The Boston Celtics beat the Minnesota Timberwolves last night in Rajon Rondo’s return from suspension. Rondo came back last night to gain 17 points and 11 assists. Boston ended up winning 104-94.
The real talk of the game, however, was Kevin Garnett. Garnett, having been on the Celtics for five years now, has had a 17-year career in the NBA. Minnesota is the only other team Garnett has played for. He looked motivated throughout the entire game to show the Timberwolves what they’ve been missing.
Garnett scored 18 points and 10 rebounds, beating the Wolves for the eleventh straight time as part of the Celtics.
When coach Doc Rivers was asked if Garnett still liked to play against his old team, he didn’t hesitate. “What do you think?” he said.
Paul Pierce commented, “I think he just accepts the challenges of playing against some of the top players in the game.”
Garnett was pleased. “We established the post, I thought, early on,” he said. “I thought defensively we played with a lot of energy. We made them go to their second and third options, which is something they don’t like to do.”
