8 a.m. ET: Kevin Garnett would not miss this one, would he? Garnett, who sat out Saturday’s game against the Bobcats with a strained muscle in his left thigh, has not said whether he will play Monday. The Celtics (36-29) sure would like him to, since their opponent is none other than LeBron James and the streaking Heat (51-14). The Heat come into Boston with something to prove, regardless of a 22-game win streak. Remember, the Heat were the first team to fall victim to the Rajon Rondo-less Celtics. Some observers are wondering if the Celtics do not still have a mental edge over James despite last year’s Eastern Conference Finals win. Join us for updates and analysis from TD Garden during the game, which tips off at 8 p.m. ET. Photo via Facebook/Boston Celtics from B/R
