Kevin Garnett hit another 3 pointer in today's victory, so you knew he was going to be asked about it afterwards. Here's is KG's rant via Jessica Camerato's twitter:
"I can shoot 3's" pt 1: "Listen, I can shoot 3's. Cut this, alright? Because I don't want anymore questions about this. I can shoot 3's. You all are acting like I'm...
Expecting anything but drama in this game would have been foolish as the Boston Celtics outlast the Knicks 91-89. This game was a nail-biter as the officials seemed to control the outcome all around. First Paul Pierce made a huge three pointer as the shot clock went off that ended up not counting, then Landry Fields air balled the go ahead three, next Pierce made...
After every Minnesota Timberwolves game, Anthony Tolliver can be found sitting in front of his locker with ice packs on his knees and wrist and a heavy wrap on his lower back.
Celtics newcomer Mickael Pietrus talks to the media about his love for Kevin Garnett, including how much he learns from him and tries to emulate his pre-game warm-up routine (minus banging his head). Pietrus discusses his fight with Garnett during last year's Suns-Celtics game, and confesses that the main reason he came to Boston was to play with KG and Doc Rivers.

What's uglier - Rajon Rondo's new shiner or the offensive play by both teams in tonight's 91-89 Celtics victory?
The Knicks controlled (I use that term loosely) this game for 3 quarters. They were the more aggressive team on both sides of the ball. But as the Knicks energy level faded in the 4th, the Celtics awoke and made the big plays.
Offensively, the Celtics...
Kevin Garnett matched his season-high with 24 points and grabbed nine rebounds to lead the Boston Celtics to their fourth straight win, 98-80 over the Memphis Grizzlies on Sunday.
Doc Rivers confirms that Rajon Rondo will be back in the line-up for tonight's match-up between the Boston Celtics and the New York Knicks. Marquis Daniels is out, and Avery Bradley and E'Twaun Moore will share minutes backing up Rondo tonight.
Paul Pierce scored 30 points and Ray Allen had nine of his 14 in the final quarter to lift the Boston Celtics to a 91-89 win over the struggling New York Knicks on Friday night.
MINNEAPOLIS The last time the Timberwolves were .500 or better this late in the season was in 2006-07, when Minnesota was 22-22.
To put it into perspective, Kevin Garnett was still a Timberwolf, not a Celtic. Kevin Love, currently the longest-tenured Wolves player on the Wolves' roster, was a senior at Lake Oswego High School in Oregon.
