Around the Rim: Irish eyes are smiling

1. Boston’s bounce back Despite falling behind by as many as 22 points, the Celtics came roaring back on in San Antonio on St. Patrick’s day to defeat the Spurs 93-91.

Around the Rim: Utah’s Most Wanted

1. Naughty, naughty Nowitzki Dirk Nowitzki’s frustrations were evident just five minutes into the game. And they were equally obvious by the time the final buzzer sounded in Utah’s 116-110 home victory over the Mavericks.

Around the Rim: Kevin Garnett is almost ready for his close up

1. Welcome back? Kevin Garnett cares about one thing and one thing only – winning.

Around the Rim: Jason’s still a Net, no Kidding!

Around the Rim: Disappointing debut

1. Chicago shocker Chris Webber made his return to Golden State on Thursday evening, but the beleaguered Bulls somehow managed to ruin his second debut.

Around the Rim: Fight to the finish

1. No Answer for Iverson The race for the Northwest Division crown reached a fever pitch with the recent reemergence of the Utah Jazz.

Around the Rim: Poof!! The Magic make Boston disappear

1. Hedo to the rescue Kevin Garnett strained an abdominal muscle during his reunion with the Timberwolves on Friday night and on Sunday the Orlando Magic took advantage of the injury.
