We often wonder what opposing teams, their beat reporters and bloggers are saying about the Celtics. Here’s a look at some enemy chatter from Philadelphia.
“Kevin Garnett was spectacular, he was great,” Collins said after his team fell to 11-9 on the season. “Our guys fought. We cut it to eight and Garnett came in and bang, bang, bang, he sort of put it out of reach. I guarantee you Kevin Garnett didn’t have the freshest legs out there tonight but his mind was the sharpest and that is what we have to build. But you only do it by going through tough competition. I was proud of our guys but Boston teaches you what the next level is about.”
“He has experience and a lot of it,” Jrue Holiday said of the 36-year-old Garnett, who is now in his 18th NBA season. “He has experience with championships and the Finals and a million playoffs and he probably has played a million-and-a-half minutes so he has a body of experience. He knows what to do, he knows how to get to his spots and he knows on...

After much ado was made last night about Kevin Garnett not grabbing a single rebound in 23 minutes of play, he playfully went on a rant in front of reporters.
"You know what, I’m looking for the statistician around here. And when I find out what he looks like, we might have some problems," joked Garnett. "I had a rebound in the first quarter. That’s bull---...
Kevin Garnett took to his Weibo account (Chinese Twitter) to show off the latest colorway of the Anta KG3. In my opinion this is the best colorway to be released. What are your thought on the Navy/Silver KG3.
Following the Boston Celtics 92-79 win over the Philadelphia 76ers on Saturday, Kevin Garnett was upset that his rebound streak, that began in 1997, was snapped.When asked about the last time he didn’t get a rebound by a reporter following the game Garnett responded, “I’m looking for the statistician around here. When I find out what he looks like, we might have some problems...

After a 19 point, 0 rebound performance in a win over the Sixers, Kevin Garnett swore, literally, that there was something wrong with the person taking stats. Garnett has only had 4 games out of 1,274 in his career where he has been rebound-less. He swears he had one in the first quarter as he explicitly calls out the statistician, jokingly claiming it was “f****ing bulls...
How can you not love Kevin Garnett. Although I wouldn't be surprised if he actually reviewed the footage for that rebound he claims he had in the first quarter. Box score says otherwise.
Kevin Garnett doesn’t always need to grab rebounds for the Celtics to win. They beat the Sixers 92-79 even though their center didn’t snatch a single rebound. It was the first time since 1997 that happened. Paul Pierce contributed with nine assists and Jeff Green had 16 points off the bench.

The Boston Celtics continue to struggle in the middle of the Eastern Conference.
A recent series of missteps by temperamental point guard Rajon Rondo has done nothing to elevate their cause.
In their 95-94 overtime loss to Philadelphia on Friday, Rondo flubbed what should have been a game-winning scenario.

The Celtics bounced back after a heartbreaking one point loss in OT in Philly last night to dominate this game from start to finish. The Sixers never led in this game and the Celtics led by as many as 21 points. The Sixers made a run in the third quarter to cut the 20 point half time lead to 8, but the Celtics responded and went on a 7-0 run of their own to hold the Sixers off...
The Boston Celtics had it going on against the Sixers on Saturday night.
Boston shot 53 percent from the field and held Philadelphia to just 39 percent shooting on the Celtics way to a 92-79 victory. Kevin Garnett led all Celtics scorers with 19 points, while Jeff Green chipped in 16 more off the bench. The Sixers could not come up with an answer to the Celtics’ overall team effort...
The Boston Celtics spent their day off Monday spreading Holiday cheer to patients at the Boston Medical Center. Kevin Garnett and Rajon Rondo even got into some competitive games of connect 4:

Jeff Green’s suddenly Mr. Consistent Offense; Kevin Garnett had zero rebounds but still managed to be awesome by shooting 9-11 for 19 points in just 23 minutes (the last stat = the most awesome); Jared Sullinger had nine rebounds in 22 minutes; Rajon Rondo continues to fill up the stat sheet; and Boston’s defense has been revived from the dead ever since Rondo wrassled with Kris...
Twenty games into the 2012-13 season, it's pretty easy to look at the Celtics performance thus far as underwhelming. Their 11-9 record puts them in a tie for 6th in the East, their point differential (+0.7 per game) is the 14th best in the NBA, and the team has yielded these rather pedestrian numbers while being pretty damn healthy. After all the only player on the roster to...
