to clean up the fouls and the turnovers for the rest of the series but you love coming out with this win. --- Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/guy-deplacido/support

    The NBA Regular Season has officially come to an end and the Celtics ended up in 2nd place! It's hard to believe that this team was under .500 at some point in January and are now sitting in the 2 seed. The Celtics came out and faced a Grizzlies team that sat all of their starters and we absolutely destroyed them 139-110. This was a fun game to watch some of our bench guys in the 4th quarter. We saw really solid minutes from Malik Fitts, Pritchard and Kornet off the bench tonight. With that being said, now that playoffs are set to begin, I would not be shocked if Ime went back to his normal 8-9 man rotation consisting of Tatum, JB, Smart, Theis and Horford as your starters and then Grant, White and Pritchard off the bench while Timelord is out. When Timelord comes back, I still expect to see some Theis minutes. The Celtics will face the winner of the Cavaliers and Nets game on Tuesday night at 7:00 PM EST. I've said it before and I will say it again, any team in the NBA can beat any team on any given night so you can't completely count the Cavs out but my money would be on us facing the Nets in round 1. --- Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/guy-deplacido/support

    I have never been so happy after a loss and no I'm not talking solely about seeding in the playoffs. We went out and played the Bucks, who are revered by many as the best team in the Eastern Conference, without 3 starters and lost 127-121. This game was as impressive as it gets considering the team we rolled out there. Everybody stepped up. Marcus Smart may have had his best game of the season and JB wasn't far behind. Marcus had his season high 29pts and JB recorded his second career triple double highlighted by his 11ast. The Celtics ended the game with 30ast and looked so fluid out there. There are way more positives to take out of this game than negatives. As far as standings go, there is a very likely chance the Celtics are going to end up in the 3rd seed which is probably the most ideal matchup in the first round. IF the Celtics do end up in third, we will face off against the Bulls which means we would be avoiding the Nets and also Toronto which means we don't have to worry about vaccination status either. I was a big proponent of playing our game and getting the highest seed possible to get home court advantage in the 2nd round but falling to third isn't worst case scenario at all as far as matchups go. There is still a lot of potential seed changes over the next 4 days so make sure to keep an eye out! --- Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/guy-deplacido/support

    The Celtics rolled the Bulls 117-94 in another impressive win. They ended the night with 29 assists and shot 17-37 (45.9%) from 3 and were very impressive on that end of the ball. This was also a night where the Celtics defensive identity came back. The Celtics tallied 11 steals, 6 blocks and 18 points of turnovers which is great to see. Horford was the star of the game in my eyes. He ended the day with his 15th double double of the season tallying 17pts 10reb on a super efficient 7-7 from the field and 3-3 from 3. Daniel Theis also stepped up in a major way with 15pts and 6reb and really showed his pick and pop game. JB tallied his 10th straight game of 25+ points as well. Overall we got great contributions from everyone and the best part about it is that JB was the only starter that played more than 30 minutes. That should bode well for the Celtics who face off against the Bucks tomorrow night. I would still expect Al to sit tomorrow just because of how much his workload has increased in Timelord's absence. Tomorrow's game against the Bucks has a lot of playoff implications as they are just .5 GB us in the Eastern Conference so the winner of that game will likely grab that 2 seed. --- Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/guy-deplacido/support

    WOW what a game from the Cetics. The Celtics beat the Wizards 144-102 and this is a game that truly accentuates how great our offense is capable of being even despite Timelord being out. JB led the way with his 9th straight game over 25pts. He ended with 32pts, 7reb, and 5ast on just 17 shots and had everything going today. This was another incredibly impressive game as far as ball movement goes. We saw both Tatum and Smart with 7 assists, Al with 6 and JB with 5. Both of the Jays have stepped up their game in a major way as far as facilitating goes and it makes this team soo hard to beat. Defensively, we did a much better job of switching tonight and didn't drop into coverage nearly as much although it still happened at times. The real story of the night in my eyes though is the bench. Pritchard, White and Grant were the 3 primary bench players outside of garbage time and all 3 of them played at an exceptionally high level. Grant contributed 16pts on 4-5 from 3 so he broke out of his slump which is great. White contributed 17pts 5reb and 3ast on 3-3 from 3. Derrick White shot just 27% from 3 in his first 27 games as a Celtic but is shooting 43% from 3 in his last 5. Obviously it is a small sample size but it is great to see the shot falling. Pritchard also contributed 14pts on 4-7 from deep. All in all, the bench scored 67 points and was super active in this one. Nesmith, although he only played 8 garbage time minutes, did score 11pts on 3-4 from deep and was very impressive.

