KG on Villanueva: 'He's a nobody'

Kevin Garnett said he is tired of talking about his run-in with Detroit's Charlie Villanueva on Tuesday in Boston's win over the Pistons. Villanueva accused Garnett, via twitter, of calling him a cancer patient during a trash-talking session on the court. Garnett spent Wednesday trying to diffuse the situation, claiming there was a misunderstanding and he simply called the Pistons big man a 'cancer' to his team and the NBA. 

 

Friday, Garnett said he's done talking about it.

 

"He's a nobody," Garnett said. "I'm not paying attention to nobodies anymore."

 

It has been quite the emotional week for Garnett, who also got into a shoving match with Andrew Bogut the next night in a home-court win over Milwaukee.

Doc Rivers: Rondo has 'mild' plantar fascitis

Celtics coach Doc Rivers said his head trainer told him hours before Friday's tip-off that Rajon Rondo wouldn't be available to the team in their game against Chicago because of lingering soreness in his left foot. 

 

"[Friday] morning, Eddie [Lacerte] told me that Rondo wasn’t playing because of his foot," Rivers said after Friday's overtime game in which Rondo played 41 minutes, scored 10 points and dished out 11 assists. "And ten minutes later I go down so we can watch film and Rondo said, ‘I’m playing; I’m fine.’"

 

Asked if Rondo was dealing with plantar fascitis, Rivers said, "I think that's what it is, and it's a mild case but when those get fired up, those are extremely painful."

 

Rondo took treatment for 30 minutes after the game and then said he has been dealing with pain in both feet, with more pain in his left foot. He also said...

Working OT again: C's beat Thibs, Bulls

In a game that was a throwback to the first round of the 2009 playoffs, the Celtics had a fierce battle with the Bulls, coming out on top, 110-105, in overtime. Ray Allen led the way with 25 points on 9-of-12 shooting while Kevin Garnett added 16. Glen Davis chipped in with 15 off the bench for the Celtics, who won their fourth straight and spoiled the return of former Celtics assistant Tom Thibodeau as Bulls head coach. 

 

The Celtics used a 22-3 run to erase a 23-19 deficit and build 15-point second quarter lead. Boston also led by as many as 16 early in the third quarter before the Bulls turned it on. Trailing 72-64 after three quarters, the Bulls went on a 20-9 run to take an 84-81 lead with 5:12 left on a Joakim Noah jumper. The Celtics jumped back out ahead by six but consecutive threes by Luol Deng knotted the game at 96.

Bruins shock Caps but lose a wild one
By: DJ Bean

The Bruins woke up big time in the third period in Washington and rallied to nearly steal a point or two in a game in which they were left for dead on Friday night. Ultimately, it was locally born John Carlson who did the Bruins in as the Capitals escaped the game with a 5-3 victory. 

 

The Bruins were offensively nonexistent through the first two periods, putting just nine shots on Washington netminder Michal Neuvirth, all of which the 22-year-old stooped. The Capitals, on the other hand, were able to to put three past Tim Thomas, who for the first time this season was pulled from a game. 

 

With the Bruins down, 3-0, entering the third, the team rallied with Tuukka Rask in net and had goals from Michael Ryder, Nathan Horton, and Shawn Thornton to tie the game and chase Neuvirth, who ended the night with just 11 saves on 14 shots. Carlson negated the sting of the Bruins' rally when he beat Tuukka Rask from the...

Scalabrine: 'Villanueva broke a code'

Brian Scalabrine backed his former teammate Kevin Garnett and said that Charlie Villanueva should not have said anything publicly about what happens on the court. "I believe that Villanuvea broke a code that should have never been broke," Scalabrine said. "What was said out there stays out there. I would never go to you guys and say the stuff that KG’s going to say to me tonight. Good or bad." 

 

This was Scalabrine's first game back in Boston since signing with Chicago. He said that his time in Boston was the best of his career. "The last few years have been the [most fun] time I’ve ever had in basketball," he said. "I learned the most and grew the most as a person in those three years. It changed my life so much. My kids will take advantage of it as well as their children. There’s way you should live life and way you should not make excuses and go out and work hard and be respectful...
