Sacramento Kings (17-29) at Boston Celtics (21-23) Wednesday, January 30, 20137:30 PM ET Regular Season Game #45, Home Game #24TV: CSNNE, CSNCA, NBA-LP 754/755Radio: WEEI, CBS Sports TD Garden Referees: Bennett Salvatore, Violet Palmer, Derek Richardson The Celtics will host the Sacramento Kings in their first game after
learning they will be without Rondo for the rest of the season. There
has been some talk of Keyon Dooling possibly returning to the team and
in the meantime, they will stick with a point guard by committee.
Expect Paul Pierce, Jeff Green, Avery Bradley, Courtney Lee, Leandro
Barbosa and Jason Terry all to share ball handling duties. Doc will
probably simplify the offense a bit without Rondo to call the plays on
This is the second of 2 meetings between these two
teams. In the first meeting in Sacramento, the Celtics gave a very
lackluster performance. Rondo was outplayed by Isaiah Thomas. DeMarcus
Cousins logged his...

When Rajon Rondo went down for the season, the Knicks guard thought he had a real shot to be named as his All-Star replacement, but alas, it just was not meant to be.
Rajon Rondo will undergo surgery in 10 to 14 days.
A torn ACL is a death sentence to any athlete. When a star in the league suffers that gruesome injury, all you can do is feel for them. It is a helpless feeling being that player, especially when they believe it is only a minor injury. That was the case for Celtics point guard Rajon Rondo, after he thought he had only hyperextended his knee during Boston’s double overtime loss...
Brooklyn Nets center Brook Lopez will replace injured Boston Celtics guard Rajon Rondo on the Eastern Conference roster for the All-Star Game, the league announced Wednesday. This will be Lopez's first All-Star Game, and he will be the only representative from the Nets, who are 27-18. Rondo was named an All-Star starter based on the fans' vote, but he is out for the rest...
With Rajon Rondo out for the year, what happens next for the Celtics?
That’s the question on everyone’s mind after learning the news of the star point guard’s torn ACL, and one with no easy answer. With Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett still playing at a high level, the C’s could still have a fighting chance this season. Then again, without Rondo, it’s hard to imagine a deep...
Yes, Celtics fans, it’s time to ask that question.
Boston had been hanging around the .500 mark for a while now, seemingly taking two steps forward (a six-game winning streak) immediately followed by two steps back (a six-game losing streak) all season. Nonetheless, the prevailing wisdom was that the C’s were a veteran team, and so long as they made the playoffs they’d have...
Kyrie Irving capped an incredible week with a deserved award.
Cleveland's electrifying guard was named Eastern Conference player of the week on Monday after leading the NBA in scoring and carrying the Cavs to three straight wins. In the three games, Irving averaged 35.7 points, scored 40 points in a win over Boston, had 35 against Milwaukee and hit a game-winning 3-pointer in...
In the wake of Rajon Rondo's season ending injury, Celtics coach Doc Rivers has to make a decision as to who he should start at guard alongside Avery Bradley. Against Miami on Sunday Rivers chose Courtney Lee instead of Jason Terry or Leandro Barbosa. It appears that Doc will keep giving the nod to Lee for the time being:
#Celtics coach Doc Rivers: Courtney Lee will continue...
As we sit here on January 30th, there are very few unknowns on the NBA landscape. After all, the season is three months old, and most teams have played anywhere from 42 to 47 games thus far. Every one of the 30 NBA teams has advanced scouts that know just about every potential line-up that a team could throw on the floor at any time, and how to defend said line-up. In the year 2013...
Boston Celtics star Paul Pierce showed up for his pre-practice meeting with reporters carrying a basketball, which he bounced from time to time while answering questions.
Get used to it: Pierce will have the ball in his hands a lot more from now on.
Two days after learning that Rajon Rondo has a torn knee ligament that will keep him out the rest of the season, the Celtics returned...
The Nets hope Brook Lopez, Deron Williams, or Joe Johnson will be named to the team as Rajon Rondo's replacement.
