Marcus put that stank on it here.
The Milwaukee Bucks (#1 overall seed in the NBA) lost last night and are on the elimination ropes as they trail the 8-seeded Heat 3-1.
Jimmy Buckets need to fix those chompers. Brother, you made 45 million bucks this season. I've got a smile direct club aligner set sitting in my room that my broke ass paid for but still haven't worn because they hurt, and subconsciously, I probably don't think I'm worthy of having a better smile. You can afford it!
Meanwhile, tonight the Boston Celtics host the Atlanta Hawks (who will be without one of their best players in Dejounte Murray) with a chance to end their opening series in five games.
The Jays are stars, but Robert Williams may be the most important player on this roster. They truly are a different (and dangerous) team when he's on the floor (and effective).
Usually, I'm not one to look ahead of an opponent, but this series is #over. The C's played like shit on Friday and still had a chance to pull it off. Sunday's game got a little too close for comfort at times, but the C's came out ready and stopped playing with their fucking food. If there's one criticism of this team, it's that they play to their competition and will come out flat way more often than you'd like to see.
Bring on the Sixers. That series might end up going 6, but I am not concerned with Philly. The Heat scare me more, and now there's a legit chance we'll have an Eastern Conference Finals rematch. Himmy Buckets exploded last night, and Giannis' back is in worse shape than mine (the pain I'm experiencing right now legit makes me scream when I get up #fun!). Despite their seed, the Heat have championship DNA.
I love this Celtics core and am yearning for a championship. A win tonight officially makes the C's a quarter of the way there. I'll say it for approximately the 9000th time on DOL, the Celtics last won it all when I was a sophomore in high school. I'm currently 31, so it's been a minute. That's their only title since 1986, so while Boston has experienced this bevy of 21st-century championships, it's not the TD Gardens tenants who have a bunch of rings. It'd be awesome to see both the Bruins and Celtics take it home this year, but admittedly I'm much more emotionally invested in the C's, and by much more, I mean I bleed green. As far as the Bruins are concerned, I hope they do it, but even at peak interest, I was like a step above casual.
The C's are 13-point favorites tonight, which does worry me a little, but I couldn't care less if they cover. All that matters in the playoffs is Ws, and the Celtics will secure one tonight at approximately 9:58 pm EST to send the Hawks home. I gotta give ATL some love before we end their season. Genuinely, thank you soooo much for beating the Heat in the play-in. I respect the Heat and know we could be in a first-round dogfight right now. I'd love to see unmasked Jaylen drop a 40-piece. Go C's! It's time to bleed green.
A win tonight also would make this the final Scal broadcast of the season. No matter your team, that's something everybody can root for.
While preparing to post this blog on my IG story, I just saw that today is Tatum's mom's birthday. CELTICS BY 30 MAYBE I WILL BET THE SPREAD AFTER ALL?????? (still probably not)
