With Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett both advancing to 20th and 15th respectively on the NBA scoring list, we thought it would be cool to get your favorite Pierce and KG moments. So we asked on Twitter and got a few great responses.

You can’t tune out the fact that the Miami Heat have won 20 straight games and are now tied for the third-longest winning streak in NBA history. The longest, 33 in a row, was done by the 1971-72 Los Angeles Lakers. But, if you ask Paul Pierce what he thinks about the potential of playing the Heat on a 22-game win streak come Monday, he simply doesn’t care and if truth be told...
BOSTON — Twenty years from now, in a break in the action during a Celtics game at the new TD Garden, some precocious little girl or some meathead from the South Shore will show up on the video screen for one of those fan trivia contests. At stake will be a free Apple iChip, the digital music device that is installed directly into the user’s skull, and the question will hearken...
It wasn’t that long ago that rumors were swirling about drastically changing the Boston Celtics roster to make a playoff run, but after no blockbuster trades were made, the C’s find themselves sitting pretty in the standings and working with what they have.
Only 3 1/2 games back of the New York Knicks in the division standings, the Celtics can almost look back to earlier in the...
8 a.m. ET: OK, so the first part of this back-to-back didn’t go the way the Celtics planned. With Paul Pierce taking the night off, the Celtics “laid an egg” in Charlotte on Tuesday, in coach Doc Rivers’ words, dropping their second straight game and losing a bit more ground in the Eastern Conference playoff race.
Now, after failing to take care of business against the league’s...

Many fans are in awe and are amazed by the Miami Heat’s win-streak this season, as they have extended it to 20 games. The Heat have a good shot at breaking the Los Angeles Lakers four-decade record of most consecutive wins, with 33.
However, the biggest challenge will be on Monday, March 18 when they face the Boston Celtics. Ironically...
Just under a week ago the Celtics played the Charlotte Bobcats, the worst team in the league, and lost. Badly. It was expected to be a different story tonight, and the C's delivered.
The Celtics were missing Kevin Garnett tonight but still paid the Bobcats back in kind, handing them a 17 point loss 105-88.
After struggling to put the 'Cats away early, they came out in the...
As you have probably noticed, Kevin Garnett isn't playing tonight against the Bobcats due to a strained thigh muscle and Jeff Green started in his place
According to Doc Rivers, KG isn't expected to be out any longer than one game. This is good news because we will need him Monday when the Celtics take on the Miami Heat.

The Celtics took a 9 point lead into the half, but with about two and a half minutes to go in the third, the C’s hit the gas and left the Raptors in the rear view mirror. They crushed the Raps 112-88 for their 10th straight home win. The Celtics bench was a giant part of the blowout, outscoring the Raptors bench 58-29.
Paul Pierce had a nice return from his day...
It was sad to see 4 pages on one game thread and 19 on another. Those game threads used to have over 100 pages every game. The Celtics did get the benefit of some calls last night. I'm amazed at how many fans hate their head coach. Makes me very thankful for Doc. Good game for the Celtics. Not so much for the Raptors. Enjoy today's comments...
Boston Celtics forward Kevin Garnett will miss Saturday night's game against Charlotte with a strained left thigh muscle.
Celtics coach Doc Rivers told reporters before the game that the 17-year veteran didn't look good in practice on Friday, so the team decided to sit him.
''Kevin's not playing tonight,'' Rivers said. ''Not because it's...
The Boston Celtics have played surprisingly well since losing point guard Rajon Rondo for the season.
They were stunningly awful without Paul Pierce for the first time in 2012-13.
Pierce should be back on Wednesday night when the Celtics try to win their 10th straight at home and 10th in a row overall versus the Toronto Raptors.
After the Celtics' five-game winning streak...

KG struggled mightily today in all aspects of the game, and Doc did the right thing by benching him early. His jumper was not as crisp as usual, and he could not hit anything in the paint. It was his worst game in...
Boston Celtics coach Doc Rivers stated during his pregame media availability that Kevin Garnett will be given the night off tonight against the Charlotte Bobcats. Rivers on Garnett: Well Kevin's not playing tonight, not because it's a night off, he wasn't moving well in practice or today and so we are sitting him. It was later announced after the coach's availability...
