Celtics 105, Bobcats 88
In the second half of Saturday night’s tilt with the Bobcats, the Celtics (36-29) exacted a measure of revenge after their 26-point loss in Charlotte earlier this week. Jeff Green didn’t mince words after the game when he told reporters that the C’s wanted to send a message by thoroughly dominating a weaker Bobcats team.
As they shot 66 percent from the field and nailed all four three-point attempts in the third quarter, the C’s delivered a knockout punch that the ‘Cats couldn’t recover from, and their message has been received. They’ve now won 11 straight at the TD Garden, and are primed to host the Miami Heat (who are currently on an historic 21-game winning streak) this Monday night.
Although the Celtics are jockeying for playoff position as the season winds down, the coaching staff seems very concerned with the health of some of their older players down the stretch. Unsurprisingly, Doc Rivers informed the media that Kevin Garnett- who was “not moving we...

#celticstalk: KG out tonight for the #celtics.
— A. Sherrod Blakely (@SherrodbCSN) March 18, 2013
Celtics will attempt to end the 22 game winning streak without KG. It makes things a hell of a lot tougher, but 'ANYTHING IS POSSIBLEEEEEEEEEEE'

BOSTON — Some players claim to tune out crowd noise. Not Jeff Green. At least, not on Monday. Not when he was putting together a career outing that may have finally led Celtics fans to embrace him.
When Green stepped to the foul line for the third of his four and-one buckets of the night, his free throw routine had a soundtrack. As Green spun the ball in his hands, the TD Garden...
In the process of writing this post, I was disgusted with the confidence the fans of the Charlotte Bobkitties came into the game with. Sure, they won a couple games against the Celtics, but for a team that bad to assume they would win? Horrendous. Thankfully the Celtics shut them up by destroying their vastly inferior squad. And to think I came into today feeling sorry for Charlotte...
Jeff Green’s career night was not enough for the Boston Celtics
I just want to give Jeff Green a hug and tell him “It’s not your fault” like Robin Williams with Matt Damon in “Good Will Hunting”. If that sounds familiar, it’s because I wrote a similar thing after the Rajon Rondo game last year. Tonight, it was Jeff Green, who in replacing Kevin Garnett in the starting...
Heat 105, Celtics 103
Do moral victories exist in the minds of NBA players? Do they consider the difficult circumstances, appreciate their team’s effort, and accept the fact that, although they lost, they played really well? The short answer is probably not. Yet when the Celtics (36-30) gave the Heat, a team that has seemed untouchable throughout their 23-game winning streak, everything...
Ugh. The Celtics, without Kevin Garnett (and Rondo, and Sullinger, and Barbosa..) had the Heat right where they wanted them. They were up 17 in the first half, and 13 with 8:27 to go in the 4th. But they couldn't close the door. Lebron James was too good, scoring 37 points to go with 12 assists and 7 boards for Miami. The Celtics were led by Jeff Green's career high 43 points...
Jeff Green was freakin’ magnificent tonight, but his 43 points were not good enough to beat the Heat. Kevin Garnett missed the game because of the flu.
Fueled by a raucous home crowd, the Celtics came out fast and furious and led by 17 in the 2nd quarter. Kevin Garnett didn’t play. It was a rollercoaster of a game from that point on. Kevin Garnett didn’t play. The Heat would...

Tonight, the Celtics will the play the final game of their three game home stand when they host the red hot Miami Heat. As you probably know, the Heat are currently riding a 22 game win streak with the media at their backs. On the other hand, the Celtics have won their last two games over the Raptors and Bobcats, with the win over Charlotte coming without KG. According to 10,000...
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.
But, in front of a leather-lunged crowd that spent much of that Sunday afternoon on its feet, the Celtics, without Rajon Rondo, fought to an emotional double-overtime win.
Including that game, the Celtics have won...

The Celtics delivered a thriller in the absence of Kevin Garnett, sidelined by the flu and an adductor strain. The C’s ultimately came up short in a game that was simultaneously exhilerating and (down the stretch) incredibly frustrating. It was a tense, exciting game that came down to the wire and though Boston ultimately came up short, Celtics pride was on full display tonight...
As you have probably noticed, Kevin Garnett isn't playing tonight against the Bobcats due to a strained thigh muscle and Jeff Green started in his place
According to Doc Rivers, KG isn't expected to be out any longer than one game. This is good news because we will need him Monday when the Celtics take on the Miami Heat.
