Slow Monday morning around the Boston “God We’re F—– If The Globe Closes Down” Media:
- Perkins anchors defense: Though the Celtics have established a reputation for demonstrating how championships derive from defending, relatively few of the franchise’s players have been named to the NBA All-Defensive first team. Kevin Garnett became the seventh Celtic named to the team last year, matching the number of titles the team has won since the All-Defensive team was inaugurated in the 1968-69 season. [Boston Globe]
- Danny Ainge’s hopes high for playoffs: “I love our team,” said the Celtics’ president of a team that is managing to hold on to the second seed in the Eastern Conference despite significant injuries. “I mean, there are all sorts of question marks as far as health and what’s going to happen. Those are always the variables and the uncertainties with every team. But I really like our team. When we’re healthy and we’re playing, I love what we can be.” [Boston Herald]
- Ray Allen Reaches New Heights While Conditioning: This season Allen’s conditioning has been tested. With Kevin Garnett and a handful of others injured, he has had no choice but to play extra minutes. Hitting the gym early keeps him fresh during the season. But draining game-winners after hustling for 46 minutes would not be possible without his hard work during the offseason. [WEEI.com]
