Hey… remember when Kevin Garnett couldn't hit crap?
Yeah… that's not really the case anymore. Kevin Garnett shot 11-12 for 24 points in a 92-85 win against the Miami Heat. Tack on the 6 for 6 from the other night and KG is 17-18 over the past two games. Not bad.
11-1 run in less than 3 minutes late in the fourth to take 89-83… and they finished it off to leave Miami with a 92-85 win.
Once again, we were treated to further proof that the Celtics don't lose when Rajon Rondo decides to take over games. Also… we were subjected to further proof that when the Celtics slack off, they could look as bad as anyone in the league (courtesy of Michael Beasley's monster 3rd quarter).
Once again, the Celtics manage to out-rebound an opponent (35-27) but get dominated on the offensive boards (11-6 Miami). That's going to kill them. They can't get doubled up on the offensive boards like that. They also can't score 12 points in a quarter (the 3rd) and get away with it every night.
This was one of those games where both teams could make a case for bad officiating… which I guess means it was equally bad on both sides. That's all you can ask for, I guess. At least… that's the absolute bare minimum you can ask for.
Oh… and Sheed got another tech tonight. That's 7 on the season.
