The Hornets took a steamy dump on the Celtics in their lone match-up last season, winning 97-78. Go ahead, read the recap because it’s rather funny. I wasn’t too high on the Celtics back then. New Orleans has won three of four against the C’s.

BEST OF MAXIM
BOSTON — On the surface, Anthony Davis seems to have a lot in common with a young Kevin Garnett. The lithe rookie for the New Orleans Hornets is just as freakishly athletic at 6-foot-10 as Garnett was as a 19-year-old for the Minnesota Timberwolves in 1995. Just like a young Garnett, Davis’ potential is clear despite a mostly up-and-down rookie campaign.
Playing against Davis...
Speaking on TNT NBA Tip-off, Charles Barkley and Shaquille O’Neal said Garnett, who received 553,222 votes, the least among the 10 starters, didn’t deserve the honor this year.
“I love Kevin Garnett, but he’s not having an All-Star year,” Barkley said. “It’s not fair to Tyson Chandler. He should be starting in the All-Star Game.”
“Tyson Chandler should be starting...
The Celtics host the New Orleans Hornets tonight, normally a fairly insignificant game on the schedule. But today it includes the story line of C’s head coach Doc Rivers facing off against his son, Austin, who was the Hornets first round draft pick last June.
This evening could also be a big night for Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce. Garnett (24,809) needs just 7 points to pass...
A Garden technician holds a sensitive mic at Sunday's game to eavesdrop on what Carmelo Anthony and is opponents say. James Dolan ordered two of them to be used at each game to avoid more "he said, he said" situations like the one that arose between Anthony and Kevin Garnett.
There has been a lot said about KG's trash talking since something he said to Carmelo...
New York Knicks owner James Dolan is one crazy guy. After Carmelo Anthony and Kevin Garnett got in their heated on court argument, Anthony waited for Garnett at the team bus trying to straiten things out. Apparently Garnett said his wife La La “tastes like Honey Nut Cheerios.” The verbal fight resulted in technical fouls against each player, and a suspension for Carmelo for...
PHILADELPHIA (AP) -- Greivis Vasquez scored 23 points, Eric Gordon added 19 and the New Orleans Hornets beat the Philadelphia 76ers 111-99 on Tuesday night.
Ryan Anderson had 14 points, Xavier Henry scored 11 and Anthony Davis 10 for the Hornets, who are still last in the Western Conference at 12-26 -- including matching 6-13 records at home and on the road.
Jrue Holiday led the...
Congratulations to Rajon Rondo and Kevin Garnett for being voted in by the fans as starters. Between KG and Melo in the frontcourt and Dwyane Wade and Rondo in the back court, this may be one...
Tweet After the Honey Nut Cheerios incident between Carmelo Anthony and Kevin Garnett earned Anthony a one-game suspension, Knicks owner James Dolan wasn’t going to take any more chances. That’s why, according to a report, on Friday and Sunday when the Knicks matched up with the Chicago Bulls and New Orleans Hornets, Dolan had in-house [...]

Tomorrow night at 7 p.m the Boston Celtics will take on the Chicago Bulls at the TD Garden. After the loss to New Orleans on Wednesday, Rajon Rondo and Kevin Garnett are going to try to show the world why they were voted All-Stars during the prime-time exhibition game.
The loss versus New Orleans broke the Celtics 5 game winning steak, so Doc Rivers...
Pierce and KG will overtake Parish and Ewing, respectively.
The big story for the Celtics/Hornets game this evening is Doc Rivers vs. his son, Austin. But, Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce also have the opportunity to accomplish some major milestones. Garnett (24,809) trails Patrick Ewing (24,815) by just 6 points for 16th place on the NBA's all-time scoring list. Meanwhile...

NBA All-Star voting is underway, and the Celtics are finally playing like a team that has a couple of All-Stars on its roster.
Despite a hiccup on Wednesday night against the New Orleans Hornets, the C’s appear to be pulling things together, thanks in large part to their current “Big Three” of Kevin Garnett, Rajon Rondo and Paul Pierce.
While Avery Bradley‘s return to the...
The Celtics don’t blow bad teams away.We know this by now. It has been the case since 2008 when the Hawks inexplicably took the Celtics to seven games in the first round of the playoffs. For whatever reason, whether it be motivation or something else, Boston just doesn’t blow out very many teams. Instead, they grind things out, lose a few games that they shouldn’t lose, and...
