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....

Erden is activated, Harangody sits

Rookie Semih Erden was activated by the Celtics before Tuesday night's game with the Heat, while Luke Harangody was relegated to the inactive list along with Avery Bradley and Kendrick Perkins. The Celtics will only have 11 players in uniform while Delonte West sits out with a 10-game suspension.

 

Erden injured his shoulder in practice and was questionable, but his size could be an asset against the Heat.

Ainge: LeBron 'had the right' to pick Heat
By: DJ Bean

Danny Ainge made his weekly appearance on The Big Show on Tuesday, discussing the Celtics' coming season and their perceived biggest Eastern Conference competition in the Miami Heat. The Celtics and Heat tip off in the season-opener Tuesday night at the Garden.

 

"It's a big game for the league," Ainge said. "It's a good game for the league, it's a good game for Miami, it's a good game for us. … I think it's as good as it gets."

 

Regarding the Heat, who famously loaded up on talent by re-signing Dwyane Wade and adding top free agents in Chris Bosh and LeBron James, Ainge said that the "door is open" for teams to maneuver their way towards forming super-squads. James was criticized by many in the offseason for the ESPN hour-long special, "The Decision" and his choice to not notify the Cavaliers, the team with whom he had played his entire career, that he was leaving for Miami...
