'Sickening' effort by C's in playoff quest

BOSTON -- Earlier this week, Boston Celtics forward Jae Crowder posted a picture to Instagram with him tugging on his Celtics jersey split-screened with a photo of Kevin Garnett doing the same. He captioned it, "The presence of pride! Playing for something bigger than yourself," with a hashtag referencing Boston's playoff push. After Wednesday's head-shaking 93-86 loss to the incredibly shorthanded Miami Heat, Crowder unknowingly stood in almost the identical spot inside the Celtics locker room where Garnett held so many of his postgame confabs with reporters.

The other benefits of KG-Young deal: Nets saved nearly $10 million

Thaddeus Young is now averaging 14.4 points per game and shooting 53.3 percent from three since joining the Nets 15 games ago in the deadline day deal that sent Kevin Garnett to the Timberwolves. In Friday night's seemingly never-ending triple overtime win, he had 24 points, five rebounds, three assists and shot 3-of-5 from deep. Not bad. And as Marc Stein reports Saturday, the deal also saved the Nets around $7 million in luxury taxes. The trade that sent Kevin Garnett back to Minnesota for Thaddeus Young shaved Brooklyn's luxury-tax bill from slightly more than $26 million to...

Doc Rivers knew Kevin Garnett's only way out of Brooklyn was via trade

In an interview with the Minneapolis Star-Tribune, Doc Rivers acknowledges that he wanted Kevin Garnett for a season-ending turn in L.A., but he knew he had nothing to appeal to the Nets and that Brooklyn was not going to buy him out.  So the trade of KG for Thaddeus Young didn't surprise him. "I didn’t think they’d ever do a buyout there," said Rivers, whose Clippers team meets Garnett and the Wolves on Monday in Los Angeles. "They’re actually in a playoff race. When I read or heard that we were going to get him, I kept thinking that made no sense to me. The only way I thought...

Knee-jerk Notes: Adreian Payne

Well, it's been a grip of time since I last did one of these things. So, let's just get right into it before I lose momentum and stop typing. Can Adreian Payne develop into a rotation player? Hello, everyone. The Minnesota Timberwolves acquired Adreian Payne, 24, from the Atlanta Hawks about one week before the trade deadline and, shortly thereafter, traded Thaddeus Young to the Brooklyn Nets in exchange for Kevin Garnett. Because of the injuries suffered by Anthony Bennett and Robbie Hummel, respectively, Payne and Garnett will fill up most of the minutes left in wake of Young's...

Thaddeus Young fitting in with the Nets

NEW YORK -- It looked like Thaddeus Young and Markel Brown had been playing together for years. Try 68 seconds. And yet just over a minute after Young checked in for the first time since being acquired by the Brooklyn Nets in a Feb. 19 trade deadline deal in exchange for Kevin Garnett, he anticipated that the high-flying rookie guard would rise up, threw a perfect lob pass and the duo successfully completed a highlight-reel worthy give-and-go alley-oop in Los Angeles, displaying the kind of on-court cohesiveness you would think takes some significant time to foster.
