This Kentucky presser is filled with "Can you talk about..." questions, Not good.
What a great game. Kentucky comes through one more time. Towns was a monster.
Kentucky... by a Cats' whisker.
Oh no what will they do without any more timeouts?
That's former NBA referee Joe DeRosa with the lead whistle on Notre Dame-Kentucky.
No idea why college shot clock doesn't have tenths of a second when it winds down.
This game can go to overtime fine by the world.
Notre Dame's been playing free and loose. Looked tight on that last possession.
Has anyone copyrighted "Play like clowns for Towns" in the NBA tanking slogan competition yet?
Amazing how, even against the nation's best defense, Notre Dame refuses to settle for decent looks. So patient. So aggressive. So purposeful

Whoa, 6-5 Pat Connaughton has twice as many rebounds as any UK player.
Mike Brey can coach his backside off
Damn Towns, you just gonna let dude drive the lane and dunk like that?
Grant's a first round pick. It's not like Notre Dame doesn't have talent.
Did the Kentucky coaches buy those suits together?
This tournament owes us a crazy finish. Feels like it's been forever.
Rachel Nichols does a really good job as a sideline reporter. Small anecdotes make a difference.
Everyone in Texas has a gun huh? Having a good time talking with the Texans about this. Just met one guy who says he has at least 25.
Thinking of checking out a movie tonight. Any good flicks in theaters?
Could Kentucky beat the UConn women, though?
We're almost in April, and two of Boston's three most frequently used lineups still include Rajon Rondo.
Bass on meeting Doc Rivers: I think you guys try to make it something more than it is.
Brad Stevens says he considers changing the starting lineup every day but always gets back to the same points that persuade him not to do so
Sullinger upstairs in fitness room. Looks like he's on something like a stairmaster as his teammates wait to begin practice.
Stevens said they think about changing the starters every day. Seems to come back to, if you fix one issue, you might cause another.
Jonas Jerebko: "Mental fatigue? I don't think so. ... Right now, it's work time."
For clarity: that stat uses only minutes when the Celtics starting five plays as a unit. Still crazy.
With 18.8 FTA per 48 minutes, Knicks are the worst in the league at drawing free throws. The Celtics starting five averages 9.8.
I forgot Louisville shot just 24 pct vs. UK in December and still lost by just 8. I support a title-game rematch.
Will the snow ever stop?
You never realize how little the world makes sense until you explain the difference between eating and measuring spoons to a toddler.
It's snowing again. What circle of hell is this?
See you again on draft night, NYC... http://t.co/P5Ix4RBBdA
Tom Izzo teams never lose early in March, do they? Elite Eight could be crazy.
In case it wasn't obvious, Brad Stevens absolutely loves what Jae Crowder brings to this Celtics team.
Jahlil Okafor's so good Utah just double-teamed him on the weak side of the lane while his teammate went in for a wide open dunk.
JAE CROWDER SAID THE ONLY REASON HE TWEETS IN ALL CAPS IS BECAUSE HE LIKES BEING DIFFERENT. got it?
Isaiah Thomas: "I don’t ever lack confidence. I work too hard to have low confidence."
Marcus Smart has become king of the Isaiah Thomas is short jokes.
Isaiah Thomas was asked if he scoreboard-watches. "Brooklyn won, the Heat lost, the Hornets lost. So, yeah."
Marcus Smart, why did Isaiah Thomas struggle a bit in his first game back Wednesday? "Everything was short, no pun intended." Burn.
Brad Stevens' kid in locker room, tells Evan Turner "You're in the top 25 in statistics." Turner: "Thanks, tell Danny Ainge that."
Crowder on he and IT off the bench : "Attack. We just try to attack the defense... And not just on offense, but the defensive end as well."
Stevens said Crowder has been more versatile than Cs expected. "He's been a real bonus for our team."
Stevens on responding to New York's late surge: "We did respond to every challenge, any time it got to three/two we pushed it back up."
Stevens on the win: "This was a hard game, we all knew it was going to be a hard game. I'm happy we won, but we made some mistakes late."
Celtics win at MSG for the 23rd time in 33 tries... Celtics 2001-15 TD Garden: 369-228 (.618) Madison Sq Garden: 23-10 (.697)
A four-point win that was never in doubt. Cs still in 8th, half a game up on Brooklyn, 1 game up on Indiana, 1.5 games up on Charlotte.
The Celtics take down the Knicks, 96-92. Isaiah Thomas' 18 points led four C's who notched at least 15 on the night. http://t.co/ZOYVoeLsXi
Celtics 96, Knicks 92. Final. Boston hangs onto the 8-seed for another night.
Scal just made the Marcus Smart-Ron Artest defense comparison, which I think is a pretty good one despite the obvious size differences.
Live look...10:13pm.... 7 Heat 33 39 8 Celtics 32 40 9 Nets 31 40 10 Pacers 31 41 11 Hornets 30 41 C's host Clippers Sunday.
This should become one of the closest never-in-doubt Celtics wins I've ever covered.
And the Knicks often take bad angles on closeouts.
