Kobe: I wanted to redeem myself

BOSTON -- Playing with an injured right index finger and a sprained left ankle, Kobe Bryant drilled the game-winning shot on Sunday that propelled his Lakers over the Celtics, 90-89, at TD Garden. Afterward, he said the shot was satisfying because in a similar situation last season, he missed a shot at the end of regulation that would have won the game in Boston. "Special for me, personally, because I had opportunity to win the game last year and I didn't do it. I didn't get the shot I wanted, so I wanted to make sure I redeemed myself today." The Lakers did eventually beat the Celtics last February at the Garden, 110-109, in overtime.

Kobe kills C's: Late jumper wins it

Kobe Bryant finished with 19 points and hit a fallaway jumper over Ray Allen with 7.3 seconds remaining to give the Lakers a 90-89 win over the Celtics on Sunday at TD Garden. Allen missed a jumper from the left wing that would have won the game. Ron Artest drew an offensive foul on Paul Pierce with 27.5 seconds remaining, giving Bryant the chance to win the game. Rajon Rondo had one of his best games of the season, scoring a game-high 21 points and dishing out 12 assists for the Celtics, who lost their third straight. Tony Allen led a solid effort from the Boston bench, scoring 14 points. The Celtics, who play in Washington Monday night, led by seven heading into the final quarter but were outscored 18-0 in the paint in the final 12 minutes.

KG not back to 'normal' standards

 

BOSTON — Celtics coach Doc Rivers conceded Kevin Garnett is not the same player he was two years ago when he was the NBA Defensive Player of the Year and the centerpiece of Boston's run to a 17th NBA title. Surgery to remove bone spurs behind his right knee last summer and a hyperextended right knee suffered late in December have slowed Garnett's return to form. But before Sunday's game, Rivers said he still believes Garnett will return to the top defensively — hopefully taking the Celtics along for the ride. “I can [expect Garnett back to form], but not right now," Rivers said conditionally. "But really none of our guys who have come back, you can’t hold any of them to their normal standards right now. Our biggest issue with our injuries is that they’re healthy but they’re not ready to play basketball at this level yet." For more, including audio from Rivers talking about Garnett,...

Belichick not 'YearBook, MyFace' fan

According to Heath Evans, Patriots coach Bill Belichick is no fan of his players engaging in social networking. In his latest blog entry for WEEI.com, the Saints fullback — who played in New England the last three-plus years before signing with New Orleans before the start of the 2009 season — told players a few years ago to stay off of “YearBook and MyFace.”

Evans does say that Belichick is “hands down one of the Top 5 funniest people I know. I know the stonefaced head coach on the sideline looks anything but funny. I understand that his post-game hand shakes and interviews are the stuff of legend, but get to know the man and he will have you rolling for days!”

Doc: Lakers 'better than last year'

BOSTON — The Los Angeles Lakers came to town on Sunday with an NBA-best 36-11 record. And Celtics coach Doc Rivers believes this Lakers team is better than the one that won the NBA title last year. “I think having won the title, having the same title team back, adding Artest, that continuity and health I think those have been three pretty good things for them,” Rivers said. “It’s rare when you get a championship team that adds to their team, and they did. You don’t see that very often. People are taking away from championship teams. It’s rare that they come back better, and they’re better than last year."
