BOSTON — Kevin Garnett said he was not doing anything differently, that his attention was still on his defense first and foremost while he took his offense as it came within the flow of the game. Anybody who has watched Garnett play over the years, though, can see how unnatural it looked and how uncomfortable he must have felt taking so many shots, so early in the game, because...
Via ESPN Boston:“I can guarantee that the people in Minnesota, they miss what he does in the locker room,” Rivers said. “They miss what he does on the floor in practice everyday, his work ethic. He has this ability to give himself to a team. It’s rare that you see a superstar do that, and he does that. I mean, he gives himself completely to his team, and just tells them to...
8 a.m. ET: Absence makes the heart grow fonder and familiarity breeds contempt, so by the end of the weekend the Celtics and Sixers should be good and sick of each other.
The Celtics travel to Philadelphia on Friday for the opener of a two-game, home-and-home set with the rival Sixers. Although back-to-backs are not unusual in the NBA – this will be the sixth one of the season...
Here are the full highlights of Kevin Garnett's 18 point night versus the Timberwolves yesterday. KG finished with 10 rebounds and 4 assists to go along with his 18 points.
Kevin Love had the following to say about KG after the game:
"[KG] does whatever he needs to do in order for his team to win & that sums up Kevin Garnett to me.
He’s intense. He’s KG. He’s...
Kevin Garnett scored 18 points, grabbed 10 rebounds and remained unbeaten against his former team as the Boston Celtics beat the Minnesota Timberwolves 104-94 on Wednesday night in Rajon Rondo's return from a two-game suspension.

Minnesota's past and future
The Boston Celtics come into this game 9-8 and looking for answers. After blowing a huge lead against the Milwaukee Bucks, let's hope we can rebound.
They play the Minnesota Timbervolves today in the "Kevin Garnett/Greg Stiemsma Bowl". If i recall, since we have had Kevin Garnett, we have not lost at home to these Wolves.

About 2 years ago, I had the pleasure of meeting die-hard Celtics fan Chris H, aka “Hal Dogg” at TD Garden. This guy is just full of energy and Celtic Pride. He’s at the Garden for pretty much every home game with the attitude that the Celtics are going to win, no matter what.
Chris, a 23 year-old C’s fan from Blackstone...
The Celtics started aggressively, but faded down the stretch of the second quarter to lull us all into believing we were in for another frustrating dog fight.
But they took control of the game in the second half to push their lead up as high as 17 before settling for a 104-94 win. The starters, led by Kevin Garnett, demolished the Timberwolves… scoring 82 of the Celtics 104 points...

Kevin Garnett had 18 points and 10 rebounds and Rajon Rondo added 17 points and 11 assists to lead the Celtics over the Timberwolves. Kevin Love tried to will the Wolves back into the game with 19 points and 13 rebounds, but to no avail as all Celtics starters finished with double-digits in the points [...]
The Boston Celtics should wake up tomorrow morning with a few regrets. Kevin Garnett missed a wide open layup during crunch time. So did Paul Pierce. Courtney Lee airballed a wide open three. Rajon Rondo missed a shot to end regulation and couldn’t get his footing when he had a chance to steal a win on the final play of overtime.The Celtics also did a few really good things down...
The Celtics entered this season intending to go small, and so far their plan has yielded mixed results. They remain just a little too old and slow to keep up with the fast-paced teams and a little too small to bang with the big bodies.
Well before Darko Milicic left the team to be with his sick mother and Jason Collins took on an increased role, the Celtics’ need for another big...
