“I take full responsibility for this game,’’ he tweeted. “I couldn’t throw a rock in the ocean … Gotta make some shots for my team. Sorry guys.’’
In the past few weeks, Robinson’s gone from understudy to playing one of the more important roles in the offense, and he’s handled the change so well that it’s easy to overlook how difficult the task really is.
“Yeah, I want to debate with Skip. But, I want to do it.. um, he has to wear spandex and Larry King straps… And I have to wear, and I’ll wear, like football equipment and I’ll tackle the hell out of him.”—Ron Artest (on if he’ll come in and debate Skip Bayless on ESPN’s First Take)
“I would be Wolverine. When I watched the movie, we have similar styles. We both have a lot of grit and similar characteristics. He has those bones of steel that don’t break so I’d love to have that right now.”—Delonte West on which superhero he would be (via the Celtics.com chat)
Perk returned to the Celtics’ practice floor in Waltham on Tuesday, playing a minimal role as he briefly did non-contact drills with his teammates. He’s still a long way from returning to game action, but the practice time was a solid step in the right direction for the Celtics’ center.

The officials reviewed the shot and saw it the same way, ruling the shot came after the buzzer. Having put on a masterful performance as the evening’s spoiler, Pierce walked to center court, stood on the Knicks’ logo, and took a bow, knowing he had stolen the show from a Knicks team dying to prove its newfound status in the Eastern Conference was legit. And he loved it.
He saves the day all the time and never even makes most people’s “10 best NBA players” lists.
