Now that's what we're talking about. After a pair of one-point games, the Boston Celtics said "enough of this" and took it to the Philadelphia 76ers in Game 3 of their Eastern Conference semifinal series, obliterating the competition 107-91 on Philly's own court. Kevin Garnett, Paul Pierce and Rajon Rondo combined for 74 of Boston's points, while Rondo had 14 assists and Garnett added 13 rebounds, one more than Pierce's 13, in what was a one-sided game from the opening tipoff through to the final buzzer.

This Philadelphia 76ers fan is sexy and he knows it! Watch as this massive Philadelphia fan attempts to distract Kevin Garnett during a pair of free throw attempts by flashing his flabby fat rolls mid-shot.

Celtics Need More of Game 1 Kevin Garnett As Series With 76ers Shifts to Philadelphia

Kevin Garnett turns 36 on Saturday, the latest evidence that he's no longer the dominating force in the prime of his career that ensured he'll have a post-retirement home in Springfield. If you watched Garnett in Game 1 of the Celtics' series with the 76ers, though, you'd swear that Garnett was on the verge of turning 36, not 26. He turned in 29 points of 12-of-20...

Rajon Rondo, Kevin Garnett Must Play Bigger Roles for Celtics to Regain Advantage in Philadelphia (Video)

Rajon Rondo struggled mightily throughout Game 2 on Monday night. Kevin Garnett showed poise and desire in the fourth quarter, but the drive still wasn't enough to avoid the eventual 82-81 loss to the 76ers.

Kevin Garnett Playing Like MVP of Playoffs, But Heat, Thunder Remain Likely Finals Favorites

PHILADELPHIA -- Keyon Dooling and the rest of the Celtics are running out of superlatives to describe Kevin Garnett. The proud, ageless big man has attracted all sorts of praise for his play in these playoffs, and there is little anyone can add at this point that will do Garnett's performances justice. So Dooling kept it simple. "He's playing the best ball in the NBA...

Keyon Dooling Brings Energy On, Off Court as Captain of Celtics Bench

PHILADELPHIA -- Kevin Garnett exited the game, walked to the Celtics bench and plopped down in a seat next to Keyon Dooling. Garnett was on his way to a 27-point, 13-rebound showing in the Celtics' blowout victory over the Sixers in Game 3 of the Eastern Conference semifinals, and Dooling welcomed him to the bench by proceeding to talk his ear off. It did not appear as though...

Dunk of the night: Paul Pierce turns back the clock and soars over the 76ers. Twice

Paul Pierce is a sure fire future Hall of Famer.  I started somewhat of a riot on Twitter a week or so ago when I claimed I wold take Paul Pierce over Scottie Pippen. But that is for another article all together.  You knew the Celtics, sensing this is their last best chance at a title, would come out more [...]

Fat ass 76ers fan jiggles his rolls (Video)

This was easily the most disturbing image of the playoffs. Fat Sixers fan up there says he would have beaten Charles Barkley in the shirt-off. Sorry bro, not unless you crapped out half a person. Ugh, that was disgusting. What’s incredible is that Kevin Garnett managed to knock down free throws even with that guy jiggling his rolls in the stands. Observe: The Flava Flav clock...

Recap: The Celtics refused to win this game

Eighteen point leads are never safe in the NBA, especially when held by the Celtics. Aided by a 76ers team that couldn't shoot straight, the Celtics led by 15 in the 1st quarter, 15 at the half, and 18 early in the 3rd quarter. But in typical Celtics fashion, the C's eased up and gave it all away. Three stats tell the story: 17 turnovers. 28 personal fouls. 17 offensive...
