The Boston Celtics should wake up tomorrow morning with a few regrets. Kevin Garnett missed a wide open layup during crunch time. So did Paul Pierce. Courtney Lee airballed a wide open three. Rajon Rondo missed a shot to end regulation and couldn’t get his footing when he had a chance to steal a win on the final play of overtime.The Celtics also did a few really good things down the stretch — the pick-and-roll that allowed Garnett to tie the game in regulation was delicious, as was the defense to snuff out Philadelphia’s final possession of regulation; also, I’m not sure you noticed, but Jeff Green was pretty damn good — but just not consistently enough to earn a win. Evan Turner, who, without checking stats, seems to average 497 points per game against the Celtics, drilled the game-winner.

Kevin Garnett thinks it’s f—ing bulls— he was not credited with rebound (Video)

Kevin Garnett has been one of the NBA’s best rebounders his entire career. In fact, he had a streak of recording at least one rebound in every game he played since January 21, 1997. But on Saturday, that streak came to an end when he failed to grab a rebound in the Boston Celtics’ 92-79 win over the Philadelphia 76ers. The Celtics may have won the game, but Garnett was not happy...

Kevin Garnett Must Break His Instinct to Be Unselfish on Offense as Celtics Become More Careful With His Playing Time

BOSTON — Kevin Garnett said he was not doing anything differently, that his attention was still on his defense first and foremost while he took his offense as it came within the flow of the game.

Regret and disapointment in Boston Celtics loss

Paul Pierce and the Celtics were losers on Friday night Rajon Rondo had a triple-double by the time the third quarter was over, but you would not have been able to tell from his post-game comments. “I should have took the layup,” said Rondo after he missed a game-winning opportunity slipping while taking a jump-shot. “I tried to make a plant and just slipped.” As an aside...

Did Doc calling the Celtics soft help light a fire underneath them?

It's been eight days, and three games, since Doc Rivers called his team soft following their rather embarrassing loss at home against the Nets. Since then the team is 2-1, beating the Blazers by 18, losing in Milwaukee by 3 (both of these games without Rajon Rondo) and then beating the Timberwolves by 10 last night.
