Kevin Garnett could miss the entire playoffs

Doc Rivers said Thursday that there’s a strong possibility that Kevin Garnett could miss the entire postseason and the Celtics will have to move on and defend their title without him according to ESPN.”He’s not going to be ready. After watching him practice, there’s no way,” Rivers said on WEEI-AM. “The way I saw him move today, I don’t know if he’ll be ready.”

Rivers watched Garnett run at the team’s practice facility and said he had to shut him down after 20 minutes.
“If he can’t get through biking and working out without swelling and his leg locking, I don’t know how you can play in the playoffs,” Rivers said. “This was an honest run today, you couldn’t make your way through it. The guy’s a warrior, you see him try to mask his way through it. But after 20 minutes of running, I don’t see it. After today, there’s no way he can play.”

If the Celtics adance in the playoffs, the Cavaliers could face them in the Eastern Conference finals.

Where Will Amazing Happen This Year?

LeBron James: Where Will Amazing Happen This Year?

With the 2009 NBA Playoffs almost around the corner, the NBA released 14 different commercials that capture some of the amazing plays of the 2008 playoffs. These commercials are in black and white and meant to capture viewers emotions with the caption “Where Will Amazing Happen This Year”.

I keep watching these commercials over and over and I love most of them. However, as a Cavaliers fan, my favorite is Lebron Jame’s dunk on Kevin Garnett during the 2008 Eastern Conference Semifinals.

Cavaliers Crush The Celtics (98-83)

Cavaliers vs CelticsThe Cavaliers did to the Celtics what they’ve been doing to every other club when they visit the Q handing them their 4th loss in a row. The Celtics never led as the Cavaliers playing without injured center Zydrunas Ilgauskas.

Including last year’s postseason, the Cavaliers have now reeled off 10 straight wins over the Celtics at The Q. In those victories, the Cavaliers have defeated Boston by an average of 11.0 points per contest.

The Celtics got within three points early in the third quarter, but LeBron James took over the game at that point – scoring seven straight point. “We have to continue to protect home court,” said the young King. “We want to continue to get better and we got better tonight. You don’t want to take a step back because we have a big picture and a goal. You don’t want to waste a game and not get better. We got much better tonight.”

Lebron as usual stuffed the state sheet with 38 points, seven rebounds, six assists, four steals and three blocks.

Anderson Varejao had a solid game. He flirted with his seventh double-double of the season on Friday – tallying 14 points and nine boards. In the last seven games, the Wild Thing is averaging 13.0 points on .586 shooting, averaging 9.4 rebounds per contest. In seven starts this season, Varejao is averaging 15.0 points on .569 shooting, grabbing 9.4 rebounds per game.

“I’m working hard every day on my jump shot and my offensive game,” said the fifth-year forward from Brazil. “I feel pretty good out there. I am playing with a lot of confidence and they are passing the ball to me.”

Boston resorted to a Hack-a-Ben strategy past the midpoint of the fourth quarter. Boston fouled Wallace on five consecutive Cavs possessions, but end up making 5-of-10 at the foul line.
