  1. LeBron James drives baseline, throws down on Celtics (VIDEO)

    Apr 12, 2013, 9:13 PM EDT

    Miami Heat's LeBron James returns to the court after dunking against the Boston Celtics in the first half of their NBA basketball game in Miami, Florida

    Miami Heat rolled out their big three against a Celtics team without Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce. The bottom line is Boston’s defense isn’t the same when KG isn’t patrolling the lane. So you knew the Heat would put up a lot of points. And you knew there would be plays like this, where LeBron…

    Welcome to NBA basketball the final week of the regular season.

    Apr 11, 2013, 6:29 PM EDT

    Dwyane Wade

    The Celtics may be sitting guys — Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce will be out — but the Heat will be bringing back at least one star. Dwyane Wade, who has missed the last six Heat games with a bruised kneecap, told the press he would return Friday night, reports Tim Reynolds of the Associated…

  4. Garnett, Pierce out for Celtics against Heat Friday. Are too many players getting rested?

    Apr 11, 2013, 1:18 PM EDT

    Paul Pierce, Kevin Garnett

    Should NBA stars be rested at the end of the season? It’s been a topic this year, in part because the Heat have been doing it and some fans will look for any excuse to rip the Heat. In part it’s because David Stern fined the San Antonio Spurs $250,000 earlier in the season for…

  5. Carmelo Anthony passes LeBron for top selling jersey

    New York Knicks' Anthony reacts after scoring against Miami Heat during their NBA basketball game in Miami

    LeBron James may be the best player in the NBA, but Carmelo Anthony is the biggest star on the biggest NBA stage — the scorer leading the best New York Knicks team in more than a decade — and that sells a lot of jerseys. Anthony moved past LeBron into the top spot in national…

  7. Three Stars of the Night: Luol Deng looking playoff ready

    Apr 1, 2013, 12:30 AM EDT

    Luol Deng

    Today there were some guys with really nice stat lines that just get an honorable mention. There was Paul Pierce (24 points, 15 rebounds, 5 assists), who was one of the only Celtics to show up. For the Knicks Carmelo Anthony (24 points, 10 rebounds) had a good line but it was really Raymond Felton…

  9. Three Stars of the night: Once again, LeBron tops Green

    Mar 19, 2013, 1:56 AM EDT

    Heat forward James reacts after making a basket during their NBA basketball game against the Celtics in Boston

    On a night with some big games and big lines — Stephen Curry had 30 points and just misses out — two of our three stars come from one game. One of the best, most entertaining games of the season. We couldn’t leave either of these guys off. Third Star: Wilson Chandler (35 points, 9…

    Mar 19, 2013, 12:20 AM EDT

    Celtics' Green drives to the basket past Heat's Haslem in the second half of their NBA basketball game in Boston

    This felt like a playoff game. Like last year’s Eastern Conference finals — it was chippy, there were some big highlights, and there was a very loud crowd fully into the game. It was a game that went down to the final seconds. And just like last year’s playoffs the Miami Heat beat the Boston…

  12. Heat beat Raptors to earn 22nd straight victory

    Mar 17, 2013, 3:38 PM EDT

    LeBron James;  Jonas Valanciunas

    The streak continues for the Heat. After a 108-91 road victory over the Raptors on Sunday afternoon, Miami has now won 22 consecutive games. The Heat controlled this one from very early on, leading by as many as 16 points in the first half, despite the Raptors out-rebounding them by 19 over the game’s first…

  13. Celtics not impressed by Heat’s 21-game win streak

    Mar 16, 2013, 11:30 AM EDT

    Paul Pierce, LeBron James

    The Heat won their 21st straight game on Friday in Milwaukee, and while there’s no easily predictable end to the winning on the Miami horizon, at least one team isn’t lining up to fawn over the defending champs. The Celtics are in the seventh spot in the Eastern Conference playoff picture, and are just a…

  14. Kevin Garnett, Paul Pierce reach scoring milestones in win

    Mar 14, 2013, 10:24 AM EDT

    Boston Celtics center Kevin Garnett (L) and Celtics forward Paul Pierce watch the scoreboard video screen from the sidelines in the second half of their NBA basketball game against the Toronto Raptors in Boston

    It was a night to talk history. Not just NBA history but the personal histories that tie two legendary current Celtics — Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett — together. And there is no better place to talk NBA history than the Boston Garden. Wednesday night Kevin Garnett scored a dozen points and moved past “The…

  17. Celtics will rest Paul Pierce Tuesday night vs. Bobcats

    Mar 12, 2013, 6:24 PM EDT

    Paul Pierce

    Doc Rivers has talked about getting his key players some rest down the stretch, something he has done in seasons past. Tuesday night it will be Paul Pierce’s turn, reports A. Sherrod Blakely at CSNNE.com. Pierce will sit out vs. the Bobcats, likely meaning the Celtics will lean heavily on Jeff Green. Pierce has started…

  20. Report: Celtics were closer than you think to trading Paul Pierce

    Mar 8, 2013, 5:04 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Boston Celtics

    The idea of Paul Pierce in an Dallas Mavericks uniform just seems… wrong. Yet apparently it was closer to happening than we knew. Celtics GM Danny Ainge was listening to offers and talking about maybe blowing up Boston and restarting, but the conventional wisdom was he wouldn’t go through with it. But he almost did,…

  21. Jeff Green hits game-winning layup, completes Celtics improbable comeback (VIDEO)

    Mar 7, 2013, 12:32 AM EDT

    Jeff Green

    With a little over four minutes left in this game, the Pacers were up nine and seemingly in control of this game. But that Jeff Green layup with .05 on the clock capped an 11-0 Celtics run to win the game 83-81. It’s a play that happened because everyone on the planet expected Kevin Garnett…

  23. Pierce says he’s just going to have to play through neck pain

    Feb 28, 2013, 1:06 PM EDT

    Paul Pierce

    Paul Pierce has a pinched nerve in his neck. So yes, that hurts. The hope is that the Celtics mini-vacation from the schedule makers — after their Monday win over Utah the only other game for a week is Friday against the Warriors (Avery Bradley on Stephen Curry should be fun) — would help Pierce’s…

  25. Three Stars of the Night: Old Man for Rivers

    Feb 26, 2013, 12:43 AM EDT

    Paul Pierce, DeMarre Carroll

    The Celtics were already pretty old to start the season. When Rajon Rondo tore his ACL, they got older. When rookie forward Jared Sullinger went out for the season, they were about as young as a men’s rec league team. Older doesn’t necessarily mean worse, of course. Doc Rivers called it when the injuries happened…
