The final preseason game televised by “ESPN” before the 2007-2008 campaign, was a contest between the Cleveland Cavaliers and the Boston Celtics. Cleveland had represented the Eastern Conference in the NBA Finals the previous June, while the Celtics had undergone a major makeover during the off-season; trading for veterans Ray Allen and Kevin Garnett, to win their first NBA Championship since 1986.
The reason that an exhibition game has remained embedded in my brain; when hundreds of regular season and Playoff games played since that time have slipped away, was the way that Celtics squad performed in that contest. Boston, yet to play a regular season contest with a revamped team; looked like a group that had been together for years. Allen, Garnett and Paul Pierce, were a well-tuned machine and point guard Rajon Rondo; thought of as the weak link in the starting rotation, due to his lack of experience; turned out to be a big asset. He ran the offense, like a seasoned pro, having no ...

In his most introspective moments, and really at any other time of day, Kevin Garnett is prone to complex metaphors. He uses them, I think, in an attempt to simplify his own thoughts when relating them to everyone else. So it was little surprise when Garnett referred to a cackling animal when describing how his team needs to behave after Friday night’s loss to the Milwaukee Bucks...
Ray Allen downplayed Kevin Garnett's cold shoulder on Tuesday night, saying, "That's just KG." Well, KG's explanation was KG-esque.
Garnett, who completely ignored Allen's attempt to exchange some pleasantries upon checking into Tuesday's game, said he was just focused on the task at hand. Then again, the jersey Allen was wearing had...
Celtics star Kevin Garnett said he lost Ray Allen’s number once he defected to the Heat. Garnett takes that team jumping thing seriously- at least from Ray Allen. Allen went over to the C’s bench before tip-off to give dap to the coaching staff and acknowledge KG. But the gesture wasn’t reciprocated. video via IFWT
MIAMI This was not opening night and one final celebration of an NBA Championship.
Nor was it the season's first road game amid the unusualness produced by a storm of the century.

Doc Rivers and the Celtics need to get back to worrying about getting through the regular season
Opening night in the NBA for the Boston Celtics had almost everything. There was Kevin Garnett giving the Ray Allen “I will (bleeping) murder you” face, both the Celtics and the Heat played hard and the game even ended with a hard foul that has both teams riled up and ready to throw...
Ray Allen had a four-point play with 6.7 seconds left that put Miami ahead for good, Chris Bosh scored 40 points and the Heat held off the Denver Nuggets 119-116 on Saturday night.
LeBron James finished with 20 points, 11 assists and nine rebounds, and Allen scored 23 for the Heat, who escaped when Danilo Gallinari's 3-point try with two seconds left bounced off the rim.

Lots of hate for the Celtics as can be expected along with some
gloating over Ray's performance. They also do a lot of whining about
the refs for a team that gets more than their share of the calls. They
think Wade gets no respect from the refs? How about the fact that he
was allowed to push off on every drive to the basket and get away with
it, which resulted in a...
The Heat are going to be pretty tough to beat. That’s it. Ok, that may not have been the only thing we learned from the NBA’s opening night, but it was certainly the most convincing. The defending Champs picked up right where they left off, steadily handling the East’s second best squad in the Boston Celtics. Miami’s new additions, Ray Allen and Rashard Lewis, took little...
The Celtics came out strong in this game and looked like they were going to run away with this game in a blow out. The Celtics sprinted out to a 17-2 start in which the Wizards' only points came on a Kevin Garnett goal tending call, which was actually a clean block. At the end of the first quarter, the Celtics were up 26-12 and led by 7 at the half. The Wizards' second...
