Rajon Rondo normally kills the Nets when they play the Celtics. With Rondo injured, Paul Pierce is likely to step up
When: 8:00 PM; Wednesday, April 10th, 2013
Where: TD Garden; Boston, MA
TV: ESPN/YES Network
It's increasingly looking like the Nets will finish the regular season as the East's #4 seed, as they are three games ahead of the #5 Bulls and 3.5 over the #6 Hawks. But that doesn't mean at all that tonight's Nets-Celtics tilt is meaningless. Brooklyn has a chance to finally best Boston in the season series (haven't looked it up but gotta think it has been awhile since that's been done) and round itself back into proper shape for the playoffs as this regular season grinds to a conclusion.

Rajon Rondo spoke about his ACL injury with ESPN’s Hannah Storm.
After getting an MRI, Rondo said he first heard about the torn ACL from a radio reporter:
On the way back, I heard on the radio that Rondo might have a torn ACL. I was like… We just got the results, there’s no way possible.
I knew the reporter and was like, “How does he know this thing?” I just left the hospital...
Rajon Rondo sat down with ESPN's Hannah Storm to discuss his knee injury and recovery. He says he has no timetable for his return and admits that he does have a fear of tearing his knee again. Often times getting over the mental hurdles of recovery is just as important as the physical hurdles. We've seen that this year Derrick Rose in Chicago. As you can tell from the video...
Rajon Rondo sat down with ESPN’s Hannah Storm for a Sunday Conversation segment to talk about his ACL injury and his current rehab process. For the first time, Rondo detailed how he didn’t realize he had a serious injury until 30 minutes prior to the Celtics playing the Heat on January 27, hearing about his injury on the radio, getting back to the basics in training and his...
Rajon Rondo says he was shocked when he learned — listening to the radio, no less — that he may have suffered a season-ending knee injury in January. He called it “frustrating” not to be on the court with his teammates during his recovery, but claimed he has come to grips with the reality of his situation.
Rondo made those comments in an interview posted on ESPN.com on Thursday...
The annual “most popular jersey” report by the NBA is out. Once again, Rajon Rondo and Paul Pierce are the only two Celtics representing the team on the list. Here’s the top 15, sent out by the NBA PR department.
1. Carmelo Anthony, New York Knicks
2. LeBron James, Miami Heat
3. Kevin Durant, Oklahoma City Thunder
4. Kobe Bryant, Los Angeles Lakers
5. Derrick Rose, Chicago...
In his first public comments since undergoing surgery to repair a torn ACL in his right knee, Rajon Rondo said it's "frustrating" not to be playing with his teammates.
Boston Celtics center Kevin Garnett, disappointed in his last two games since his return from a foot injury that sidelined him for two weeks, says he will get better. Garnett had 11 points, eight rebounds and four assists in the Celtics’ 101-93 loss to the Brooklyn Nets Wednesday night.
It seems like the Celtics have more than their share of rivalries lately.
For the past few years, the Lakers, Knicks and Heat were teams Boston always got hyped for and the matches usually ended up in a shoving match or with some serious peacocking.
Now Brooklyn can be added to that list. Everyone remembers the "brawl" back in November with Rajon Rondo and Kris Humphries...
How will Doc Rivers handle Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett the rest of the regular season?
Pierce is expected to play in Wednesday’s game against the Brooklyn Nets, though he said he’ll discuss with head coach Doc Rivers the possibility of resting at times over the final five games of the regular season.
“I’m going to leave that up to coach,” Pierce said. “Maybe I’ll...
From the Celtics official twitter feed:
Paul Pierce & KG are traveling with the Celtics to Miami but neither will play against the Heat due to sore left ankles. Both are day-to-day
— Boston Celtics (@celtics) April 11, 2013
Sore left ankles, huh? Convenient their "injuries" are identical and can both fit in one tweet. The fact that Pierce and Garnett are making...
Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett are both nursing ankle injures.

“I think the reason people are going small is for the advantage, just trying to be quicker, trying to increase the pace,” Garnett said. “I think we’re doing the opposite. Obviously we’re still trying...
The Celtics-Heat rivalry has been strong ever since the self-proclaimed King James decided to famously take his talents to South Beach. Miami had the talent, but Boston had the experience—up until last year when the new big three, donning Miami red, captured the allusive NBA championship and Boston and Miami’s roles were immediately changed. Tonight will most definitely have...
