VIDEO: GreenLights of KG vs OKC

Jay February 24, 2012 Uncategorized 2 Comments

After losing by 15 points to the Oklahoma City Thunder and seeing their losing streak get extended to 5 games, there was a lot of chatter about team building losses and the like.  OKC shredded the Celtics defense in the first half to the tune of 72 points but the C's made a game of it by chopping the lead down to 6.  Unable to replicate the earlier season comeback magic in Orlando, they ultimately lost.  What was also a little lost in the aftermath was KG's performance.

KG returned from a 2-games absence due to personal/family issues and logged 38 minutes while dropping 23 points, grabbing 13 boards and swatting 2 shots.  It was his season high in minutes played (he logged 37 twice: opening day at NY and 1/11 vs DAL) and has been the team leader in minutes played amazingly.  While he grimaced several times after dunking and/or fouling, it was very encouraging to see him have a solid game.

He was still setting a ton of illegal screens and was very active on defense as usual.  Check out the video compilation below of his game vs OKC.

    take away the first week or two of the season and KGs having an under the radar all-star caliber year

    def…he could average 18 and 9/10 if he could play those type of min every game. Hes got basically 8 boards in 30 min, but obviously due to his age its smarter to let him rest.