Offensively, I think we looked great tonight. Obviously the Jays added in 30+ each but it was the playmaking I was really impressed with. JB led the pack with 7 assists but we also saw Tatum with 6, Al with 6 and Smart with 5. This was a really great game offensively. While Timelord's numbers don't jump off the sheet most nights from an offensive standpoint, he provides so much as far as his pick and roll game and offensive rebounding goes. With him out, Theis and Horford stepped up in a major way. Al ended the night with 17pts 10reb and 6ast while Theis added in 10pts and 8reb (only 3 fouls). I'm not saying that Theis is anywhere near as good as Timelord but he brings you a lot of the intangibles that you get with Rob but with less athleticism. Defensively, we still saw a lot more drop coverage on the pick and rolls and that continued to be an issue tonight like it was against the Heat. Tyrese Halliburton scored 30pts in 26 minutes and was ripping apart our defense at times before he fouled out. That part is concerning to me but not something I am freaking out about quite yet. This game certainly wasn't perfect and should not have been a 5 point win BUT at the end of the day, a win is a win and every one of them counts! --- Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/guy-deplacido/support

The Celtics went on an incredible run because their defense was phenomenal and their ball movement followed suit. Tonight we saw the defense that has been switching everything take a step back. We obviously know the defense is going to be worse without Timelord but the part that scares me slightly is the way it changed. Tonight we saw the bigs drop in the pick and roll forcing guys to fight through screens more but it also led to a lot of easy mid range shots for the Heat as well. That is not a good sign for the defense and we all need to keep an eye on that next game. We also saw a regression on the offensive end. While we did have 27 assists on 35 makes, which is really good, we still saw a lot more iso ball but they just missed the shots. It was also struggle city beyond the arc with Grant, Tatum and Horford combining for 0-10.

Nesmith and Hauser both looked real solid tonight and got meaningful minutes. Games like this are huge confidence boosters for guys like this. With today's loss, the Celtics fall down to 4th place again but we are still tied with Philly and Milwaukee just 1GB Miami who we happen to play on Wednesday. I'm fully expecting both of the Jays to play in that game on Wednesday which could have huge playoff implications as far as standings go. This is not a "time to freak out" type of loss.

Overall, not a great game defensively but the offense was buzzing once again. Batman Grant Williams had a career high 20 points and also added in 10 rebounds for a beautiful double double. The story of this game in my eyes is the "bench guys" and I'm including Grant and White in that mix even though they got the start due to Smart and Timelord being out. Obviously we talked about Grants 20pts but White and Pritchard both chipped in 18 points and Theis added in 9pts and 8reb as well. Those 4 guys combined for 73 points! Obviously those numbers are skewed because we were down 2 starters but they are finding their groove on both sides of the ball at the perfect time.

Tonight is a great game that highlights all of the things we have done well this calendar year. We assisted on 30 of our 46 makes and Jayson Tatum has continued to play at an MVP-type level. I said it after last game too but Tatum is not going out taking a million shots but is going out and making the right plays over and over and that makes this team so much better. That seems to be contagious too because outside of Tatum, everyone else seems to be doing it as well. Tonight, Smart had 9 assists, White had 8 and JB had 5. EVERYBODY is contributing and that is a beautiful sight to see. This podcast is brought to you by our friends at Venture Greens Nutrition.

    Tatum MVP Chants. 54pts Leads C's to W over NETS!!!

    Jayson Tatum went God Mode today and played one of the best games of his career. He ended the night with 54pts and I don't think he took a bad shot all night. In games where players are going off, there tend to be a lot of heat checks and I don't think we saw any of that for Tatum. All night long, he made the right basketball play and it was super impressive to watch. This calendar year, we have seen Tatum step up and have watched his game evolve. There are certainly still iso plays here and there BUT we are seeing him using his body and getting to the rim for better shots and also making the right passes out of doubles. Second half Tatum and First Half Tatum don't even seem like the same player and I am here for it. The last several years have brought up several narratives including the fact that Jaylen and Jayson can't play together and they don't make anyone around them better. This calendar year has completely shot that narrative down as they have both really changed their game to suit the team. Both of them have become definitively better passers and that has created several open shot opportunities for teammates. We are also seeing the Jays playing off of each other which we have all been calling for for years. Things are clicking at the right time as the Celtics look to continue the climb up the Eastern Conference Standings. --- Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/guy-deplacido/support

