BOSTON -- Kevin Garnett's job just got easier. For more than two-thirds of the season, Garnett carried the Celtics' second unit. The veteran big man -- don't call him a "center" within earshot -- anchored the team on both ends of the floor when his strict substitution pattern called for him to play extended minutes with the Celtics reserves. Since mid-February, Garnett's burden has lessened. Greg Stiemsma and Sasha Pavlovic have seen their roles and minutes increase, and in the past three games Garnett has enjoyed the aid of another "Big Three" member in Ray Allen. Allen was expected to...

Garnett helps Celtics hold off Heat in clutch: BOS 115 MIA 107

If I told you before the season that in a Celtics-Heat game: one team would shoot 60%, out-rebound their opponent 40-34, score their highest point total of the season and have one of their star players go 5-for-5 in the fourth quarter to hold off the opposition you would probably guess that team was the Heat. Nope, it was Boston. The "old Celtics" showed tonight that...

KG not feeling Doc's comments from Thursday night

So Doc went off on the team's effort following Thursday night's disappointing loss to the Rose-less Bulls. Here's what Kevin Garnett had to say via the Globe:“That’s disappointing, he said that to us,’’ Garnett said. “I’m out there on the floor, I don’t think nobody is out there playing [with less effort] or [half-hearted]. Maybe he assessed something different...

Boston Celtics: Kevin Garnett reacts to Doc Rivers Tirade

“That’s disappointing, he said that to us,’’ Kevin Garnett said. “I’m out there on the floor, I don’t think nobody is out there playing [with less effort] or [half-hearted].

Video: Pierce & KG dance along with Gino

  The Gino dance is everyone's favorite part of a Celtics blowout win at home.  But no one... NO ONE... loves it like Kevin Garnett.  I wish I loved anything like KG loves that video.  It seems like that video is like a hypnotist snapping his fingers and waking someone out of their sleep.  KG goes from "deranged lunatic" to "kid laughing at the circus"...

Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett dancing to Gino TIme

A bunch of people were looking for this video of Garnett and Pierce dancing to Gino Time last night. Luckily, MrTripleDouble10 posted it to his Youtube page. Lots of dancing went on at the TD Garden last night, between KG and Pierce in the video above and Mickael Pietrus getting down with the Celtics dancers. And I love it!

Paul Pierce, Kevin Garnett Dance to 'Gino Time' During Celtics' Blowout Win Over 76ers (Video)

There are few traditions at Celtics games that seem to captivate fans more than "Gino Time." Apparently, the players aren't immune to catching Gino fever either. Since the 2008 season, every time the C's win a home game, a clip from the Disco-era music show American Bandstand gets played on the TD Garden Jumbotron. The video features a man dancing in a tight Gino...

8 a.m. ET: The Celtics' spring into the lead in the Atlantic Division, and the top-four playoff seed that accompanies it, has had one major hole.

The Celtics (31-24) get an opportunity to...

Recap: Celtics prove Heat "ain't so bad"

I was wrong. After getting embarrassed last week in Boston, I thought the Heat were going to pound the Celtics tonight. Wrong, wrong, wrong. The Celtics walked into Miami and *****-slapped the Heat, 115-107. What's even more shocking, they did it with offense. They shot 60% and 63% from three. This was a tough win. After the Celtics raced out to an 18-point 2nd quarter...

Boston Celtics’ historical-level defense, new starting lineup spearheading recent run

It’s become an annual rite of passage to discount the Boston Celtics’ playoff chances.
