The Boston Celtics began their season turnaround with a 94-75 drubbing of the Indiana Pacers. Rajon Rondo (18 pts, 7 asts, 5 rebs) and Kevin Garnett (18 pts, 7 rebs) led the charge for the Celtics.
Get it to: Avery Bradley
We all remember Bradley as the defensi...
BEST OF MAXIM
The Game Changer, Avery Bradley, had his best performance of the year last night as he registered season highs of 22 points (on 10-of-15 shooting), 7 rebounds and 5 assists in leading the C's to a convincing 109-101 road victory over the Sixers. Not to mention AB's tenacious, hound-like D on Jrue Holiday (18 points on only 6-of-17 shooting) and the overall energy he pumped...

Avery Bradley has always been known to be a knack on the defensive end — whether it is on-ball defending or full-court rundown blocks — but Tuesday’s 22-point performance against the Philadelphia 76ers was a true testament to his demeanor.
Last year in his rookie campaign, he wasn’t able to flourish mainly due to multiple shoulder...
Who is Rajon Rondo? Is he part of the Boston Celtics' future?
When you look at him, you see a talent that has never been seen before. He brings his own way of doing things and doesn't take advice from anyone.
He will tell you he that he is the best point guard in the league and you in turn will think he is full of himself. To be in the league, you have to feel that...
"[The referee] said, ‘I had one shoulder done and I was out six months and I still feel bad.’ I said, ‘That’s why you’re an official,’" Rivers recalled with a laugh. "I did see three bad calls after that, I said, ‘My gosh, I was just joking.'"
Both Rivers and Kevin Garnett admitted that Bradley is likely not 100 perent this season...
Avery Bradley broke out with 22 points while Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett each logged less than 30 minutes, so any criticism of the Celtics’ victory over the Sixers on Tuesday needs to be tempered with those three facts. Any time Doc Rivers‘ guys can earn a “W” without forcing their aging All-Stars to carry a heavy load — particularly on the first leg of a road back-to...
Good road win for the Celtics. The Sixers have had it rough with injuries this season. Poor Sixers fans want to root for a loss for more ping pong balls but they hate the Celtics so much that they are torn about it. Great game by Bradley. I've highlighted a few favorites. What are yours?
All the teams are tanking right now. Very hard to make progress in draft order...
Thanks to New England Sports Network’s Celtics writer Ben Watanabe, I chimed in with the Boston Celtics’ duo — Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett — to discuss their progression in the 2013 season as well as a preview of how this season and beyond may pan out.
In the NBA, practice is the most important aspect for young guys, but for the older class players, like No. 34 and No....
The Celtics entered tonight's game in Philadelphia in a very intriguing position in the Eastern Conference playoff race. While the Miami Heat are certainly out of reach, and the Pacers and Knicks are in great position to grab the #2 and 3 seeds - the Celtics suddenly found themselves just one game back in the loss column of the Bulls, Hawks, and Nets. So while they have been...
Jeff Green, Kevin Garnett, and Doc Rivers discuss the Celtics game winning basket (Great play call by Doc!).

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) -- Kevin Garnett found Jeff Green all alone under the basket for a layup with 0.5 seconds remaining to finish off a fourth-quarter comeback from 14 points down, and the Boston Celtics beat the Indiana Pacers 83-81 on Wednesday night.
Garnett led the Celtics with 18 points and 10 rebounds and dragged Boston back after they trailed most of the final three quarters...
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.
“We’ve given him more time off this year than we ever have for him,” Rivers said. “In the past, we couldn’t even brooch that subject with him. This year, he wants the days off. So, I think he’s gotten...
Paul Pierce had 18 points and 11 rebounds, and Avery Bradley scored 22 points to lead the Boston Celtics to a 109-101 win over the Philadelphia 76ers on Wednesday night.
Kevin Garnett scored 18 points to help the Celtics continued their push up the Eastern Conference standings. The Celtics entered in seventh, but were no more than two games behind the next three teams ahead in the...
This is how you execute: Kevin Garnett delivers a backdoor pass to an open Jeff Green for the layup with .5 seconds left as the Boston Celtics get the 83-81 win over the Indiana Pacers.
The Indiana Pacers have surged into second place in the Eastern Conference and have an excellent chance to win their first Central Division title in nine years.
Anything beyond that may involve getting past the Boston Celtics.
In a possible playoff preview, Indiana seeks an eighth victory in nine tries Wednesday night by preventing visiting Boston from extending its winning streak...
The C’s pulled out an ugly 109-101 win over the 76ers, much to the happiness of the Sixer fans. Most of the fans were rooting for a loss to try and land some favorable Ping-Pong balls for the upcoming draft. The majority of comments were bashing Turner/Hawes and praising Moultrie and a lot of them were pretty witty. Continue on to check the misery of 6er Nation.
