Mashup: Karma bites back at LeBron

Following the Cavaliers' embarrassing 112-57 loss to the Lakers on Tuesday night, a message was sent from LeBron James' Twitter account: Crazy. Karma is a b****. Gets you every time. It’s not good to wish bad on anybody. God sees everything! On Wednesday, karma apparently turned its attention to LeBron. First, James denied he wrote the original tweet in an evasive and confusing interview in which he denied wishing ill will on the Cavaliers. Then, the Heat had their 13-game road winning streak snapped by the Clippers, 111-105, and James, who scored 27 points, sprained his ankle in the loss.

 

Also in the news, Ravens linebacker Terrell Suggs has turned his anger away from New England and toward Pittsburgh leading up to the other AFC semifinal game, and formerly homeless Ohio voiceover man Ted Williams will enter rehab after an appearance on "Dr. Phil."

Doc passes K.C.: 'It's awesome, I guess'

Doc Rivers sounded a humble tone when told after the game that the 119-95 win over the Kings moved him past K.C. Jones on the Celtics' all-time list for regular-season coaching wins with 309. 

 

“Yeah, you know, I don’t know what that means, honestly," Rivers said. "It’s awesome, I guess. I mean, I just don’t know what that means, yet, because I’m not thinking about it much, I’m not done. But it’s nice. And, listen, it’s Danny Ainge at the end of the day. I’m full aware of that. We were bad for two years and he stuck with me. And believed in me. And so, at the end of the day it’s Danny Ainge more than me.”

 

Rivers, whose record stands at 309-221, trails only Tommy Heinsohn (427) and leader Red Auerbach (795) on the franchise's all-time list. Rivers guaranteed one thing Wednesday, he won't be shooting for first. “No. That ain...

Wake-up call: C's put away Kings

Paul Pierce scored 15 of his game-high 25 points in the first quarter while Ray Allen had a pair of 3-pointers in the midst of a big run to open the third quarter as the Celtics ran away from the Kings, 119-95, Wednesday night at TD Garden. Nate Robinson was big off the bench, going 4-for-5 from 3-point range and finishing with 16, one of four bench players in double figures. 

 

Despite coming into the game with an 8-27 record and without their leading scorer — Tyreke Evans — the Kings overcame an early 8-0 deficit to take a brief one-point lead. The Celtics struggled in the second quarter and could not put the Kings away in the first half as Beno Udrih scored 14 of his 16 points to keep the visitors within eight at half, 57-49.

 

But Allen — who finished with 14 — drilled his fourth 3-pointer to cap a 16-6 run at the start of the third quarter, as the Celtics built their lead up to 25. Pierce...

J. O'Neal to miss Kings game

Kevin Garnett isn't the only Celtic player who won't be able to play Wednesday against the Kings. Jermaine O'Neal will also miss the game after his knee swelled up Wednesday morning. O'Neal missed 19 games with a knee injury, but he returned on Christmas Day and has played in the last 10 games. O'Neal didn't play in the second half against in a blowout win over Toronto last Friday, but he played 21 minutes against the Rockets on Monday.

 

"I’m concerned," Doc Rivers said. "He’s [played three] weeks now and a practice and his knee swelled up. First of all it has to be extremely frustrating for him because he worked his butt off to get back and he was playing well. And secondly, we all have common sense. That’s a concern. Why is this happening? We have to figure that out."

Garnett may be out until Monday

The original prognosis for Kevin Garnett's return from a strained calf was two weeks. Now it appears that it will take a little longer. Garnett won't play tonight against the Kings, as expected, but Doc Rivers sounded pessimistic about whether Garnett would be ready to go Friday against the Bobcats. That puts Monday's game with the Magic as the new target date.

 

"Eddie [Lacerte, the team's trainer] and I talked about it yesterday and it will really depend on what we do [Thursday]," Rivers said. "My guess [for Friday] is no, because after that we have two days off. My thinking right now, unless he comes out and practices the whole practice and looks great, is probably off Friday too and then probably [play] Monday." 

 

Rivers is aware that people are questioning the nature of Garnett's injury, but he insisted that nothing has changed except the timeline. "There’s no conspiracy here or...
