Kevin Garnett had an up-and-down game — 8 for 21, 10 rebounds, 18 points — scoring seven of his points after catching three lobs passes when his defender, J.J. Hickson or Antawn Jamison, foolishly tried to either front him or three-quarter him on the wrong side. Otherwise, KG missed four layups (with two of them getting blocked), had the ball slapped out of his hands while he was trying to figure out what his next move would be, was consistently late on his defensive rotations, and failed to latch on to a pass from Rondo that hit him in his hands.
But the Celtics were never really Garnett’s team. For sure, he always screamed the loudest, and was the team leader in self-aggrandizing chest-thumpings, yet the Big Ticket rarely played well down the stretch of important games — a situation that was/is well known around the league.
