The post-All Star break portion of the schedule didn’t get off to such a great start last night, as the Celtics lost Kevin Garnett to a knee injury in the first half in the Utah, and ended up losing the game to the Jazz, 90-85.
The severity of the injury is not completely known yet, though from Frank Dell’Apa it appears KG could’ve returned, but the Celtics erred on the side of caution with him. Steve Bulpett calls it a knee strain. Paul Flannery says that the Celtics lost this one because they couldn’t figure out a way to score down the stretch.
With two trades in the last week, including Patrick O’Bryant yesterday, Bulpett has the Celtics clearing cap space and roster space. Jim Fenton also looks at the trades and what might be next for the Celtics. Catch more game stories and analysis of yesterday’s move by browsing CelticsLinks.com.
