BOSTON -- Boston Celtics forward Gerald Wallace is sidelined for the rest of the season after undergoing arthroscopic surgeries on his left knee and left ankle. Terrance Ferguson Jersey. Wallace played in 58 games in his first season with the Celtics before the operations on Tuesday. The 13-year veteran averaged 5.1 points and 3.7 rebounds in 24.4 minutes after coming from Brooklyn as part of the deal that sent Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett to the Nets. The 6-foot-7 Wallace started 16 games, averaging 7.3 points, 4.3 rebounds and 33.3 minutes. The operations involved repairing a torn meniscus in his knee and cleaning out bone spurs in his ankle. Paul George Jersey . Rajon Rondo had 18 of Bostons season-high 38 assists and the Celtics committed just seven turnovers in a 118-111 win over the Detroit Pistons on Sunday night. Detlef Schrempf Jersey . As each game passes (each has played close with the exception of last night) it becomes clearer just how evenly matched these two teams are and how one mistake, or one bad inning, is likely to sway the result.PRETORIA, South Africa - Reeva Steenkamps cousin sobbed while testifying Wednesday how she first heard on a car radio that Oscar Pistorius had killed his girlfriend.Kim Martin said she had hoped to God that Pistorius was cheating on her cousin and that the young woman he had shot at his home was not Reeva.They hadnt confirmed the name, they said his girlfriend, Martin recalled of the early-morning news broadcast. I was trying to phone her (Reeva) and she wasnt answering and I was screaming at my husband.Martin, who said she was close to Steenkamp, went to her mothers house where she learned her cousin had been killed by the Olympic athlete.The doors opened and my mother was hysterical and thats when I knew it was true, Martin said. That was for me the end of the world. Everything was just a blur from then onwards.The emotional testimony during Pistorius sentencing hearing caused the judge to rule a brief adjournment when Martin began crying. Her testimony dealt in detail for the first time at the months-long trial with the life of Steenkamp, a 29-year-old model and law graduate, and the impact her Valentines Day killing had on her family.We were all, why, why, why Reeva? Martin said. She said Steenkamps killing ruined our whole family.Steenkamp was shot multiple times by Pistorius through a toilet cubicle door in his home in the pre-dawn hours of Feb. 14, 2013. The runner was found guilty of culpable homicide for negligently killing her, but acquitted of murder after claiming he mistook Steenkamp for an intruder.Martin was the first witness called by prosecutors for sentencing and the first relative of Steenkamp to give testimony in the case. Martin said she wanted to be Reevas voice after Steenkamps parents, Barry and June, decided they were too emotional to testify.As Martin told of the moments she first learned Steenkamp was dead, Pistorius hunched forwarrd in the courtroom and put his hands over his face. Custom Oklahoma City Thunder Jerseys. Steenkamps parents, who have attended much of the trial, appeared to be crying.Judge Thokozile Masipa will decide Pistorius punishment and has wide latitude. The judge could order the former star athlete to pay a fine and go under house arrest, or she could send him to prison for up to 15 years.Pistorius lawyers have argued for a correctional supervision sentence with periods of house arrest. Social workers testifying for the defence recommended he not be sent to prison, partly because of his disability as a double amputee. Prosecutors reject that and insist that Pistorius, 27, should go to jail, saying his negligent actions on the night he shot Steenkamp with his 9 mm pistol have left a broken family.Steenkamps mother June was on medication after the killing and father Barry sat in a corner of his house crying, Martin testified. Martin said that she is receiving trauma counselling and her children need therapy.Steenkamps parents said in a statement earlier Wednesday that the death of their daughter — who had helped them with money — had left them in financial difficulties and their lawyer resorted to approaching Pistorius for help. The athlete had paid them around $10,000 in monthly instalments between March 2013 and last month, but they now want to pay it back, they said.The Steenkamps also said they turned down a separate settlement offer of $34,000 from Pistorius and would no longer pursue a civil claim after the criminal trial because they didnt want his money.Martin testified that Steenkamps parents were never rich, but father Barry was particularly proud of his daughters law degree and wanted her to concentrate on becoming a lawyer.Martin said: Her dad told her she must work hard because her life can end in a split second.___Imray reported from Stellenbosch, South Africa. Stitched Jerseys Cheap Jerseys Free Shipping Wholesale Jerseys 2020 Cheap NFL Jerseys Wholesale Cheap Jerseys 2019 Cheap Jerseys Wholesale Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
