Kevin Garnett Must Break His Instinct to Be Unselfish on Offense as Celtics Become More Careful With His Playing Time

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.

Rondo Didn’t Learn Anything From 2-Game Suspension

After serving a 2-game suspension for getting into a ‘shoving match’ with Nets forward Kris Humphries last Wednesday, Rajon Rondo is excited to return to the court with his team.
