When Celtics All Star Rajon Rondo was lost to a season ending injury he wasÂ dominating the NBA in triple doubles, even posting one in each of his final two games. Â In BostonâsÂ first contest without Rondo, Paul Pierce managed a trible doubleÂ of his own. Â During the Câs 5 game winning streak Pierce has continually put up some very Rondo-esque numbers. Â His scoring is down...
BOSTON â Kevin Garnett has about as much use for individual milestones as he does for size 7 basketball sneakers. Neither really fits his game.
Still, there was no denying that Garnett was visibly moved on Thursday, when his turnaround jump shot with eight minutes left in the second quarter gave him 25,000 points for his career. A few minutes later, when the achievement was announced...
I am on record saying that the Celtics window has closed and it is time to blow up the team. KG and Paul Pierce would be considered valuable assets to teams who are in a position to make a NBA Finals run. Â Every trade should be explored by Danny Ainge at this point.
KG has a no trade clause, but from these quotes it appears if the right trade came around he would be interested....
With the loss of Rajon Rondo for the remainder of the season with an ACL injury, there have come a ton of trade rumors regarding their two biggest stars, Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce.
The two players have laughed the rumors off, but Doc Rivers has not, and according to ESPN Boston, Rivers referred to them as âsilly and media driven.â
âAll from [the media],â the Celticsâ...
Tweet With Rajon Rondoâs torn ACL removing him from the NBA All-Star game, Brook Lopez was recently announced as his replacement on the roster. However, what has yet to be addressed is who will take Rondoâs spot in the starting lineup for the Eastern Conference. Many people believed that Cavs guard Kyrie Irving was the [...]
Celtics 99, Raptors 95
Earlier this week Kevin Garnett responded to rumors that the Celtics core players may be traded with a simple, defiant phrase. He told reporters, âI bleed greenâ and in Bostonâs fifth consecutive win at Toronto on Wednesday night, he proved it. Garnett posted a vintage line with 27 points and 10 rebounds in 32 minutes, while shooting an efficient 11-18...
Rajon Rondo is looking at a long road back from ACL surgery, but heâll have a familiar face helping him along as he recovers.
Former Celtics teammate Kendrick Perkins, now with the Oklahoma City Thunder, had a similar injury in 2010, when he tore the anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee while playing the Lakers in the NBA Finals. Perkins was back on the court within seven...
Allow me to be the first to reference a âturn back the clock performanceâ by Kevin Garnett. Â KG put up 27 and 10 to carry the CelticsâŚ and he did it in just 32 minutes and 18 shots. Â Leandro Barbosa chipped in 14 points, 12 in the 4th quarter, to erase a 10 point Raptors lead to start the 4th, and steal a 99-95 win.
How night-and-day was this game? Â The Raptors won the 1st...
In 18 years as an NBA player, Grant Hill has seen every shape and style of coach. He was reunited, briefly, with one of his former coaches on Sunday afternoon.
Doc Rivers, whose Celtics handed Hill and the Los Angeles Clippers a 106-104 defeat, coached Hill for three-plus seasons in Orlando. Although Hillâs time with the Magic was marred by injuries and Riversâ final season with...
I do not want to highlight one player in tonightâs win, as this was truly one of the Celtics best team efforts of the year.Â In direct opposition to what I just said, the only player I do want to highlight is Kevin Garnett, who got his 25,000th point tonight with a fade-away jumper. Â His response? Thanking all the people who helped him get there and finished with a âitâs...
The Celtics may have lost both Rajon Rondo and Jared Sullinger for the season due to injuries, but the teamâs recent play wouldnât suggest any problems.
Boston has won four in a row since Rondo went down, and the team appears to be rolling right along despite whatever injury troubles pop up.
While Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierceâs names swirl in trade rumors, however, the Celtics...
8 a.m. ET: The Raptors got a whole lot more interesting last week when the perennial Atlantic Division also-rans picked up Rudy Gay in a three-team trade with the Grizzlies and Pistons. They still sit comfortably outside the playoff picture â at 17-31, they are 7 1/2 games behind the Celtics in the race for the No. 8 seed in the Eastern Conference â but they did begin Gayâs...
