Wally Szczerbiak, who played six-plus seasons with Kevin Garnett on the Timberwolves and briefly played for the Celtics as part of his 10-year career, did not pull any punches in his criticism of the Big Ticket on Wednesday night. Despite Garnett's stellar performance this postseason -- including 18 points and eight rebounds in Wednesday night's Game 2 loss -- Szczerbiak, now a CBS Sports analyst, pointed to Garnett's late-game struggles in a series of tweets.
Wrote Szczerbiak as Garnett was missing five of his last six shots: KG is another one who lacks the #clutchgene always has!
Late in the game he added: KG never takes big shot for #Celtics now he's fourth in line behind Pierce Allen and Rondo to take clutch shot. Warrior all game though!!
And following the game: KG was a warrior all game but in OT he was horrible on both ends of the floor tonight!!

Rajon Rondo became the first player in the long, illustrious history of the Celtics to score at least 40 points and dish out at least 10 assists in a playoff game, but his mood and the mood of the team was tempered after a 115-111 loss to the Heat Wednesday night that put the Celtics in a 2-0 hole in the Eastern Conference finals. Rondo finished with 44 points, 10 assists and was just two rebounds shy of his fourth triple-double of this playoff season.
"It's kind of irrelevant," Rondo said. "We lost. It's as simple as that."
Rondo had three steals and just three turnovers, remarkable considering the point guard played all 53 minutes of the epic playoff contest. He became just the eighth player in NBA history to play all 53 minutes of a playoff game. But Rondo maintained that he was not tired in the late stages of the game.
"I felt fine," Rondo said. "It was a mental grind for me, individually,...
Doc Rivers attempted to hide his frustration with the discrepancy in the fouls Wednesday night as the Celtics fell 115-111 in overtime to the Heat at American Airlines Arena. The Celtics were whistled for 33 fouls while the Heat were called for just 18 in 53 minutes of action.
"It is what it is," Rivers said. "LeBron James took 24 free throws tonight and our team took 29. Paul Pierce fouled out of a game where he was attacking the basket. It's just tough. We have to just keep playing. I tell our guys, 'It doesn't matter. We can't get distracted.' We will not get distracted in this series. I guarantee you, right now, they're distracted, our team in the locker room, but we have to get out of us and move on. Whatever happened, happened. We just have to move on and play the next game."
Two key plays will stand out to Celtics fans who feel they were robbed of the chance to win Game 2. Pierce was called for his sixth and final...
Dwyane Wade scored 24 points and Udonis Haslem scored the go-ahead dunk during a 9-0 run in overtime as the Heat handed the Celtics a crushing 115-111 loss in Game 2 of the Eastern Conference finals Wednesday night at American Airlines Arena. The Heat, who were led by 34 points from LeBron James, lead the Celtics 2-0 as the series shifts back to Boston for Game 3 on Friday.
Rajon Rondo posted one of the greatest playoff performances in the legendary history of the Celtics and the NBA, scoring 44 points, dishing 10 assists and hauling down eight rebounds while playing all 53 minutes. Rondo was 16-of-24 from the field and kept the Celtics in the game late, as Paul Pierce and Keyon Dooling fouled out. Again, the officials were a significant point of controversy as the Celtics were whistled for 33 fouls while the Heat were called for just 18. The most blatant missed called came late in overtime with the game tied as Rondo drove the basket. Replays showed...
According to a team source, Dustin Pedroia is targeting next Monday's off day as the date in which a determination will be made if the second baseman is to play with his injured right thumb. Pedroia was optimistic that he would not be going on the 15-day disabled list due to a slight tear in his thumb's adductor muscle.
Pedroia, who did take a few swings Tuesday, will not swing a bat for the next few days while the swelling and bruising subsides. He was outfitted with a specially-made brace -- made by technicians at Newton-Wellesley Orthopedic Associates earlier in the day Wednesday -- which he will use when he begins hitting again. While not swinging a bat, Pedroia has been instructed wear a more cumbersome brace.
Pedroia said that the initial injury occurred in the Red Sox' May 2 game against Oakland when he fouled off a 2-0 fastball from Ryan Cook the seventh inning. After that game, X-rays taken on the Sox' second baseman's thumb didn't reveal...
