Brandon Bass said he isn't worrying about whether he will be covering LeBron James Monday night and talked about stepping in for an injured KG. Paul Pierce had another efficient game and credited the team with stepping up defensively in the second half. Jason Terry was perfect from downtown (3/3 3FG) and said that they knew they gave the previous games away to the Bobcats and if they were to come back to the Garden, "We were gonna slap them." Jeff Green: "They whooped us back at their place, so we wanted to come out, be aggressive and send the message.” Doc Rivers said Paul Pierce has been underrated his whole career and even Doc himself underrated him. Sean Bakke joined Jared Weiss on The Garden Report to break down the Celtics defense with Brandon Bass at the helm and the first big home minutes for Shavlik Randolph. J Weiss broke down the three key points from the game from Doc's podium on Three at the Buzzer.