    No JB tonight against the Grizzlies who have the third best record in the NBA and we saw a complete team performance. Despite allowing 18pts on 14 turnovers and giving up 17 offensive rebounds, the Celtics put together a pretty complete game. Through the first half, I would've given Smart the Player of the Game but then Al went off and then Tatum scored 21pts in the 4th quarter. Everybody contributed tonight and that is the part that makes you very confident in this team making a long postseason run. This version of Jayson Tatum was All-NBA worthy tonight. He did a great job of recognizing the double team early and making the right play out of it but he also attacked the rim more tonight than I can remember all season long. With tonight's win, the Celtics move above the Cavs into the 5th seed in the Eastern Conference just 2 games behind the 2 seed! With JB set to return this weekend, our game versus the Nets on Sunday should certainly be a fun one. --- Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/guy-deplacido/support

    Jaylen Brown went down early in this one with an ankle injury so we can start by saying "I hope that doesn't hold him out long." As soon as he left, the energy shifted on the court and the Hawks started going on a run. It stayed competitive until back to back possessions where we fouled on 3 pt shots which led to them ending the quarter on a 9-0 run fueled strictly by FTs. The Hawks continued stretching the lead to as much as 17 but ended the half up 14. When the third quarter started, everything changed. The Celtics outscored the Hawks 31-13 in the third and 25-20 in the fourth. Their defense stepped up in a major way but we got massive contributions off the bench including 18pts from both Derrick White, who had a monster third quarter, and Grant Williams, who hit back to back 3s in the fourth clinching this victory. Jayson Tatum was the star tonight though doing a little bit of everything highlighted by his 33pts and 7ast.

    This was truly a game decided by the 3 and that is typically not a good thing for the Celtics. The Celtics fell 128-107 to the Pacers and the big difference came from beyond the arc. The Celtics shot 12-43 (27.9%) while the Pacers, who have been a 33% 3pt shooting team this season, shot 17-33 (51.5%). The Celtics have hung their hat on the defensive end all season long and tonight was not their night. Coming off the back to back, Ime decided to rest Al (which I'm not complaining about) but that means other guys need to step up and that didn't really happen on the defensive end. This turned into a shoot out early and instead of clamping down defensively, we let the Pacers fly past us while our defense collapsed in to stop the drive and they kicked out for open 3 after open 3 and that continued for 4 straight quarters ultimately putting this one away. The Celtics head back to Boston for a game on Tuesday against the Hawks. A bounceback win would be huge for this group as we hope to climb the standings a bit in a very condensed Eastern Conference.

    Pritchard To The Rescue! Big Celtics Win

    Let me start by saying this was an ugly game through 3 quarters. The officiating was horrible for both teams. The two reasons that Celtics have been playing so well lately is because they have placed a huge emphasis on defense and pushing the pace and in a game where there are 41 fouls in 48 minutes, pushing the pace gets extremely difficult. The highlight of today's game by far was the excellent play of Payton Pritchard. He ended the game with 19pts and 6ast on a very efficient shooting night and he did it in huge spots where the Celtics really needed scoring. Another bright spot of today was the ball movement. The Celtics ended the game with 31 assists on 42 makes which is extremely impressive. Like I said to start, this was still an ugly game for the most part BUT they came out with a much needed win and now find themselves just 4 games behind 1st, just .5 games behind the Cavs for 5th and just 1 game back from the Bucks for 4th! --- Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/guy-deplacido/support

This team is absolutely rolling. Yes, I know the Nets team that we beat tonight 129-106 was very depleted but the Celtics beat them handily as we've done so far in 2022. The emphasis needs to stay on defense being the priority and pushing the pace as that is what has helped us win 17 of our last 22 games. We saw an excellent performance tonight from everyone that played top to bottom. Every starter was great, we got great contributions from Grant and White but we also saw Pritchard come in for extended minutes and play well. Even the guys that played in garbage time looked real solid today.

