NEW YORK -- One of the major concerns facing the veteran Brooklyn Nets going into this season was their health. It’s definitely a concern right now. The Nets, who were already without Kevin Garnett for a fifth straight game due to back spasms, lost both Paul Pierce (sore right shoulder) and Andrei Kirilenko (sprained right ankle) to injury in their 104-89 blowout victory over the Sacramento Kings Sunday night at Barclays Center. With critical games coming up against Toronto, Miami and Washington this week, this isn’t good.

While maintaining it was in the past and not a big deal, Boston Celtics president of basketball operations Danny Ainge shed light on the disconnect between the team and Rajon Rondo late last month when the captain did not travel with the team from Los Angeles to Sacramento. Rondo, not scheduled to play on the second night of a back-to-back as part of his recovery from ACL surgery, elected to stay behind in Los Angeles (where the Celtics had played the Lakers) and celebrate his 28th birthday while his teammates lost to the Kings.
BOSTON -- Boston Celtics coach Brad Stevens said he's talked with point guard Rajon Rondo about the player's decision to not accompany the team to Sacramento last week, but said the team is handling the matter internally and Stevens stressed his goal is to simply move forward. With the Celtics playing the second night of a back-to-back on Saturday, Rondo was not scheduled to play against the Kings as he eases his way back from ACL surgery. But rather than fly with the team, he remained in Los Angeles where the Boston Herald reported that he celebrated his 28th birthday with family and...
Rapid reaction after the Sacramento Kings defeated the Boston Celtics 105-98 on Saturday evening at Sleep Train Arena: THE NITTY GRITTY The shorthanded Celtics -- playing without starters Rajon Rondo (rest), Avery Bradley (ankle), and Jared Sullinger (concussion) -- rallied from as much as 16 down to tie the game in the second half, but couldn't snap their Western Conference road losing streak (falling to 0-12 this season). Frustrations eventually bubbled over as both coach Brad Stevens and Gerald Wallace were tossed in the final minute.
Kings coach says in radio interview that guard acquired in Wednesday’s trade with Brooklyn will rehab injuries that have slowed him this season. Kings guard Jason Terry, playing for Brooklyn in November, talks to official Joe Crawford about a foul during a game at Sleep Train Arena. It will be Terry’s only appearance in uniform in Sacramento this season. He’ll rehab in Dallas and not join the Kings after Wednesday’s trade.
The Boston Celtics (19-37, 8-20 away) visit the Sacramento Kings (18-36, 11-17 home) on Saturday evening at Sleep Train Arena (10 p.m., CSN). Here's what to watch for: SULLINGER VS. COUSINS, ROUND II!: Jared Sullinger and DeMarcus Cousins locked horns earlier this month in a game that saw both score 31 points (a career high for Sullinger) and grab 16 rebounds. Cousins missed Sacramento's last game with a hip injury, but is expected back versus Boston.
