Kevin Garnett and the Boston Celtics had been playing well even with the distraction of the trade deadline looming. Now that it's come and gone with his team still intact, Garnett will try to lead the Celtics to another win over the struggling Sacramento Kings on Friday night. After scoring 21 points in a victory over the Los Angeles Clippers on Monday, Garnett had a team-leading 24 in a 105-103 win over Golden State on Wednesday, including the tiebreaking jumper with 5.1 seconds left. Brandon Bass added a season-high 22 points as the Celtics improved to 2-1 on their eight-game road trip, which ends March 23 in Philadelphia. Garnett scored 12 in the fourth quarter while finishing one shy of his season high.

Celtics 105, Warriors 103 - Kevin Garnett Lifts Celtics in Tight Game

Kevin Garnett had been hot all night. It was as if he picked up a newspaper this morning and it was dated 2004. So with the score knotted at 103 and just 28 seconds on the clock, Paul Pierce kicked the ball out of the paint and in one fluid motion, KG gently placed the ball in the hoop from 18 feet out. A close game from the start, neither team seemed to find much separation. Boston...

9 a.m. ET: A road trip that had gotten off to an overall good start for the Celtics hit a speed bump Friday with a 25-point loss to the Kings.

Danny and Doc were right: The Celtics did nothing

The NBA trade deadline has passed and the Celtics did NOT make a major move (at this hour, we haven't heard word of a minor move). Rajon Rondo, Ray Allen, Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce will all be wearing Celtic green for the rest of the season. There was a completely false Twitter report that the Clippers backed out of a deal that would have sent Ray Allen to Los Angeles...

The NBA trade deadline has come and gone, and all the same guys are still here.  I’d like to that Danny Ainge for listening to me.  Everybody’s main concern now about the Celtics is their lack of big men; Greg Stiemsma is the only active true center on the roster.  But recent numbers show it might not be as great a problem as people think.  Since the All-Star break Boston...
