Celtics Top Clippers in OT, 139-134.

Wow, awesome game. And I only saw the OT live.

Down 6 in the OT, they came back and played tough basketball, thanks to some big shots by Evan Turner. He hit a nice hesitation jumper in the paint, got a nice And-1, and another jumper in the lane.

A big three by Sullinger kinda started this run. It was a ballsy play because Isaiah Thomas had what looked like an easy 2 but he kicked it out to the open Sullinger for the 3.

Check out the stat line for Thomas.

Really nice win. Nice bounce back after that disappointing loss to the Bucks.

This team is fun to watch. They might surprise some people out there, but Boston knows what this team can do.

BTW, as Pierce walked off the TD Garden court, for possibly the last time, he had a nice smile on his face. That in itself is like a little bonus win. Always love Pierce.

The Field At SuperBowl 50 Was So Bad It Caused Video Game Glitches

What does that title mean? Well, you know in videogames when your character moves even though they aren’t walking or taking any steps? That happened to Michael Oher in the SuperBowl.

People would complain about this in Madden, but now Madden can say it replicates real life.

 

 

Celtics Rally Back, Fall Short. Bruins Get Smoked By Kings.

So, Boston had both teams in action tonight.

The Bruins were home at the Garden (where they are actually worse than on the road). Even wearing the road white uniforms (the Kings wore yellow jersey alternates), the Bruins didn’t have any luck. They got blown out 9-2. Rask let in 5 while his replacement Gustavsson let another 4. Jonathan Quick only allowed 2 all night. This was one of the most lopsided losses in recent memory for the B’s.

Once again, a returning former Bruin got the better of their old team. Milan Lucic tallied a goal of his own early in the third.

So, that was the Bruins night. It was over pretty compared to the Celtics, who despite having a double digit lead early, and being down by 19 late, rallied back to get it even at 111-111 with 1 second to play.

The reason they tied it up was a nice play idea slash boneheaded foul by Milwaukee. Down 2 with 1 second left, the Celtics tried the inbound lob to the basket. Kelly Olynyk was pushed and since the Bucks were over the limit, Olynyk got 2 shots and hit them both, tying the game.

With the same 1 second left, Avery Bradley, the hero against the Cavs, fouled Kris Middleton. Realy should have just let him take the shot. Let him beat you on the jumper than at the line.

He hit the first shot and purposely missed the second to use up most of the 1 second left. Jae Crowder got a full court heave off but it was well short.

Dissapointing loss for the Celtics, who were on fire as of late. Another 100+ game for the C’s, as they continue to be the highest scoring team per game in the East, and still 3rd in the East.

Bruins, 6-3-1 now in the last 10, are currently 7th in the East.

Seven Takeaways From SuperBowl 50

1. Denver’s Defense Is for Real

I guess it’s a little weird to wait to the very last game of the season to say that. They were ranked Number 1. They did beat the Patriots. But the idea of Cam Newton and this Panthers offense that went off on Arizona, well, we thought they would give the Denver D a tougher time.

Not what happened.

I thought Newton’s legs would get him away from all those rushing Broncos, but that didn’t work.

Denver got 7 sacks and hit Cam a bunch of times. He missed open passes early. Was it nerves? I don’t know. But Denver’s defense outplayed the offense of Carolina.

They were General Zod with Kryptonite last night.

DraftKings Picks – Week 2 – How Will I Do This Week?!

week 2 draft kings 2015draft kings week 2 prices

Ok, here we are. Week 2 of the NFL season. And if you’re like me, you’re playing DraftKings.

You might also be like me and have won $0 so far. But I’m hoping that changes.

These are my picks for Week 2 and a little explanation. I may have been a little too over reactive from Week 1 but oh well.

