Vince Carter had 23 points to help the Orlando Magic pull away early and cruise past the injured Chicago Bulls, 111-82, last night for a season-high seventh straight win. Matt Barnes added 14 points, and reserve Brandon Bass scored 13 in another blowout victory against a struggling team for the Magic. And one that was dealt a big blow. All-Star point guard Derrick Rose sprained his left wrist in a midair collision with Dwight Howard in the first quarter and didn't return for the visiting Bulls, the latest setback in a season that's quickly going sour.

Kevin Garnett is returning to the Boston Celtics after considering retirement, according to multiple reports. The forward will receive a three-year, $34 million deal, according to Yahoo! Sports. "The decision came down to whether KG wanted to keep playing," a source told the Boston Herald. "And once he decided that he did, it was going to be Boston. " The 36-year-old Garnett just completed his fifth season in Boston after 12 years in Minnesota. He averaged 15.8 points and 8.2 rebounds per game during the regular season, but upped his averages to 19.2 and 10.3 in the playoffs.

Dirk Nowitzki scored seven of his season-high 39 points in overtime and grabbed 15 rebounds as the Dallas Mavericks snapped a five-game losing streak yesterday with a 124-114 victory at New York. Josh Howard added season-highs of 31 points and 14 rebounds and had a pair of baskets in the extra session for the Mavericks (3-7), who were off to their worst start in a decade. They trailed for almost all of regulation, then tied it with a furious rally and didn't allow a field goal in overtime.

BOSTON - The Boston Celtics have once again assumed control of this tug-of-war Eastern Conference semifinal series with the 76ers and the turning point was 12 spellbinding third-quarter minutes from Brandon Bass. Playing every second of the third quarter, Bass scored 18 of his 27 points as the Celtics defeated the Sixers, 101-85, on Monday at a rocking TD Garden. Boston looked lethargic and actually was fortunate to be trailing just 50-47 at halftime. Then the Celtics turned up the intensity, outscoring the Sixers 28-16 in the third quarter, a period that has served as the true series barometer so far. The team that has won the third quarter has captured each game in this series.

The Boston Celtics made it official Saturday: Kevin Garnett is coming back as part of the team's efforts to keep key pieces after losing Ray Allen to the Miami Heat. More than a week after Garnett reportedly agreed to a three-year contract, the team announced that he, forward Brandon Bass , and center-forward Chris Wilcox had re-signed. Garnett, the Celtics' emotional leader, is the most important player returning, especially after Allen's decision to leave as a free agent broke up the Big Three (him, Garnett, and Paul Pierce )

ORLANDO MAGIC forward Hedo Turkoglu was suspended 20 games by the NBA on Wednesday after testing positive for steroids. The NBA said Turkoglu tested positive for methenolone, an anabolic steroid. He began serving the suspension Wednesday night when the Magic lost to the visiting Atlanta Hawks, 108-76. Josh Smith led the Hawks with 30 points, 10 rebounds and five assists. Jameer Nelson and Andrew Nicholson scored 10 points each for the Magic. Turkoglu said he took medication from a trainer in Turkey this past summer to help him recover from a shoulder injury and mistakenly neglected to check it against the league's list of banned substances.

THE BOSTON Celtics' injuries didn't affect what coach Doc Rivers always wants - solid defense. Paul Pierce and former Magic forward Brandon Bass each scored 19 points to carry the injury-riddled Celtics to an 87-56 win over Orlando last night. The Magic set franchise lows for points and field goals (16). "Defensively that was as good as you can get," Rivers said after his team matched a club record for fewest points allowed in the shot-clock era, also done last season against Milwaukee.

BOSTON - It wasn't youth that played the biggest role in the 76ers' not putting the hammer down on the Boston Celtics and returning to Philly with a series lead. And it wasn't the wise old vets in the green-and-white just tapping into their playoff experience, either. What did the Sixers in, what allowed Boston to take a 101-85 victory and a lead of three games to two at the TD Garden Monday was simply bad and, at times, stupid basketball by the visitors. The youth excuse can be thrown out there.
