Rajon Rondo sat down with ESPN's Hannah Storm to discuss his knee injury and recovery. He says he has no timetable for his return and admits that he does have a fear of tearing his knee again. Often times getting over the mental hurdles of recovery is just as important as the physical hurdles. We've seen that this year Derrick Rose in Chicago. As you can tell from the video...

Boston Celtics center Kevin Garnett, disappointed in his last two games since his return from a foot injury that sidelined him for two weeks, says he will get better. Garnett had 11 points, eight rebounds and four assists in the Celtics’ 101-93 loss to the Brooklyn Nets Wednesday night.
Jeff Green and Paul Pierce have been working well together on offense.Doc Rivers recently told the media that during the playoffs, he is considering using a lineup that includes Paul Pierce and Jeff Green both starting at shooting guard and small forward. This was obviously a revelation, since what would presumably be the playoff starting lineup (Bradley-Pierce-Green-Bass-Garnett...
Boston Celtics coach Doc Rivers would prefer to have Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce at full strength, rather than see Boston go into the postseason as complete underdogs. With the health of their stars in question, though, the Celtics have some of the most intriguing NBA odds in the sportsbook.
In late January, superstar Rajon Rondo, undoubtedly the Celtics’ most valuable player...
BOSTON – Kevin Garnett makes his long-awaited return to the floor Sunday evening along with Paul Pierce as the Celtics face a revamped Wizards team that has reinvented itself upon the return of John Wall. Garnett will return to the…
It seems like the Celtics have more than their share of rivalries lately.
For the past few years, the Lakers, Knicks and Heat were teams Boston always got hyped for and the matches usually ended up in a shoving match or with some serious peacocking.
Now Brooklyn can be added to that list. Everyone remembers the "brawl" back in November with Rajon Rondo and Kris Humphries...

BOSTON — Brandon Bass has seldom had a play called for him in the NBA, and that is OK with him. The soft-spoken power forward usually has very little to say about himself or his team, whether after wins or losses, 20-point performances or forgettable duds, playoff games or preseason contests.
Bass’ play spoke for itself on Sunday — rather, it spoke for his teammates. By coming...
Brandon Bass scored 20 points and the Boston Celtics, helped by the return of Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce, beat the Washington Wizards 107-96 Sunday night.
Bass missed his season high by just two points and led the Celtics with eight points in the third quarter, when they hit 75 percent of their shots, outscored Washington 31-19 and stretched a 56-52 halftime lead to 87-71.