Red Sox Offense Explodes Vs Tigers, Take Two of Three

I can’t say I saw that one coming. The bats came alive for the Sox at Fenway last night, getting 20 hits and 11 runs, 7 of those runs driven in by Big Papi himself, which was a career high. Kinda surprising for him, but he did have 6 RBI games six times before. (Side note, on July 24th, it was Nomar’s birthday, and 13 years ago on that date, he hit 3 home runs, one was a grandslam, and had 8 RBI. So while Ortiz had a career night last night, Nomar’s birthday bash was a tad better. Anyway, back to the current guys..)

BATMAN v SUPERMAN – Comic Con Trailer Breakdown and Thoughts

Batman v Superman Trailer Screenshots

Yeah, buddy! This looks good man.

A nice 3 and a half minute trailer to give you a look at the next Superman movie (remember, this is still a Man of Steel sequel, it just also happens to have Batman’s name in the title and also Wonder Woman).

First impressions for me?

Do I Have a Post on the Blue/Black White/Gold Dress. I Do Now! #COLORGATE

This thing has been BLOWING UP the internet. It’s everywhere, like EVERYWHERE. I’m like, “Are you kidding me? People are going nuts over the color of a dress?”. But the more I dig, the deeper I get sucked into this thing.

Instantly I saw black and blue. The black is sort of washed out with a brown tinge but I’m saying that’s from the lighting. And the blue is a very light, North Carolina blue color.

I also have brown eyes. What does that mean related to this? Something, nothing?

But then I see the majority of people see white and gold. WTF? Who’s wrong? My eyesight is pretty good. I see black and blue. I don’t get how you could see white and gold. My brain and eyes don’t see it.

For those of you that will read this, vote in the poll here.

This thing is like Deflategate. I’m calling it ColorGate. (I hate using -gate at the end of these things cause it makes no sense. Watergate was a hotel name, not a scandal or controversy about Water as Scot van Pelt said).

#Colorgate

The reason it is like Defelategate is we have people coming out of the woodwork with their scientific reasoning behind everything when it’s about a frickin’ dress color.

 

We do. We all do (secretly).

Hey Seahawks, You Got Served! Butler INT Seals Victory For Patriots

Patriots' Malcolm Butler says he had vision he would make big play

Sweet fancy moses. If you weren’t dead, revived, died again, and ascended to heaven with Katy Perry, and then came back to life in the last minute of that game…..i lost my train of thought, but what an ending!

It went from the Patriots losing another Super Bowl thanks to a one and a million circus catch to them sealing the victory thanks to a defensive play and a boneheaded call by the Seahawks.

Unreal. I’m speechless.

I’m without speech.

Brady finally gets his fourth Super Bowl, 3rd SB MVP, and this one feels GREAT!!

The early story was Chris Matthews, the undrafted WR on Seattle who had frickin’ ZERO catches all year and somehow burns the D for 4, over 100 yards and a TD.

But the story turned to another undrafted player, Malcom Butler, the rookie who was victim to one of the craziest and luckiest catches in Super Bowl history, to the guy who saved the day. Tom Brady needs to give that truck to him.

And Seahawks, U Mad Bro? What’s up with the fighting after the kneel down? Can’t take losing like a man?

A few notes from the game,

-This is the 10th team out of the last 11 winners to wear white (Green Bay the exception).

-Gostowski didn’t have a FG, which is funny considering all the other wins were by 3 pts, and 2 by Vinatieri at the final seconds.

-Madden correctly predicted a 28-24 Patriots win, down to the 10 point comeback sealed by a Julian Edelman TD.

-Rob Ninkovich’s birthday was today. Best present ever.

-What might get lost in this Super Bowl is the Lenny Kravitz appearance at the half time show. What happened? I was ready for “Are You Gonna Go My Way” and then instead he sings like 5 lines from a Katy Perry song and was gone. Missy Elliot was a surprise and had more time than him.

I also would LOVE to see the NBC crew’s reaction to the final minute. You have Dungy and Harbaugh, two guys how probably can’t stand Belichick, and Rodney Harrison, one of Bill’s favorite guys. Rodney had to have had a huge smile if he wasn’t outright cheering. He knows what it’s like to seal a┬áSuper Bowl with an INT.
