Some folks just don’t get out enough.
All-star Kevin Garnett became the 16th player in league history to record 25,000 career points against the LA Lakers tonight. The milestone came in the second quarter with 8:11 left to play on a trademark turnaround KG fade away. I think being nasty keeps him young, so maybe he should stick with it. Just sayin’.
“Rajon will get surgery in 10 to 14 days, when the swelling is right and we anticipate that he’ll back and as good as ever in training camp,” Ainge said. “(Kendrick Perkins) Perk came back in six months and that’s a little bit unusual and Adrian Peterson came back in six months and so did Wes Welker. I guess every body is a little bit different and [with] every injury there’s some differences.”
No pressure Rondo.

Probably 90% of us found out Rajon Rondo suffered an ACL tear from ESPN’s Doris Burke, who provided updates on the situation throughout the Heat vs Celtics game. As it turns out, his teammate Paul Pierce was also among the 90% that found out from Burke — on national TV about the unfortunate news. Yes, it was awkward and yes it deserved The Gas Face.
Boston Celtics star Rajon Rondo has torn his anterior cruciate ligament and will miss the rest of the season. The team made the announcement during Sunday’s 100-98 double-overtime win over the Miami Heat.
“We’ve just got to rally around each other,” Paul Pierce said after the game. “I feel for him. He was having such a good season. It’s disappointing news.”
Rondo injured his right knee in Friday night’s double-overtime loss in Atlanta, a game in which the Celtics blew a 27-point lead. He reported to the TD Garden on Sunday for a pregame shootaround but was taken to a hospital after complaining of knee pain. Rondo was averaging career highs of 13.7 points and 5.6 rebounds along with 11.1 assists this season.
