Kevin Garnett requires five stitches on chin

Celtics forward Kevin Garnett missed five minutes in the third quarter when team doctors had trouble closing up a wound under his chin that required five stitches. He took an elbow from Portland point guard Andre Miller that resulted in his departure from the game at the 7:47 mark. It was not until there was 2:24 left in the third quarter that Garnett got back on the court.

 

For the Celtics, the absence of Garnett seemed interminable. Coach Doc Rivers felt as if it was a road game while Celtics trainers worked with Garnett's wound.

 

"Whoever did our stitches, we’re going to have a talk," Rivers joked. "That was the longest [wait]. I thought we were on the road. That’s what the opposing doctors do. They can’t find the sutures, they take their time."

 

But Garnett did return, and he made his presence felt. Garnett helped the Celtics close the third quarter on a 13-4...

Doc: Rondo, Nate injuries 'creeping up'

The Celtics have the best record in the Eastern Conference at 14-4 following their win over the Trail Blazers Wednesday night at TD Garden. But that great record is coming with a price - nagging injuries. 

 

Coach Doc Rivers said after the game Wednesday that Rajon Rondo's strained left hamstring, which Rivers thought was no longer an issue early in the week, started to get sore in the fourth quarter. Then Rivers said that back-up point Nate Robinson has an aching right foot which was bothering him. And making matters worse Wednesday, the Celtics lost Kevin Garnett for over five minutes in the third quarter when team doctors had trouble closing up a wound under his chin that required five stitches. 

 

"I left Rondo in because Nate's foot was hurting," Rivers said. "Rondo's hamstring was starting to get sore and he was worried that if he came out he couldn't return. So, the injury thing is really...

On fire: Pierce, Davis, KG lead C's to victory

Paul Pierce scored a game-high 28 points, drilling 9-of-11 shots from the floor, including all four from 3-point range, while Glen Davis was 7-of-9 and finished with 16 off the bench as the Celtics barely won their fifth straight, 99-95, over the Portland Trail Blazers at TD Garden. The Celtics led, 96-80, with 5:22 left on a Kevin Garnett turnaround. The Blazers went on a 15-0 run, only to fall short as Ray Allen drilled a 3-pointer from the left baseline to seal the win with 10.7 seconds left. 

 

Garnett took a hit to the face but returned late in the third quarter to help spark a 13-4 spurt that gave the Celtics the lead for good. Garnett's 3-pointer just before the buzzer gave the Celtics a 79-72 lead heading into the fourth quarter. The Celtics trailed by as many as 11 in the second quarter before turning up the defensive intensity.

Thomas gets 5th shutout, B's top Philly
By: DJ Bean

It didn't advance them to the Eastern Conference finals, but the Bruins beat the Flyers, 3-0, in Philadelphia on Wednesday. Patrice Bergeron and Tyler Seguin had goals in the first period, while Milan Lucic added an empty-netter to put the nail in the coffin. Tim Thomas turned in 41 saves for his league-leading fifth shutout of the season. 

 

The Bruins won in a rather flashy manner, receiving sprawling saves from Thomas and Tyler Seguin's latest eye-candy goal, a top-shelf tally on Flyers' goaltender Sergei Bobrovsky. Thomas also stopped Flyers winger Scott Hartnell on a penalty shot in the second period. 

 

With five shutouts, Thomas tied his career high, which he had reached in each of the last two seasons. 

 

The Bruins will return to TD Garden on Thursday night, where they will face Steven Stamkos and the Tampa Bay Lightning.

Jackson, Paris lift BC over Indiana

Reggie Jackson scored a game-high 27 points and Boston College turned away Indiana, 88-76, Wednesday night at Conte Forum to remain undefeated in the ACC-Big Ten Challenge.

 

Biko Paris added 19 points for the Eagles (5-2), who never trailed in the game. BC led by 14 points at the half, 43-29. Indiana (6-1) chipped away in the second half and twice drew within a point. Both times, the Eagles answered with 3-pointers, first by freshman Danny Rubin (10 points) with 6:50 remaining, then by Paris with 5:24 remaining.

 

Center Josh Southern made a few nice plays down the stretch, including an assist to Paris on a back-door layup with 2:43 remaining that got the lead back to double figures at 75-64. He also found Rubin open for a 3-pointer with 2:05 left and grabbed an offensive rebound on a missed free throw with 1:38 left.

 

Both teams shot the ball well, with BC finishing at 52 percent and Indian just over 50...
