  1. Winderman: Will coaches pick four Celtics for Eastern All-Star reserves?

    Jan 27, 2011, 3:48 PM EST

    Orlando Magic v Boston Celtics, Game 6

    Thursday night merely is the show. No actual work is involved, as the results of fan balloting for All-Star starters are revealed. Then conference coaches take over from there, having to fill out ballot for the seven reserves in each conference (Commissioner David Stern selects replacements for any injured players). This year, it will be…

  2. Celtics’ Glen Davis is just fine coming off the bench

    Jan 21, 2011, 4:48 PM EST

    Houston Rockets v Boston Celtics

    Glen Davis loves being a Celtic. Loves that he is a key contributor to a contending team. Loves coming off the bench. But when Kevin Garnett was out recently, Davis stepped into the starting role — and struggled. He admitted to Paul Flannery at WEEI that once he moved in with the first five he…

  3. Magic GM on Celtics: “They act tough. They’re not really tough.”

    Jan 19, 2011, 11:36 AM EST

    Boston Celtics v Charlotte Bobcats

    To borrow a line from Inigo in The Princess Bride, “You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means.” The word of the day is tough. As in who is tough in the NBA? Magic General Manager Otis Smith does not think the Boston Celtics qualify, as he…

  4. Video: Kevin Garnett saves the day

    Jan 18, 2011, 8:43 AM EST

    Kevin Garnett

    It was a fitting end to the Celtics and Magic — if Kevin Garnett had not been back in this game, the Celtics would not have won. Less for any specific play he made than the different, more intense energy the Celtics have when he is on the court. This was the best game of…

  5. Baseline to Baseline recaps: The Martin Luther King Day games

    Jan 18, 2011, 8:33 AM EST

    Ray Allen

    What you missed while listening to the “I have a Dream” speech… The Lakers defeating the Thunder in a contest that looked a lot like last-year’s playoffs was our game of the night. Celtics 109, Magic 106: Kevin Garnett is back. Is he ever. It was a full slate of 13 NBA games Monday and…

  6. Garnett says Celtics should learn lesson from Patriots loss

    Jan 17, 2011, 2:57 PM EST

    Orlando Magic v Boston Celtics, Game 4

    You’d think fine people in Boston would be used to losing sporting events to teams from New York by now. But apparently not as most of New England is in stunned silence about the Patriots loss to the loudmouth New York Jets on Saturday. Kevin Garnett, writing on his blog in China (for his shoe…

  7. Kevin Garnett set to return Monday against Magic

    Jan 16, 2011, 6:30 PM EST

    Boston Celtics v Orlando Magic

    The Celtics have been struggling without their defensive and emotional leader, Kevin Garnett, since he was sidelined with a calf injury (which looked a lot worse at first glance). Garnett provides them offensive balance in the post as well as his patented defensive lunacy. He’s been expected back for about a week now, but of…

  8. Why did Stoudemire get so many All-Star votes? NY star power.

    Jan 13, 2011, 10:00 PM EST

    Amar'e Stoudemire

    There are a lot of perks to being the star of the New York Knicks. For one, every game you get to see what Clyde Frazier is wearing up close. You get to hang with Spike Lee and ask him to explain why he made “She Hate Me.” You probably never pay for a slice…

  9. Fans send Rajon Rondo, Kevin Garnett to bench in latest All-Star balloting

    Jan 13, 2011, 1:45 PM EST

    Boston Celtics v Detroit Pistons, Game 6

    Apparently Boston sports fans have been so focused on what Tom Brady is going to do to the Jets secondary they forgot to vote for the NBA All-Star Game starters. How else do you explain the latest release of NBA All-Star voting which drops two Celtics from the starting lineup? Chicago’s Derrick Rose has leapfrogged…

  10. Kevin Garnett out Wednesday, likely Friday as well

    Jan 12, 2011, 11:03 PM EST

    Garnett injured

    This was the week that Kevin Garnett was expected back from the calf injury that sidelined him two weeks ago. But we all know the overly-cautious MO of the Celtics when it comes to injuries in the regular season, so we should have expected it might take longer. Along those lines, Garnett did not suit…

  11. Heat take over top spot in East, Celtics should be worried

    Jan 11, 2011, 9:40 AM EST

    San Antonio Spurs v Boston Celtics

    Last season it was all about Boston being healthy. Doc Rivers sacrificed games — Boston was 11-11 in their last 22 — to get healthy and have players rested for the playoffs. Boston fell to the four seed, but Rivers got the physically ready veteran team he wanted. They came within a quarter of getting…

  12. Garnett questionable for Monday, blogs about frustrations

    Jan 10, 2011, 12:01 PM EST

    Garnett injured

    Boston is one of the few teams playing on Monday night, with the NBA not scheduling much against the BCS championship game. Actually, Boston hopes that its game against Houston is lower scoring than Auburn vs. Oregon. Kevin Garnett did not go through shootaround Monday morning. While he is still officially questionable for Monday’s game,…

  13. Celtics’ Garnett could be back Monday; Perkins three weeks away

    Jan 7, 2011, 8:45 PM EST

    Kevin Garnett

    Doc Rivers had all sorts of good news for Celtics fans in his pregame press conference on Friday night before his team took on the Raptors. The first, slid in to his comments almost casually, is that Kevin Garnett could be back from his calf injury on Monday. That would fit with the two-week timetable…

