The Boston Celtics have fell to 4.5 games behind the Cleveland Cavaliers, but now they gain back the NBA's most intense player, KG, Kevin Garnett. Without KG the Celtics went 7-6 since his injury was sustained on February 19th in Utah. Now with KG the Celts have won 80-77 to the Spurs, and won huge 105-87 against the Grizzlies, and Garnett had 10 points and four rebounds in each game.

The Celtics are now 53-18 in the late season, and are in second place in the Eastern Conference behind King James and the Cavs, but missing KG and with the nagging injuries of Rondo and Scal, the Celts had fallen 4.5 games behind the pace of King James and the Cavs.

Now with KG and most of the team healthy, fans can see what the likes of the Big Three and the second team lead by Marbury can do together and see how much damage this team can do.

The Celtics are the most dangerous team in the NBA. They don't revolve around one player, (like the Cavs), they have three All-Stars and future Hall of Famers, which are all top scorers and most importantly top defenders and a a great bench led by career 20 PPG Stephon Marbury. The Celtics look to catch Cleveland to claim the top spot in the East.
