GreenLight Madness: Celtics Top 64 Plays: Final 4: (#2 Seed vs #3 Seed)

Jay July 27, 2011 Uncategorized Comments Off

The second Final Four matchup of the madness features two clutch plays by Kevin Garnett.  Both were against the New York Knicks in the playoffs, both were at home, one was during Game 1, the other during Game 2.  Ever since KG's arrival, he's been nothing short of a maniac on the court and aside from the 2009 playoffs, he has given Celtics fans a lot of great playoff memories.  These two plays will be tough to choose from, but it will be even tough for the winner to top the #1 seed in this tournament.

Seed #2: Rondo to KG Alley-Oop against NYK Game 1 – One of the most talked about plays during the early part of the playoffs, Doc Rivers works his magic yet again. Raise your hand if you were expecting that, at that point of the game. Yeah, I didn't think so either.


Seed #3: KG's Jump Hook vs NYK (ECQF Game 2) – Game 1 had already featured some amazing plays during a close game that the C's were able to win at the Garden. Game 2 did not disappoint in the drama department as the Celtics trailed the Knicks by one with under 20 seconds left. This time, there would be no alley-oop from Rajon Rondo, but KG would still be the go-to man. And this time, he does it with a strong, gritty, old-school back-down power move in the post that results in a jump hook that proved to be the game winner.
