Garnett: 'Rondo's playing hurt'

BOSTON -- Celtics point guard Rajon Rondo recorded eight assists but failed to score or grab a rebound in the Celtics 92-80 victory against the Pacers on Wednesday night. Based on Rondo's recent struggles, teammate Kevin Garnett was asked what was wrong with the team's all-star floor general.

 

"Rondo's playing hurt," said Garnett. "He's hurting. He's giving us everything he has. He's grinding. He's playing countless minutes, and he's not playing like a washed-up guy."

 

Rondo took just two shots in almost 30 minutes on the floor. Asked if he thought Rondo was bothered by the ankle he tweaked against the Nets, Garnett said, "I don't know. You'd have to talk to him."

Krstic: 'Shaq deserves to start'

Shaquille O'Neal was able to get on the floor and get shots up on Wednesday, which was the first step in his comeback from an Achilles injury. Celtics coach Doc Rivers said before the team took on the Pacers that he wanted to see O'Neal get through a practice and not feel pain before he'd consider bringing him back for games. He's expected to reclaim his starting job when he does return and Nenad Krstic said that he has no problems with that. "I think Shaq deserves to start," Krstic said. "He got hurt. He was a starter before he got hurt and I think he gets that job back."

 

Krstic has averaged better than 12 points and seven rebounds since arriving from the Thunder. He said coming off the bench will be an adjustment but he is up for the challenge. "It’s different. You prepare differently for the game," he said. "Pretty much all my career I’ve been a starter but I don’t really mind coming...

Celtics set Pace, beat Indiana

It took the Celtics a quarter but they finally snapped out of their offense malaise, and just in time to earn a 92-80 win over the Pacers Wednesday night at TD Garden. The Celtics had lost three of their last four and the victory pulls them back into a tie with the Bulls for the best record in the Eastern Conference at 48-18.

 

Paul Pierce led the way with 20 points and Jeff Green scored 17 of his 19 points in the first half as the Celtics shook off a 15-point first quarter. Rajon Rondo also rebounded somewhat with eight assists although he didn't score, or take a shot after missing two in the first quarter.

 

Wednesday's game also marked the return of Delonte West from an ankle injury. With West on board the Celtics had 12 active players, something they haven't had since before the All-Star break. There was good news all around for the Celtics as Troy Murphy also put together his best performance with six points and three...

West ready for his next comeback

Delonte West is ready to make a comeback for the third time this season. His latest setback was a sprained ankle, but it was actually a little bit worse than that. West said before the Celtics game with Indiana that he actually chipped a bone in his ankle when he rolled it over a coach’s foot during a shootaround in late February. “A standard ankle sprain I was thinking two to three days and I’ve been out for about two weeks,” West said. “I’ve waited this long, what’s two more weeks? We’re here now again, so I’m looking forward to playing.”

 

Celtics coach Doc Rivers said it was too soon to tell how he would divvy up the backcourt minutes between West and Carlos Arroyo. “I want Delonte on the floor,” Rivers said. “I want to try to establish more and more the group that we have, the second unit.  We’ll see how those two play together. We’ll see how...
