Because there’s nothing quite as satisfying as a good morning dump. “We’ve got to play through Kevin a lot more,” Pierce said yesterday at the team hotel. “He’s one of our best passers. I mean he’s one of the most unselfish players, so we have to do a better job of getting him the ball, a lot more than he got it yesterday. “Doc said he wants Kevin to be aggressive, he wants him to take 20 shots, but even when we run plays for Kevin, he’s so responsible that he’s going to find the open man and be responsible with the ball. He usually ends up getting four or five assists. So we have to do a better job of involving him because he’s good at doing a lot of playmaking duties.” Herald: Celtics hope to get Kevin Garnett more involved “We were trying to get the ball to Kevin,” Rivers said afterward. “I think we threw three passes from halfcourt to the post.

Comments from the Other Side - Knicks 4/20

The Knicks fans are right up there with the Heat and Lakers fans for being bandwagon fans and also classless.  I'm glad that Melo at least called them out for booing Pierce when he was giving a tribute to the bombing victims.   Seeing them complain so much about the officiating when they were calling the game fairly evenly,  missing calls both ways but not as bad as they...
