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.
If Celtics coach Doc Rivers elected to give Pierce and Garnett a night off when the team travels to Charlotte for the tail end of a back-to-back on Monday, he could be forgiven (heck, with no national TV broadcast, the league might not even make the team pay for it). As Boston prepped to board its midnight flight, Rivers was noncommittal about how he’ll proceed.
“I’ll let you know after the game [Monday],” Rivers said. “I mean Paul played 54 minutes, and he’s the guy that I’m most concerned with to be honest. And they just played so hard. … If we have to rest guys, play them shorter minutes tomorrow — the only way I can do it is by my eyes. You’ll never know how guys feel until [Monday].”

Paul Pierce wasn't picked as a reserve for the 2013 All-Star game, nor was he picked as a replacement to fill Rajon Rondo's vacant spot. This despite the fact that Pierce's numbers are remarkably similar to his his stats in previous All-Star seasons. Pierce has been on fire lately (A couple huge triple doubles included) and it appears there might be an All-Star roster...
Forget about the shroud of uncertainty surrounding the Boston Celtics thanks to trade rumors and injury concerns circulating this season. It seems as though the veteran ball club has done everything in their power to stave off the doubt and not only maintain their legitimacy in the Eastern Conference, but improve their NBA odds in the process.
With a five-game West Coast swing on...

8 a.m. ET: Kevin Garnett will be the only Celtics player on the court this weekend, and no, that’s not because he will be the only one still healthy. Garnett is the Celtics’ lone representative at All-Star weekend this year, as Rajon Rondo, who was due to start at point guard for the East, is out with a torn ACL in his right knee and Paul Pierce was left off the roster.
Kevin Garnett has never been one to hold his tongue on the court. Known widely for his explicit language, Garnett makes it clear that he will never change that aspect of his on the court game. So now we have this video courtesy of The Big Lead. Check out the interesting commentary KG had after blocking a shot.
Kevin Garnett hasn’t been shy on his feelings towards Dwight Howard these days. Just over the summer he called Howard a clown, turns out Garnett’s loathing for the fellow Super Star player goes deeper.

After the ACL tear of point guard Rajon Rondo, many stuck a fork into the Boston Celtics season. With aging stars up and down the roster, many assumed the Celtics should start trying to trade some assets for young pieces and the future. Forward Kevin Garnett has found himself in the midst of numerous [...]
BOSTON — Andre Miller, a veteran of 14 seasons and more than a thousand games in the NBA, summed it up best.
“I think everybody played like they wanted to go home,” he said.
Miller and the Nuggets came out on the losing end of a triple-overtime battle on Sunday in the battle of the two hottest teams in the NBA. The Celtics’ survived, extending their win streak to seven games...
Paul Pierce and the Celtics have had a chance to show their toughness with Rondo out
The Boston Celtics won their seventh straight game Sunday, this one a triple overtime epic against the Denver Nuggets. It was another bar fight for a Celtics team that has become accustomed to them over the past two seasons. Even in the wake of that game, the major national story remains the same...
CHARLOTTE, N.C - Heading into Time Warner Cable Arena Monday night, the Boston Celtics were as hot as any team in the league with seven straight wins, handing the Heat, Clippers, Nuggets and Lakers all losses during that stretch.
Who'd have thought it'd be the lowly Charlotte Bobcats, the bunch with the worst record in the NBA, that would cool them off?
As if a blown four...
Clearly, that was how the winning streak was meant to end, at the hands of the Charlotte Bobcats, with Byron Mullens feigning dominance, after a final-minute four-point lead disappeared and Ramon Sessions hit a game-winning jumper and Paul Pierce — who clearly, in all his OG-ness, would have drilled that 3-pointer Sunday night — came up short while Avery Bradley missed Boston’s...
The Celtics needed three overtimes, but managed to get their seventh win in a row, with a 118-114 victory over the Denver Nuggets at the TD Garden. Denver had come into the game having won nine in a row themselves.
The Celtics were paced by the “old” guys, Paul Pierce, Kevin Garnett and Jason Terry, who all logged big minutes, and the Celtics play on the road in Charlotte tonight...
The New York Post is reporting that Carmelo Anthony had an uncomfortable experience as he entered the Target Center last night for the Knicks vs Timberwolves game.
A crazy fan reportedly was able to sneak by Target Center security, and followed Melo from the team bus all the way to the lockerroom, screaming at Melo in regards to Kevin Garnett.
The fan snuck by security when the Knicks...
