Stop those silly questions. KG has something real to say.
Kevin Garnett was in fine interviewing spirits after the Celtics held off the Knicks 92-86 on Wednesday night, keeping their first-round series alive as the Celts chipped back to 3-2. When Comcast SportsNet’s Greg Dickerson stopped Garnett on the sideline for a quick chat before Garnett headed to the locker room, Garnett...
Doc had this to say yesterday about his 17 year veteran future Hall of Fame center (via CSNNE's Jimmy Toscano):
"People have no idea what he goes through, and you can't unfortunately. But it really is [admirable] watching him just in there now doing all the stuff that they're doing, the stretching. He just plays because he loves it, and it's will. A lot of guys...
In Game 1 of this series Kevin Garnett scored 8 points and grabbed 9 rebounds. In Game 2 he posted 12 and 11, Game Three 12 and 17, Game Four 13 and 17, and in Game 5 he had 16 points and 18 boards. At this pace should we expect a 20/20 game from him tonight?
Garnett's 14.4 rebounds per game lead the entire league this postseason. He's the first Celtic player to pull...
Paul Pierce is a Celtic legend and will one day have his number hanging from the rafters.
But, will he ever wear a different uniform?
We've seen that Danny Ainge has been very hesitant to move Pierce in the past. We've heard rumors of deals that could've sent him to the Nets, or Mavs. We heard that the Celtics could've gotten Josh Smith for Pierce this trade deadline...
Every morning, we compile the links of the day and dump them here… highlighting the big storyline. Because there’s nothing quite as satisfying as a good morning dump.
Two weeks shy of his 37th birthday, Kevin Garnett finds himself in the midst of maybe the most impressive rebounding stretch of his entire 18-year NBA career.
Try these numbers on for size: Not only does the Celtics...

The biggest head scratching move on what hopefully will turn out to be a series swinging Celtics game 4 win, was the Knicks deciding to no longer double Paul Pierce and Jeff Green. The Knicks went away from throwing two guys on them for every first catch, but why? Clearly it had been working in the first three games and inexplicably they decided to stop doing that in the first half...
With the clock ticking down and the Knicks climbing back into the game, Kevin Garnett showed a series of pump fakes, got airspace from Tyson Chandler, and made a deep two point jumper to put Boston ahead by seven with 48 seconds to go. Garnett was pushing 40 minutes of playing time, but his energy and focus was there when the Celtics needed it most. The "Big Ticket" finished...
NEW YORK – Kevin Garnett is stepping up on both ends o carry the Boston Celtics to a 45-39 halftime lead over the New York Knicks in Game 5. The Celtics, down 3-1 in the series, got off to the type of deflating start that has become synonymous with the phrase “second half” over the past week. But Brandon Bass hit all four of his shots and played good defense on Carmelo Anthony...
Kevin Garnett buried the New York Knicks in Game 5 with this 15-footer over the outstretched arm of Tyson Chandler.
The Boston Celtics are still alive in their Eastern Conference quarterfinal series as they beat the New York Knicks in Game 5 to send the teams back to Boston for Game 6.
After the Knicks won Game 3 in convincing fashion, the sentiment was that the Celtics were done...
NEW YORK – They came dressed in black. They got out to an 11-0 lead. It looked like the Knicks were about to bury the body when Brandon Bass suddenly woke up. The Celtics got to the line seven times in the next five minutes and suddenly they had momentum again. The Celtics got their first lead of the game on a Kevin Garnett pick-and-roll from Paul Pierce and never relinquished...
Boston Celtics reserve guard Jordan Crawford instigated a postgame tussle by taunting New York Knicks star Carmelo Anthony following Boston’s 92-86 victory over the Knicks in Game 5 on Wednesday night at Madison Square Garden.
As both teams crossed
Now, this is a series. Knicks and Celtics go back to Boston for Game Six on May 3rd at 7:00 pm. Boston won last night 92-86. The Celtics looked really good, while the Knicks looked lackluster to say the least. After going up 3-0, the Knicks are traveling back to Boston up just 3-2. Let's not choke here, fellas. A couple thoughts and notes on the Celtics' win.
The Celtics’ 92-86 win Wednesday night suddenly made Boston and New York’s Eastern Conference Quarterfinal series very interesting.
The victory allowed the Celts to stave off elimination for a second consecutive game and brought the best-of-seven series back to TD Garden for Game 6. The Carmelo Anthony-led Knicks rode their star’s hot shooting to 3-0 series lead, but the combination...
Like the Avengers coming together, last night's Game 5 win featured Celtics heroes from past games putting together an impressive team effort. Iron Man Jeff Green led the charge with 18 points, 4 rebounds and 4 assists - including hitting two key threes in the final minutes which fended off the Knicks' rally attempts. Jason The JET Terry had 17 points, 4 boards, 3 assists...
