Pregame News and Notes

Anything Really is Possible for Pierce: Kevin Garnett [1] screamed it after winning the NBA Finals [2]. This season Paul Pierce [3] is taking on the same optimistic attitude. In a rare chat with the media prior to Friday’s game, Pierce was asked how he could top winning a title, becoming a father, and watching his alma mater Kansas win the NCAA [4] championship.

‘€œKansas wins the title, become a dad again, and we win it again. That would top it,’€ he said with a laugh, adding, ‘€œIt’s a possibility.’€

Pruitt in Need of Some R&R: Gabe Pruitt [5] left the building prior to the Celtics-76ers game with flu-like symptoms. He was sick on Thanksgiving and does not expect to travel with the team to Charlotte for tomorrow’s game against the Bobcats.

Young Thanks KG: Among veteran standouts like Elton Brand and Andre Iguodala [6], Kevin Garnett is paying close attention to a (literally and figuratively) young player. He’s had his eye on Thaddeus Young, and the second-year forward was taken aback by the acknowledgment.

‘€œIt’s pretty good. He’s an All-Star player,’€ Young said with his trademark smile. ‘€œIt’s pretty big for him to say something like that so, you know, thank him for that.’€
