Garnett: 'Are we in the finals already?'

Now that it's over, the Celtics could concede that this was no ordinary opening night. As Kevin Garnett walked to the podium in the room usually reserved for games deep in the playoffs he turned to Paul Pierce and said, "Are we in the finals already?"

 

"It did have a lot of hype on it," Garnett continued. "A lot of good personnel on both teams, a lot of outstanding personnel. You could tell both teams were a bit rusty. You could tell there was a lot of hype, a lot of anticipation with this game."

 

Garnett conceded that the Celtics have a long way to go, but overall he was satisfied with his team's effort and he will definitely take the result. "Good game," he said. "I thought we played solid in spurts, but for the most part I think we have a lot of room to get better. But overall a win is a win and I'll take it."

LeBron: 'Rome wasn't built in one day'

BOSTON - LeBron James spoke to the media following his first game as a member of the Miami Heat, an 88-80 loss to the Celtics on Tuesday at the TD Garden. James, who led all scorers with 31 points (21 in the second half), was asked about his team's performance against the defending Eastern Conference champions.

 

"This is a work in progress," said James, who also committed a game-high eight turnovers. "We all feel like, you know, Rome wasn't built in one day. It's going to take time and we understand that. We just have to keep making progress every day."

Fired up: Celtics beat Lebron, Heat

Ray Allen led the offense with 20 points and drilled a clutch jumper late while Rajon Rondo dished out 17 assists as the Celtics played smothering defense to spoil the highly anticipated debut of LeBron James with the Miami Heat. The Celtics won, 88-80, Tuesday night at TD Garden in the NBA season opener. James scored 21 second-half points and finished with a game-high 31 points while Dwyane Wade had 13 and Chris Bosh added eight points and eight boards for the Heat. 

 

Paul Pierce overcame a bruised lower back and back spasms to post 19 points while drawing the defensive assignment on James all night. The responsibility proved punishing, as Pierce attempted to draw a charge with just under four minutes left in the third quarter and fell hard to the ground. He left the game holding his back and went to the locker room for treatment. 

 

He returned early in the fourth, however, and hit a pair of key 3-pointers to...

Grousbeck: NBA fines for Rondo headband

Celtics co-owner Wyc Grousbeck, during a Monday morning appearance on WAAF's Hill-Man in the Morning Show, said that C's point guard Rajon Rondo has stopped wearing his headband this season after the NBA threatened to fine him for sporting the league's logo upside-down.

 

"He’s not going to have it on. He used to wear it upside-down, as a real connoisseur would know and I’m sure you noticed, he had an upside-down logo, turning the NBA upside-down. And they won’t let him do it anymore. They said they were going to fine him for that," said Grousbeck. "So he said, 'To heck with you, I’m not going to fine it at all.' That’s the Rondo headband situation for you connoisseurs of men’s accessories."

 

Grousbeck also discussed the state of the Celtics entering the season, as well as his feelings about the Heat, LeBron James and basketball commentator Jeff Van Gundy. To...

Perkins eyes late January return

If Kendrick Perkins had a choice he would have tried to play opening night, but it's not his call and so he is resigned to making the most out of his current situation while he rehabs from knee surgery. Perkins is down 10 pounds to 271 (he'd like to lose 10 more) and has made it a goal to make 300 free throws every day. He doesn't know a firm date yet for his return, but he said his goal is to be back by late January.

 

Perkins has been working to strengthen the muscles areound his knee with squats and other leg exercises. He said his rehab was more of a mental test than anything. "It depends what kind of person you are," Perkins said. "If you're a mentally strong person, you can get through it."

 

Perkins also said that he wasn't threatened by the presence of Shaquille and Jermaine O'Neal. "I can't bring what they bring to the table and they can't bring what I bring to the table," he said....