    Give credit where credit is due. The Pistons played a great game today. The Celtics were missing both Smart and Timelord and it showed. With two of our best defensive players out, it makes sense that our defense took a step back. Without Timelord and his 10 rebounds per game it makes sense that the Pistons killed us on the offensive glass. With Smart out and Tatum given more ballhandling duties, it makes sense that he had 7 turnovers. It's never fun losing to a bad Pistons team and even with those two out, we still had more talent on the court than they did but they executed their gameplan perfectly and we didn't. Instead of going into the All Star Break on a 10 game win streak, we are going in with a loss but let's look where we are at. With 22 games left, the Celtics are just 4.5 games out of first place and just 2 games back of 4th place which would give the Celtics home court advantage. If you went back to December and you said that, very few people would believe it. I think this is where everyone thought we would be before the season started but I don't think anyone expected a 9 game win streak to be the reason for it. With that being said, we are still very much in this and are poised to make a big run in the remaining 22 games. --- Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/guy-deplacido/support

    Don't you love a good "Garbage Time Quarter"?! The Celtics absolutely destroyed Philly in this one leading by as much as 51 at one point. This Celtics team that we have seen in 2022 is unlike anything we've seen in a long time. The defensive intensity is unmatched across the league and they are using that defense to fuel their offense. The only negative from today's game is that Smart went down with an ankle sprain but with only one game before the All Star Break, the timing couldn't be better for an injury. We saw a very complete game through and through including some great games from our bench as well. I thought Nesmith was fantastic tonight and Hauser also looked great from deep. The Celtics as a whole was incredible from beyond the arc setting a franchise high 25 made 3pt shots on 55% shooting but it was the defense that really stood out. This is the 9th time the Celtics have held an opponent under 90 points which leads the NBA.

    All the Celtics "fans" that kept saying "I will say they turned a corner when they actually play a good team" can finally start rooting for the team again. This was an impressive win against a good Denver team and one of the best players in the NBA in Jokic. After giving up 60 points in the first half, the Celtics defense turned it up a notch in the second holding them to just 42. The story of the night is Derrick White. After being traded just 24 hours ago, he flew into Boston, cleared his physical and suited up tonight. Not only did he suit up but he played a major role and played the final 17 minutes of the game and came up huge with 15pts 6reb 2ast (should have been 4. He had 2 absolute dimes to Grant but he missed the layups) and he was efficient from the field. To come in to a new team and play a very tough switch heavy defense in Boston without a single practice and look fantastic while leading the team with a +10 is as impressive as it gets. Outside of JB who really struggled shooting today, we got really good contributions from our starting lineup all the way through. A couple months ago, this is the type of game that the Celtics fold in and they came out and battled tonight for their 7th straight win putting themselves 2 games above the Nets and just .5 games behind the Raptors for the 6th seed.

    TRADE DEADLINE RECAP! THEIS IS BACK

    Okay so here's how I look at this trade deadline. We got rid of Bol Bol and PJ Dozier who likely would never have played a game for us. We got rid of Bruno who never played and we got rid of Freedom who was a massive defensive liability and has already been waived. We basically swapped second round picks with the Magic which is most likely a win because they're worse than us lol. Now it's time to break down the meat of the trade. We traded Josh Richardson, Dennis Schroder and a 2022 1st round pick for Derrick White and Daniel Theis. What are the two things that we have been needing all year long? A pass first PG and depth at the Center position because Freedom was bad. That is exactly what we got in return. I HATE getting rid of Josh Richardson today but overall, I love our return. Although some people disagree with this, Schroder being traded makes sense because we know there wasn't a path to keeping him so you might as well bring something of value back for him and that is exactly what Brad did. Daniel Theis now slots into your backup big role and gives you great depth at that position while also being able to stretch the floor better than both Rob and Al are doing currently. The addition of Derrick White is great. Similar to Smart, he is a pitbull defensively and is a combo guard meaning he can slot in at the PG or SG spot because of being 6'4". He is a great facilitator and is also hitting corner threes at a 48% rate this season which is excellent. Another interesting part to this Trade Deadline is the fact that the Celtics opened up 5 different roster spots. I fully expect Sam Hauser to take on of those spots who has averaged 21PPG in Maine on 48% from the field and 42% from 3. That still leaves 4 open roster spots so you can expect Brad to stay busy during the whole buyout market. DeAndre Bembry was just waived by the Nets who would be another great target for the Celtics. --- Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/guy-deplacido/support

    The Celtics continue the blowout train with a big 116-83 win over the lowly Magic. This was a very ugly game for the majority of it as the Celtics finished the game once again shooting under 30% with a ton of attempts. With that being said the Celtics turned things up mid way through the third and really picked up the defensive intensity as well as ball and player movement. Dennis was a major part of this win contributing 22 points and really picking up the scoring when they were struggling. The two Jays combined to shoot 3-17 from 3 but contributed in other ways. Tatum contributed with 7ast and Brown led the team with 26pts. There are still some glaring issues with this team and it certainly shows in their 3pt% but it is good to see them continue their winning. This game marks 5 straight wins and 12 of our last 16.
