For all you Celtics fans:

WALTHAM, Mass. -- Kevin Garnett (http://sports.espn.go.com/nba/players/profile?playerId=261) will miss at least the next four games with a sore right knee and may return for the final three games of the Boston Celtics (http://sports.espn.go.com/nba/clubhouse?team=bos)' regular season.
The emotional leader and defensive star of the defending NBA champions has missed 15 of the last 19 games, including the last two. The Celtics hope the rest will help him get healthy for the playoffs.

I'd rather the Heat play a banged up Boston then Orlando lol

Even with the brutal schedule coming up, the Heat are in good shape to keep the 5th spot.

The Celtics have given up on getting the top overall seed and probably don't care if they're 2nd or 3rd. Noone wants to face the Pistons, but its impossible to predict where they'll end up seeding wise.

Good news for my team. I want to keep that two seed.

Isn't it funny that all you hear is excuses from Celtics fans about KG being out for an extended period of time but no one ever mentions the Magic lost their All-Star point guard for the season?

I'm hoping for a 5th seed, but if we end up against Boston in the 3/6 matchup..I like our chances better than a matchup against Orlando.

Yeah, but if the Magic and Heat were matched up, Dwyane Wade would break the all-time scoring record for a single playoff series.

He's had great games against the Magic..unfortunately, the rest of the team never shows up.
