I've been scouring the web this morning for any and all updates on KG's knee. Sore? Re-injured? Out for regular season? Out for playoffs? Career-ending? Amputation? We turn to Marc Spears for the answer:
An NBA source said Garnett still has discomfort and tightening in his knee. Rivers said Garnett will likely miss tomorrow's game against Oklahoma City, but solid practices could allow him to return Wednesday against Charlotte.
Doc added that if the playoffs started now, KG would be playing. So let us all take a deep breath together and just relax. He will be fine.
Glen Davis was great last night. Sure he had 19 pts, 12 reb but his effort really set the tone. Not to get all Zen on you this morning but it was like KG's spirit lived in Baby's body for the game. The team fed off of Davis' energy.
How about the rebirth of Starbury? A season-high 11 points on 4-of-5 shooting, made 3 of 4 3-pointers, and dished out 2 assists. He looked comfortable and confident.
Rajon Rondo had subpar game (9 pts, 5 assists). But his performance had more to do with a sandwich then his ankles:
"It was something I ate in the first half," Rondo said. "I didn't have a lot of energy. I shouldn't have eaten that before the game. I had Chick-fil-A with all that barbecue sauce and honey mustard. It didn't settle in too good. So I came in [at halftime] and had a couple bananas and some juice and I felt better in the second half."
I've heard of Chick-fil-A but never knew what the hell it was. Thanks Rondo.
