The Celtics started aggressively, but faded down the stretch of the second quarter to lull us all into believing we were in for another frustrating dog fight. But they took control of the game in the second half to push their lead up as high as 17 before settling for a 104-94 win.  The starters, led by Kevin Garnett, demolished the Timberwolves… scoring 82 of the Celtics 104 points. The Green:  Kevin Garnett lit up his old team for 18 points, 10 rebounds and 4 assists.  He just loooooooves playing against his old team. Gotta give some love to Brandon Bass in this spot too.  After a pretty non-existent first half, he erupted to score 8 points in just over 3 minutes to start the third, and finished with 12 points and 8 rebounds. Also props to Jared Sullinger who did some serious work in 18 minutes of play.  He got to the line 6 times, hit 5, got 7 boards, 2 blocks, and drew another charge.  I love this kid. And…. are you ready for this??? The Celtics out-rebounded the Timberwolves 45-...

Wolves Tuesday: 3-pointers not falling

MINNEAPOLIS It's impossible not to have faith in Kevin Love, but in his first weeks back this season, I've found myself holding my breath during every 3-point shot he attempts. It hasn't been pretty; he's shooting just 19.4 percent from long range. Of course Love is still getting his shooting back after five weeks out, and with the strides he made from long-range...
