“…he looks fresh and healthy”

If Marc J. Spears is right, a strong shoot-around could be enough for Doc to bring KG back tonight.  Danny Ainge thinks KG is ready. "He's looking good," Ainge said. "He's made a great deal of strides, especially in the last 10 days or so. It took him a little while to get going. But... [More]
