In the Celtics early start on Christmas Day, CSN viewers were surrounded with holiday spirit, including anecdotal stories of KG buying Scal a Louis Vuitton suitcase, and Keyon Dooling dishing out holiday cheer like it he was playing point guard again. Then things became reminiscent of the last meeting between Brooklyn and Boston when Gerald Wallace and Kevin Garnett got a little feisty when Wallace was went up for a lay-up after an offensive rebound (via CSNNE):“He just grabbed my shorts. I tried to help him up, make sure he didn’t fall,” Garnett said in describing his role on the play. “And he just kept grabbing my shorts. So I asked him what he was doing. He didn’t respond. And I looked at him, what you doing? And I tried to smack his hand away. It really wasn’t nothing. He just jacked my shorts.”This one, on replay, looked bad for Wallace. He was standing straight up, and continued to latch on to KG’s shorts for dear life. Perhaps it was an attempt to keep his Brooklyn Nets from their recent downswing, as Wallace seemed to be the only Net with a pulse in the waning minutes of the Christmas Day showdown. Perhaps an attempt to spark his team, or maybe a forum to showcase his own personal abilities in the blowout– as Scalabrine suggested.The referees did the usual double-technical, as a way of scolding both players for bad behavior. It will be interesting to see if David Stern takes a second look at this one, as Garnett seemed to have a reasonable response to Wallace’s actions.
BEST OF MAXIM
Kevin Garnett broke out this Christmas-themed colorway of his Anta “KG3″. Ticket wore the green, red & gold kicks in today’s 93-76 win over the Brooklyn Nets. I’ll have a full report/gallery of all of today’s Christmas Celtkicks tomorrow on Red’s Army. Hope you all had a great holiday.

Kevin Garnett and Gerald Wallace both received a technical in the fourth quarter of Tuesday’s Christmas Day game after a minor scuffle. Wallace grabbed onto Garnett’s shorts following a shot attempt, something Garnett didn’t respond well to:
There has to be a rule somewhere about how long you can hold onto a man’s shorts. Gerald Wallace grabbed a handful of Kevin Garnett’s in Brooklyn Nets/Boston Celtics Christmas Day match-up. Garnett took exception when Wallace wouldn’t let go after regaining his balance. It was the kinda move that can start a brawl, which [...]
Well, it's taken a long time but we have finally reached Christmas Eve 2012. It's been a crazy holiday season, one that the Celtics shouldn't be proud of. Since the beginning of the holiday season(approximately Nov.22/Thanksgiving), Boston has gone just 7-7. Combine with a 6-6 pre-Thanksgiving record and we are stuck with a .500 basketball team. I expected more, but remember...

I'd say most people probably have Rajon Rondo and Kevin Garnett on their ballots, but I'm not sure the other three have came up in reports of being high in the voting. Honestly, Paul Pierce deserves to be up there. Either way, this is an awesome...
In the spirit of the holiday season, today’s NESN Daily poll goes a little off from the world of strictly sports.
Being that it’s Christmas Eve and Santa Claus is preparing to make his yearly journey to deliver toys to boys and girls, we thought it’d be appropriate to ponder on which Boston-area athlete might make the best imitator. You’re not soon to see any of these four...

There may not be too much Christmas spirit on display in the first of five NBA games on this holiday.

Boston (13-13) enters on a five-game road skid and has lost both matchups with Brooklyn (14-12) this season.
The Nets won 95-83 in Boston on...
