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...
We’ve all heard billions of times about Kevin Garnett’s obscene plus-minus numbers. And the Boston Celtics’ trend of deteriorating with KG on the court is continuing this season.After last night’s loss, Rajon Rondo explained what happens whenever Garnett moves to the bench. (Hint: Hide yo’ kids, hide yo’ wife, close your eyes and take a shot of Jameson.) (Boston Herald...
MILWAUKEE, Wis. -- It's been a rough start for the Boston Celtics. They came to Milwaukee on Saturday night looking to recover from a tough loss at home the night before to Philadelphia, and also to avenge a season-opening blowout, also at home, to the Bucks. And while it may not have been pretty, the Celtics' 96-92 victory could go a long way towards helping a team with...
Sean Grande, aka the radio voice of the Boston Celtics, just tweeted this breaking news:
Here it is: Jason Terry and Brandon Bass move into the starting lineup for the Celtics tonight, replacing Courtney Lee and Jared Sullinger.

I like it. Shake things up a bit, and bring Jet and Bass’ offense back to the starting lineup for...
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...
The usual complaints about the refs. Interesting that they still have the Celtics are old thing going there. I guess they haven't looked at the Celtics roster lately. For some reason the gif and exchange at the end really cracked me up. Enjoy today's comments....
Boston is old, old old. We have young legs to run.
If we can get out and run like pretty...

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...
Kevin Garnett is still the heart and soul of the Boston Celtics defense
The Boston Celtics fell to 2-3 on the season after losing 106-100 to the Philadelphia 76ers in the Garden on Friday. The lost also dropped their home record to 1-2. The Celtics are struggling to find their chemistry on both sides of the ball, at an incredibly inconsistent rate. There are times when they are putting...
After losing to the 76ers 106-100, Doc Rivers spoke about how the Celtics must figure out a way to play without Kevin Garnett, the importance of Chris Wilcox and what he thinks about starting line-ups.
@iraheatbeat love Ray on offense but he`s too much of a liability on D, w/ him we will have top 5 O but top 5 worst D.

I saw the above tweet from a Heat fan and I had to chuckle. All the "Yay! We got Ray" chants may eventually dissolve "Oh no, we've got Ray!" Yes, Ray is a great shooter and he's going to hit...
