Rajon Rondo: Celtics in trouble when Kevin Garnett leaves floor

The Boston Celtics entered the season expected to contend with the Miami Heat (and possibly others) for the Eastern Conference title. They’re off to a 3-3 start, which isn’t bad, but certainly not impressive when you consider that two of the wins came against the Wizards. One of the main problems for the Celtics is their age. Kevin Garnett is 36 and Paul Pierce is 35, which...

Celtics' Garnett, Pierce do in Bucks late

MILWAUKEE - Sometimes a complex game like basketball can be so simple. A game that featured 17 lead changes and multiple momentum swings can be summed up pretty easily. "They made shots when it counted," Bucks guard Monta Ellis said. "It was a hard-fought game. They made more shots than we did and they came out with the (win)."Saturday'sgame was even at 74...

Your Morning Dump… KG wants Jeff Green to be more of an a-hole

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. And nobody seemed to relish this fiesty, bad-boy side of Green more than Kevin Garnett. “Jeff’s a really, really nice guy,” Garnett said. “Some nights, you just gotta be an asshole.” And the turning point...

Celtics Live Blog: Kevin Garnett, C’s Open Doors for Season’s Only Trip to Boston for Al Jefferson, Jazz

8 a.m. ET: Back above .500 and quietly winners of four of their last five games, the Celtics return home from their two-game road trip to give the Utah Jazz their only taste of TD Garden cooking this season. Al Jefferson, who has blossomed into one of the league’s best offensive big men, leads the up-and-down Jazz into Boston. After beginning the season with a win over the Mavericks...

Rondo-to-KG: The mirror-image alley oops that held off Chicago

The Celtics were cold in the 4th quarter.  If they weren’t dunking the ball, that ball wasn’t going through the hoop. Lucky for the Celtics, pulled off two plays that got them the high-percentage shots they needed at crucial times.  Actually… it was the same play… just run on opposite sides of the floor. Here’s the first one: The play really happens at the :13 mark with...

Boston Celtics Player Overview

The Celtics started out the new season with two straight losses, but they’ve bounced back and won four of their last five ahead of Wednesday’s home game against the Utah Jazz. Who have been the key contributors to the cause so far? You’ve got to start with Paul Pierce, who’s really taken over and become the nightly scoring threat we were accustomed to seeing. Pierce is averaging...

Games To Watch, Week Three (11/12-11/18)

Monday, November 12th: Bucks @ Sixers, 7:00 ET, NBALP: Jrue Holiday recently signed the four-year, $41 million extension that the Bucks elected not to offer Brandon Jennings.  Motivation? I expect Jennings’ intensity to rival that of Kevin Garnett.  The young man feels he has a point to prove this season, and I’m sure this is one of the games he’d circled on the calendar...
