Garnett: 'I have no life at this point'

Kevin Garnett wasn't talking about disrespect and he wasn't talking about his age after scoring 29 points against Philadelphia in the Celtics' 92-91 win in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference semifinals.

"I have no life at this point," Garnett said. "I go home, get treatment, come back in here, study tape, film. No life at all. It's what it is."

Garnett played 38 minutes in the opener and all 12 in the fourth quarter. Coach Doc Rivers acknowledged that playing him that much was a problem, but it's what he has to do this point.

"It's so hard when he's off the floor for those 10 or 12 minutes," Rivers said. "I mean, you're in a panic right now. And we have to. Our plus/minus when he's off the floor is horrendous. So that's an area we have to improve on. But when he's on the floor he's doing everything for us."

Said Sixers coach Doug Collins, "I've never seen him play better."

Pierce: 'We're gonna ride Garnett all the way'

Celtics captain Paul Pierce may have continued his struggles from the floor, but Kevin Garnett picked up the slack, amassing 29 points, 11 rebounds and three blocks -- a statistical line he hasn't produced since March 2007 as a member of the Timberwolves -- in the 92-91 win over the 76ers.

"We feel like that's our advantage," said Pierce of Garnett after Game 1 of the Eastern Conference semifinals. "That's our advantage every night when you look at the Eastern Conference and the teams that have to match up with him. We're gonna ride Kevin all the way until his wheels fall off. And he's bringing it every night. He understands the urgency of this ballclub, and he's giving everything he's got out there for us. He's looking magnificent. He's looked like the '04 MVP, definitely."

Pierce scored 14 points on just 3-of-11 shooting (8-8 FT), but Garnett submitted his second straight monster performance of the playoffs. Over his last two...

Dooling: Rondo 'smartest player in our game'

Following Rondo's eighth career playoff triple-double, Keyon Dooling dubbed the Celtics point guard "the smartest player in our game."

"I think sometimes his basketball intellect is overshadowed by some of his moments," said Dooling after the C's 92-91 victory against the 76ers in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference semifinals. "He's the smartest player in our game."

Rondo finished with 13 points, 17 assists and 12 rebounds -- including 11 points, nine dimes and eight boards in the second half -- but perhaps his most cerebral play of the night came in the final 3.4 seconds of the game. With the C's leading by one and the Sixers looking to foul, Rondo and his 54.5 percent playoff free throw percentage rushed to the backcourt, knowing Philadelphia had a foul to give, avoiding a defender and dribbling out the clock for the victory.

"If you look, he's a coach on the floor," added Dooling....

Rondo (triple-double), KG lead C's in Game 1

Rajon Rondo had his eighth career playoff triple-double - and second of these playoffs - while Kevin Garnett picked up where he left off in Round 1 with 29 points and 11 rebounds in 38 minutes as the Celtics overcame the Sixers, 92-91, in Game 1 of their Eastern Conference semifinal series Saturday night at TD Garden. Rondo had 13 points, 12 rebounds and 17 assists to lead the Celtics. The Sixers made a late charge in the closing seconds after Boston had a six-point lead. But Rondo received the inbounds pass and ran out the final 3.4 seconds. 

Despite both teams clinching their first round series on Thursday, the Sixers were the more energetic team early, jumping out to a 15-6 lead. Andre Iguodala hit a pair of 3-pointers in the first quarter. He had 10 points for Philadelphia in the opening quarter whilie the Sixers shot 55 percent as a team. The Celtics, meanwhile, were ice cold, making just six of their 20 shots as the Sixers claimed a 28-18 lead...

Doubront leads Sox to second straight win

The Red Sox now have their first home win streak since their initial series at Fenway Park this season, topping the Indians, 4-1, Saturday.

Leading the way for the Red Sox was starter Felix Doubront, who only allowed one run over six innings, giving up three hits while striking out five. It marked just the third time this season Sox starters have turned in back-to-back outings in which they surrendered three runs over less while pitching six innings or more.

The Sox offense got two hits apiece from Dustin Pedroia and Daniel Nava, while David Ortiz notched an RBI double and Cody Ross blasted his sixth homer of the season over the left field wall for the hosts' final run. It was Ross' first home run since April 23.

The Red Sox got another round of solid relief pitching, as well, with Andrew Miller, Vicente Padilla and Alfredo Aceves turning in one shutout inning apiece to close things out. It was the first time in Miller's career he had...
