After much ado was made last night about Kevin Garnett not grabbing a single rebound in 23 minutes of play, he playfully went on a rant in front of reporters.
"You know what, I’m looking for the statistician around here. And when I find out what he looks like, we might have some problems," joked Garnett. "I had a rebound in the first quarter. That’s bull---...

When I find out what he looks like, we might have some problems...
After a 19 point, 0 rebound performance in a win over the Sixers, Kevin Garnett swore, literally, that there was something wrong with the person taking stats. Garnett has only had 4 games out of 1,274 in his career where he has been rebound-less. He swears he had one in the first quarter as he explicitly calls out the statistician, jokingly claiming it was “f****ing bulls...

How can you not love Kevin Garnett. Although I wouldn't be surprised if he actually reviewed the footage for that rebound he claims he had in the first quarter. Box score says otherwise.
Kevin Garnett doesn’t always need to grab rebounds for the Celtics to win. They beat the Sixers 92-79 even though their center didn’t snatch a single rebound. It was the first time since 1997 that happened. Paul Pierce contributed with nine assists and Jeff Green had 16 points off the bench.

The Boston Celtics continue to struggle in the middle of the Eastern Conference.
A recent series of missteps by temperamental point guard Rajon Rondo has done nothing to elevate their cause.
In their 95-94 overtime loss to Philadelphia on Friday, Rondo flubbed what should have been a game-winning scenario.

Last month, Charles Barkley said in an SI interview that calling a college basketball game with ESPN's Dick Vitale was one thing in broadcasting he'd like to do before leaving the industry. Although there are numerous hurdles and hoops in the way of ESPN's Vitale and Turner's Barkley sharing a booth, momentum is building for the pair to one day announce a game ...
The Boston Celtics had it going on against the Sixers on Saturday night.
Boston shot 53 percent from the field and held Philadelphia to just 39 percent shooting on the Celtics way to a 92-79 victory. Kevin Garnett led all Celtics scorers with 19 points, while Jeff Green chipped in 16 more off the bench. The Sixers could not come up with an answer to the Celtics’ overall team effort...
The Celtics bounced back after a heartbreaking one point loss in OT in Philly last night to dominate this game from start to finish. The Sixers never led in this game and the Celtics led by as many as 21 points. The Sixers made a run in the third quarter to cut the 20 point half time lead to 8, but the Celtics responded and went on a 7-0 run of their own to hold the Sixers off...
Jeff Green’s suddenly Mr. Consistent Offense; Kevin Garnett had zero rebounds but still managed to be awesome by shooting 9-11 for 19 points in just 23 minutes (the last stat = the most awesome); Jared Sullinger had nine rebounds in 22 minutes; Rajon Rondo continues to fill up the stat sheet; and Boston’s defense has been revived from the dead ever since Rondo wrassled with Kris...
With Dirk Nowitzki still out due to injury, the Mavericks have become O.J. Mayo's team in the interim.
Having been born in 1988, Kevin Durant could have grown up emulating '90s NBA stars like Charles Barkley, Larry "Grandmama" Johnson, Hakeem Olajuwon, Patrick Ewing, Karl Malone, Scottie Pippen, KG or - the most popular fellow at the time - His Airness, MJ. But credit Durant's throw-back brand of hoops to the fundamental play of Larry Legend. In an interview...
