Found March 05, 2013 on Atlantic Twine:
Thanks to New England Sports Network’s Celtics writer Ben Watanabe, I chimed in with the Boston Celtics’ duo — Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett — to discuss their progression in the 2013 season as well as a preview of how this season and beyond may pan out. In the NBA, practice is the most important aspect for young guys, but for the older class players, like No. 34 and No. 5, these are the days to give the body some rest. The next five games will oppose a true test for the men in green. Boston (31-27) will clash against NBA’s elite and potential playoff contenders including at Philadelphia (23-35) on Tuesday, as well as at Indiana (38-22) on Wednesday. And then it’s back at the TD Garden for one game against the Atlanta Hawks (33-26), but the C’s won’t get too comfy on their territory because the team will be back on the road where they sit 10-18. This stretch of contests is one of many barriers for Doc Rivers and company will have to hurdle in the 2013 as The Truth reiterates below. ...

Paul Pierce sneaks into 76ers huddle

This is one of the better huddle-bombs you’re going to see.  Pierce doesn’t even try to sneak in…. he just walks right up brazenly, right past Spencer Hawes, who looks directly at him, and drapes his arm around two Sixers to listen in on the last few seconds. It’s so great, none of the Sixers even get pissed.  It’s like the end of an old Mentos commercial when everyone...

Celtkicks: Exclusive Anta KG colorways

Came across this picture of never before seen colorways of Anta’s “KG” line. The picture, posted by Shawn-an Anta marketing manager, features alternate colorways of Kevin Garnett’s signature shoe. We see all three versions-the KGI, II and III. In the top right, you’ll notice a black, gold & green shoe that very well could be KG’s St. Patrick’s Day shoe. There...

Avery Bradley's getting props from everyone for his defense (including refs)

ESPN Boston "[The referee] said, ‘I had one shoulder done and I was out six months and I still feel bad.’ I said, ‘That’s why you’re an official,’" Rivers recalled with a laugh. "I did see three bad calls after that, I said, ‘My gosh, I was just joking.'" Both Rivers and Kevin Garnett admitted that Bradley is likely not 100 perent this season...

Celtics hold off feisty 76ers

Paul Pierce had 18 points and 11 rebounds, and Avery Bradley scored 22 points to lead the Boston Celtics to a 109-101 win over the Philadelphia 76ers on Wednesday night. Kevin Garnett scored 18 points to help the Celtics continued their push up the Eastern Conference standings. The Celtics entered in seventh, but were no more than two games behind the next three teams ahead in the...

Boston Celtics 83 - Indiana Pacers 81 highlights and box score

The Boston Celtics came back from a 14 point deficit to defeat the Indiana Pacers on Wednesday night by a margin of 83 to 81. Jeff Green scored the game-winning layup with less than a second left on the clock, and Kevin Garnett notched a double-double with 18 points and 10 rebounds. Game highlights above, box score below. Boston Celtics 83, Indiana Pacers 81 - FINAL - March 6...

Video: Celtics/Pacers postgame interviews

Jeff Green, Kevin Garnett, and Doc Rivers discuss the Celtics game winning basket (Great play call by Doc!). Videos courtesy of Chris Forsberg.

Bradley leads C’s Sunday workout

As John wrote earlier today, Doc Rivers, Paul Pierce, Jet & KG were all absent from today’s workout. So who kept things organized while the vets & head coach were away? As Chris Forsberg tells us, it was none other than “Zero Tolerance”: Rajon Rondo is off rehabbing an ACL injury and the practice floor featured nearly as many newcomers (4) as guys who started the season...

Celtics lose lead, game

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) -- Kevin Garnett found Jeff Green all alone under the basket for a layup with 0.5 seconds remaining to finish off a fourth-quarter comeback from 14 points down, and the Boston Celtics beat the Indiana Pacers 83-81 on Wednesday night. Garnett led the Celtics with 18 points and 10 rebounds and dragged Boston back after they trailed most of the final three quarters...

Comments from the Other Side - Sixers 3/5

Good road win for the Celtics.  The Sixers have had it rough with injuries this season.  Poor Sixers fans want to root for a loss for more ping pong balls but they hate the Celtics so much that they are torn about it. Great game by Bradley.   I've highlighted a few favorites.  What are yours?  All the teams are tanking right now. Very hard to make progress in draft order...

Pics: LaLa Anthony Behind the Scenes Swimsuit Photoshoot

LaLa has come out and denied the rumor that Kevin Garnett told her husband Carmelo Anthony she tasted like Honey Nut Cheerios, but since she wasn’t at the game and neither Carmelo nor KG have denied we still contend that it is true. While it is very disrespectful to say that about another man’s wife, one must admit that LaLa is a very attractive lady, worthy of the title of...

Your Morning Dump… Where KG has gotten smarter

Every morning, we compile the links of the day and dump them here… highlighting the big storyline. Because there’s nothing quite as satisfying as a good morning dump. “We’ve given him more time off this year than we ever have for him,” Rivers said. “In the past, we couldn’t even brooch that subject with him. This year, he wants the days off. So, I think he’s gotten...

Gutsy win: Boston Celtics rally to beat Indiana Pacers 83-81

Let me be honest: This game was billed as a potential playoff preview but Indiana is a team I’d rather avoid. The Pacers are a very good team, probably the only real challenger to the Miami Heat in the Eastern Conference. A Celtics-Pacers series sounds like a more graceful version of last year’s grindy Celtics-76ers tilt, except this time the odds wouldn’t be in the Celtics...

Celtics-Sixers Live: Paul Pierce, Celts Eye Playoff Seeding in Trip to Philadelphia

3:26 p.m.: Nobody in Philly seems particularly optimistic about Bynum suiting up this season. Bob Ford of the Philadelphia Inquirer joined the chorus on Tuesday with a revealing column on the big man, who seems even farther from playing for the Sixers — ever — after saying last week that he would not play with pain. Sixers beat reporters found this little detail, uh, interesting...

Jeff Green Hits Game Winning Layup Off Well Executed Final Play

This is how you execute: Kevin Garnett delivers a backdoor pass to an open Jeff Green for the layup with .5 seconds left as the Boston Celtics get the 83-81 win over the Indiana Pacers.
