Recap: Vintage KG

RedsArmyAdmin October 16, 2010 Uncategorized 5 Comments on Recap: Vintage KG

Kevin Garnett got me giddy tonight.  He had everything working in his just under 20 minutes of play… finishing the game with 20 points, 4 rebounds, 2 steals and a block.  He was dunking, shooting and hounding guys on defense.  It was classic KG… complete with him looking and sounding spry (there were at least a couple of expletives caught by the tv mics).

The C's were down double digits at one point in the 3rd quarter, but they whipped off a huge run and outscored the Knicks 53-39 in the second half to finish with a 97-84 win.

Some other highlights:

  • Rajon Rondo was a beast… especially after taking an elbow to the cheek.  He finished with 2 points (on 1-3 shooting)… but 9 assists and 8 rebounds.
  • Paul Pierce had a quiet 16 on a very efficient 6-11 shooting. 
  • Big Baby had a nice stretch… finishing with 15 and 7… but he was a game high +20.  He was on the floor for that entire double-digit comeback.  
  • The battle between Von Wafer, Stephane Lasme, and Mario West was pretty much a draw between Wafer and Lasme…with West still on the outside looking in. 

Mike Gorman made an interesting statement during the game.  He said it's possible the C's carry 14 players into the season instead of 15.  That would mean instead of 2 of the last 3 guys mentioned being cut…. we could see all 3 cut. 

Gorman could just be guessing… but Gorman has been around a long time.  And he's around this team all the time.  He typically doesn't say things out of turn.

    sooo happy for kevin garnett, and i say give stephon lasme a chance to prove himself, so i say carry lasme to the season, and let VON latch somewhere else, which is easy for him, && Mario West dont need to play in the league if he keeps playin the way he has !

  • Old KG is back. Hope he can continue this production at the regular season and come playoff time. Just please no injuries
    Wafer was also shooting the ball well. And Rondo was just amazing. He was almost all over the place for those rebounds. Overall, good game.

  • Yessir. Looking damn good. The docs did say it would take a full year for him to really be 100%. It’s a blessing that he was able to go all of last year without a major setback. I am excited for Ticket, but more excited for our bench. Man..Nate and Quis are tearing it up and Delonte hasn’t even got started yet…

    Loved the defense in the 3rd quarter. Pierce got that T and proceeded to destroy Gallinari.
    The Knicks have sucked for so long I practically stopped hating them….these last 2 in preseason have renewed the rivalry for me. Cant wait to get this thing started for real….also wishing the preseason had them facing at least one decent team.
    Von is playing better but I think it’s a shame if Lasme doesnt make the team. Hope it doesnt come down to Von having a guaranteed contract.

    Wish I was able to catch this game tonight. Sounds to me like its all systems go with Kevin. Which means we are seriously dangerous. Which means I am happy.
