Doc on no KG: 'We pay everybody' to play

Playing their first game since Kevin Garnett injured his right calf and without Rajon Rondo and his injured ankle, Doc Rivers said his team shouldn't feel "good" about staying close in the 83-81 loss to the Hornets. 

 

"We can't let it get to us. We're not going to be healthy the next game," Rivers said. "I told the guys, 'I'm angry. We should've won the game. Don't sit back and feel good, you lost by lost the game by two because you have three starters out or whatever. It doesn't make me feel any good.'

 

"We pay everybody and so we've got to come up and play." 

 

Luke Harangody played 13 minutes and Jermaine O'Neal played 33 minutes - including a stretch of 16 minutes in the second half - as Shaquille O'Neal again battled foul trouble. For more, visit the Celtics team page at weei.com/celtics

Doc on Baby: Too much 'hero ball'

Doc Rivers was livid at Glen Davis in the closing moments of Friday's 83-81 loss to the New Orleans Hornets for taking an ill-advised 3-pointer with less than a minute remaining and the Celtics trailing, 82-79. Afterward, Rivers explained why he was so upset.

 

"Yeah, we had some hero ball, there's no doubt about that," Rivers said. "And you lose when you do that. So, we lost." 

 

Also contributing to the lost - a game the Celtics led by seven with 6:27 remaining - were 19 turnovers leading to 25 Hornets points. For more, visit the Celtics team page at weei.com/celtics.

Paul: Not big difference with Rondo, Nate

Speaking after his team's 83-81 win over the Celtics, Friday at TD Garden, New Orleans point guard explained that he didn't know prior to the game if Rajon Rondo would be in the starting lineup for the Celts, and that it wouldn't have changed his mind-set.

 

"It didn't matter to me," said Paul, who finished with 20 points and 11 assists. "I'm one of those guys who think with the Celtics ... there's Rondo or Nate Robinson, there ain't that much of a difference. Nate Robinson is a starter in our league coming off their bench. Their first nine guys are starters."

 

Robinson played 37 minutes for the Celtics, scoring 11 points on 5-for-10 shooting from the floor. He dished out three assists.

 

"I guess I'm in one of those situations where every night I go out I know I'm going to get the other guy's best shot," said Paul, who now heads to Washington to take on the Wizards. "I...

New Year's Eve party crashers: C's fall

The Hornets overcame an seven-point, fourth-quarter deficit and a 18-0 run by the Celtics to grind out a 83-81 win in a New Year's Eve matinee at TD Garden. Ray Allen missed an off-balance three-pointer with five seconds remaining that would have given the Celtics the win. Trevor Ariza hit a go-ahead three-pointer with 1:34 left to put the Hornets up for good, 80-77. It was the first full game the Celtics played this season without Kevin Garnett, out for two weeks with a strained right calf. 

 

Allen electrified the sellout crowd with consecutive three-pointers in an 18-0 fourth quarter run that put the Celtics up 73-66 with under nine minutes remaining. But Chris Paul, with 20 points led the Hornets back. 

 

With Garnett out and Rajon Rondo still unable to play, the Celtics relied on Paul Pierce and Shaquille O'Neal to pick up the slack early. The Hornets - behind Paul and Emeka Okafor - took advantage...
