Talked to Stiemsma who said his foot is as bad as it's been. It acted up in Game 5 and wasn't right tonight. He said he'll be ready for Sat.about 14 hours ago via TweetDeckReplyRetweetFavorite@PflannsPaul FlanneryStiemsma looked bad last night. He missed several defensive rotations and failed to notch a point, assist, rebound or blocked shot in five minutes of game time. He clearly wasn’t right in the first half, which led Doc Rivers to spread Stiemsma’s second-half minutes among Kevin Garnett, who played 41 minutes a few days after celebrating his 36th birthday, and The Wildly Unproductive Ryan Hollins.With Avery Bradley out, Ray Allen in the starting lineup and Stiemsma banged up, the Celtics’ bench production has become “please hit an outside shot for the love of God, Pietrus” or “they flex a lot, which is cool, but can’t they put the damn ball in the basket???”Needless to say, the Cs could use Stiemsma’s feet to magically heal, Pietrus to start hitting from the pe...

End of Big Three era may be in sight

For years, the sentiment among fans and media has been that the end of the Big Three era in Boston is approaching fast, with supporters and detesters alike clamoring that the Celtics are too old and slow and behind the times to keep getting it done at basketball's highest level. Through it all, though -- and to the surprise of most -- the Celtics have persevered, with Paul Pierce...

Reliance on Garnett creates dilemma

The Boston Celtics have become even more reliant on Kevin Garnett in this postseason -- at least when they want to win -- and it's created a dilemma. On one hand, the club knows it needs to get him ample rest if he is to play at a high level. On the other hand, the C's can't afford to have him out of the game for too long. Doc Rivers has tried to manage the 36-year...

All You Need is Garnett and Rondo

  DATELINE: HUMOR! Kevin Garnett loves Boston fans. He stands in the middle of the court and like a maestro he waves his hands to orchestrate the sounds of the crowd. He is John Williams with his baton before the Boston Pops. Last season it was Shaquille O’Neal who went to the Pops and conducted the orchestra for several holiday tunes. Garnett does his conducting only at the Garden...

Avery Bradley's Absence Hinders Celtics as Sixers' Guards Attack Basket At Will

PHILADELPHIA -- The season may rest on Avery Bradley's shoulders. That is not merely a figure of speech, in this case. With Ray Allen and Rajon Rondo struggling to keep up with the Sixers' speedy cadre of guards on Wednesday, the Celtics' fate in the Eastern Conference semifinals may very well depend on just how seriously injured Bradley's ailing shoulders are. Bradley...

Greg Stiemsma Receiving All-Rookie Vote Latest Small Step in 'One Heck of a Ride'

PHILADELPHIA -- Buried down at the bottom of an NBA news release touting this year's top rookies, listed well below unanimous All-Rookie Team selection Kyrie Irving, was Greg Stiemsma's name. Stiemsma received one second-team vote among the 30 head coaches who cast ballots for the award. A single vote was nothing for the Celtics center to write home to Wisconsin about, but...

Ray Allen, Avery Bradley Find Rest Is No Help in Recovery From Injuries (Video)

PHILADELPHIA -- The Celtics would rather play than rest as long as the playoffs continue, but if they could find some time to rest while advancing, they would cherish it. Rest would help Paul Pierce, Kevin Garnett and several other players who have carried a heavy load for the Celtics, but two ailing members of the team would probably get no benefit, no matter how much time off they...

76ers Knock Off Celtics, Force Game 7 Saturday

It was ugly.  It was putrid.  It was boring.  It was gross.  It was terrible.  It was awful.  It was disgusting.  It was rancid.  It was stupid.  Those are the best ways to describe Game 6 between the Boston Celtics and the Philadelphia 76ers.  A cesspool of a game.  A Petri dish of funk.  An outbreak of pus-bursting sores.  It was played as well as...
