Kevin Garnett says he would die for the Celtics if he had to

Listen to the interview at WEEIKevin Garnett’s comments from the interview above, presented with no commentary:“Man, I would die out here if I had to, real talk. I’ve been doing this for a long time. … When I train in the summer, I train for lack of rest. My intervals are back in 30 seconds, I program my body to recover as quickly as it can. Sometimes it works, sometimes...

Kevin Garnett Has Been Key to Celtics' Success While Turning Back the Clock

If you've watched Kevin Garnett in these playoffs --especially Game 6 of the first round and Game 1 of the second round -- you'd think you had stepped into a time machine. The Celtics big man is playing like it's 2008 right now, and it's come at the opportune time for the C's. With nagging injuries to Ray Allen, Paul Pierce and Avery Bradley, Garnett has stepped...

Garnett’s Remarkable Resurgence

LL Cool J once said, “Don’t call it a come-back. I been here for years, rocking my peers and putting suckas in fear.” The same could be said for Kevin Garnett who has had a resurgence in this year’s playoffs. It’s time for the certifiably insane, chest-pounding, lockdown-defending, 6’11” big man to get the love he deserves; this time, as the best center in the NBA.

Boston Celtics: Kevin Garnett, Rajon Rondo and the TD Garden push past Sixers late

The Boston Celtics got off to their regular, slow start, in game 1. The Philadelphia 76ers came to TD Garden ready for their first semi-finals match since 2003. The Garden was rocking for opening tip, no less than any of the great Sixers/Celtics matchups, since the rivalry began in the 1960s. Unfortunately, the Celtics did [...]

Kevin Garnett Delivers Another Dominant, Needed Performance in Game 1 Win Over 76ers

BOSTON -- Kevin Garnett is not counting on getting any days off as the Celtics continue their march through the playoffs. The Celtics cannot afford to give him one. With Paul Pierce and Ray Allen battling injuries, epic performances by Garnett may need to be the norm, not the exception, for Boston. Garnett seized that responsibility in the closeout game of the first-round series...

Hawks co-owner fined for critical comments

Atlanta Hawks co-owner Michael Gearon has been fined $35,000 by the NBA for criticizing the officiating and for making disparaging remarks about Boston center Kevin Garnett. After Game 5 of the Eastern Conference playoff series between the Hawks and Celtics, Gearon called Garnett "the dirtiest guy in the league" and complained that the Celtics got more foul calls. ...

No Horsing Around: Paul Pierce is on Bronco Garnett

   DATELINE: HUMOR! Paul Pierce said it:  “We’re gonna ride Kevin Garnett all the way.” Hi-yo, Silver, away! The winning Big Ticket has become the “Rocking Horse Winner.” Not since Troy has there been such excitement over a giant gift to the fans. As we recall, there were a bunch of men inside the wooden horse, waiting for the chance to come out and show the City of...

Vogel Fined For Comments About Heat

Frank Vogel has been fined $15,000 for accusing the Heat of flopping for foul calls.

Avery Bradley, Kevin Garnett Deliver Key Plays in Celtics' Impressive Fourth Quarter Defensively

BOSTON -- There is tough, hounding defense, and then there is whatever the Celtics played in the fourth quarter on Saturday. If the Philadelphia 76ers were prepared for it, they did not look like it. Almost always a sound defensive squad, the Celtics took their defensive energy to another level down the stretch of Game 1 against the Sixers. Kevin Garnett and Avery Bradley delivered...

What will it take for Pacers to pull off improbable upset?

Frank Vogel will kill me already for calling this an upset despite his Indiana Pacers being down 1-0 in their playoff series with the Miami Heat. Undoubtedly, though to many NBA observers, a Pacers victory in their second-round matchup with the Heat would be nothing less than an upset of monumental proportions. Miami after all is the world beaters with the supposed cake-walk to the...

Your Morning Dump... Where Doc wasn't fond of the foul call

Every morning, we compile the links of the day and dump them here... highlighting the big storyline. Because there's nothing quite as satisfying as a good morning dump. No one can argue that Garnett did, in fact, clear out Andre Iguodala with his arm in an attempt to get Paul Piercefor a potential game-tying 3-pointer. The issue is whether there’s a difference between...

Celtics 92, 76ers 91

Rajon Rondo had his eighth postseason triple-double, with 13 points, 17...

Doc Rivers Explains Celtics' Late Foul, Confesses C's Wanted to Foul Earlier

BOSTON -- The Celtics actually committed two key fouls at the end of Game 2. Kevin Garnett's controversial illegal screen drew most of the attention, but a decision by the Celtics a few seconds earlier may have had just as big an impact on the outcome of Boston's 82-81 loss to the Philadelphia 76ers. In a game in which almost nothing seemed to go according to plan, the Sixers...

Comments from the other side - Sixers Game 1 5/12

First of all, happy Mother's Day to everyone who has a mother or who is a mother :)   Not sure who they hate more in this series,  KG or Lou Williams and Spencer Hawes.  Lots of hate for all 3.  Once again, it just blows my mind when they wish injury on players just because they play hard to beat them.   Tough loss for them for sure to get their hopes up all game and then...

Sixers 82, Celtics 81: The series heads to Philadelphia knotted at 1-1

When Lavoy Allen’s prayer with 0.9 seconds on the shot clock improbably banked through the rim and the refs shortly thereafter declined to call a travel after Evan Turner took approximately 19 steps, I figured this might be Philadelphia’s night.Yes, the Celtics responded with a couple threes and made a number of other important plays down the stretch, including Rajon Rondo’s...
