Because there's nothing quite as satisfying as a good morning dump. “I don’t know if it was good defense by both teams or horrendous offense,’’ Rivers said. “Actually, I thought it was good defense.

Celtics Survive in LA

It wasn't pretty. In fact, the Celtics did everything they could to give away this game in the 4th quarter, but they pulled it out, 87-86. How hard was it? The Cs scored just 11 points in the final quarter. Ray Allen, Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett went scoreless in the last 12 minutes. Fueled... [More]
