Garnett continues to turn back clock with vintage game
Kevin Garnett was nowhere to be found following Boston's 115-107 win over Miami.
Not to worry.
Garnett has a thing for showing up right on time for the C's, which against the Heat, meant the fourth quarter.
The 6-foot-11 veteran was having a pretty good night leading up to the fourth, but took his game - and with it, the C's - to another level in leading them to victory.
Garnett had 24 points for the game on 11-for-14 shooting. He was especially impressive in the fourth quarter, scoring 10 points on 5-for-5 shooting.
"That's what he does," said C's center Greg Stiemsma. "That's K.G., all day. We will take those looks any time he can get them, and he can get them whenever he wants. It gets us fired up."
Garnett was a central part to a blistering shooting performance by Boston, an unexpected development considering the Heat have one of the NBA's top 10 scoring defenses and field goal percentage defenses.