  14. Latest All-Star voting has Amar’e Stoudemire, Derrick Rose on the bench

    Jan 6, 2011, 1:50 PM EST

    Stoudemire_frustrated

    What is the matter with New York? And what about you, Chicago? Not enough passion and votes there to push the very deserving Amar’e Stoudemire and Derrick Rose into All-Star Game starting spots in the Eastern Conference? Well, it’s not that simple, as they would have to unseat two popular Boston stars to get the…

  15. Steve Nash leaves Nike to sign with Chinese brand Luyou

    Jan 6, 2011, 1:18 PM EST

    Steve Nash

    It’s not every day you see a major NBA star leaving Nike. But that’s just what Steve Nash has done, in a story found by Counterkicks (via SLAM). Nike confirmed in a statement that Nash has left them, ending a 15-year relationship between the two. Nash now is with Chinese brand Luyou. But Nash is…

  16. Kevin Garnett back on court shooting

    Jan 5, 2011, 2:30 PM EST

    Garnett injured

    Kevin Garnett will not be on the court when the Celtics take on the Spurs Wednesday at the TD Garden. Not that we should be reading much into January games in the first place, but that really squashes any thoughts of “the two best teams battle” giving us much to chew on. But Garnett is…

  17. Rondo expected to play today against New Orleans…or not

    Dec 31, 2010, 3:05 PM EST

    Rajon Rondo

    Nate Robinson has performed admirably during his temporary gig as the Celtics’ starting point guard, but it’s time for a return to normalcy in Boston. According to the team’s twitter account, Rajon Rondo is “expected” to play in today’s game against the Hornets, giving the Garnett-less Celtics a needed boost. Apparently no one told Doc…

  18. Kevin Garnett has calf strain, out only a couple weeks

    Dec 30, 2010, 5:56 PM EST

    Garnett injured

    UPDATE 5:56 pm: Via the Celtics Web site, here are the quotes from Danny Ainge on the injury. “Kevin had an MRI and a thorough examination (on Thursday) and it’s the same as last night,” said Ainge. “It’s just a muscle – I say just – but it’s a muscle injury, a strained calf. It’s…

  19. Kobe Bryant still leads everyone in All-Star voting

    Dec 30, 2010, 1:47 PM EST

    Miami Heat v Los Angeles Lakers

    With his worldwide popularity — he sells more jerseys in China than Yao Ming — it shouldn’t be a shock that Kobe Bryant is on top of the NBA’s All-Star balloting. The second round of released vote totals has Bryant with 1,153,694, well ahead of second place overall and Eastern Conference leader Dwight Howard (988,572).…

  20. While we wait for an MRI, Doc Rivers speaks on Garnett

    Dec 30, 2010, 10:25 AM EST

    Garnett injured

    There will be no real Kevin Garnett injury news until the results of the MRI are release later today, but we are not a patient people. Celtics coach Doc Rivers was on WEEI’s Dennis and Callahan Morning Show and talked about KG, which the brilliant Celtics Blog transcribed for the rest of us. “Well, I…

  21. Kevin Garnett leaves game with right calf injury

    Dec 29, 2010, 11:18 PM EST

    Kevin Garnett

    UPDATE #3 11:18 pm: Here is a post-game quote from Doc Rivers on Garnett, via the Associated Press: “It is a muscle injury, not a knee,” Boston coach Doc Rivers said. “You always worry when a guy goes down without anyone around him, because those always seem to be severe injuries, so that was the…

  22. Dwight Howard mocks LeBron with fake chalk toss in Cleveland

    Dec 29, 2010, 8:10 AM EST

    howardface

    The Orlando Magic were in Cleveland Tuesday night and Dwight Howard played to the crowd a little before the game by mocking LeBron James‘ famed pregame chalk toss (which LeBron borrowed from Garnett who got it from MJ, but that’s another story). Well, maybe not mocking, but it wasn’t a loving tribute. Before the game…

  23. Boston still beasts of the East (and they’re enjoying it)

    Dec 22, 2010, 6:22 PM EST

    Miami Heat v Boston Celtics

    Why did the Orlando Magic dramatically reshuffle their roster last weekend? The Celtics. Orlando’s brain trust realized their current roster was not going to beat Boston come May. The Celtics knocked the Magic out of the playoffs last season and this season that gap widened. Orlando had to do something — and in doing so…

  24. Tyson Chandler is to Dallas as Kevin Garnett is to Boston? Dirk says true.

    Dec 20, 2010, 6:20 PM EST

    tchandler_Mavs

    Last season, 26 games into the season, Dallas was 19-7 and it went on to a 55-win season. This season their offensive production is almost identical, but the Mavs look like a different, better team. One you might really be scared of come the playoffs. They are 21-5 heading into a showdown with a rejuvenated…

  25. Usual suspects lead early All-Star balloting

    Dec 16, 2010, 3:03 PM EST

    Los Angeles Lakers v Sacramento Kings

    Results from the first few weeks of All-Star balloting are in and… well, it’s exactly what you’d expect. Pretty boring stuff, really. Lots of Heat, Celtics, Lakers and Chinese voters. For the Eastern Conference, LeBron James would start at forward in the East with Kevin Garnett (Amar’e Stoudemire is third among East forwards), the guards…
