Celtics Morning Joe: KG: 'We went back to traditional basketball'

ESPN Boston

 

Kevin Garnett told ESPN's Chris Broussard after the Celtics' Christmas win over the Nets that the C's "went back to traditional basketball" in toughening up against Brooklyn. "We played firm. That's what we've got to be," he said.

Garnett also talked about his work with Jared Sullinger, who had a big game against the Nets, and the Celtics' continuing effort to find consistency.



I know all of you have seen the video of KG, or you watched the interview after the game. The Celtics found an ounce of pride. They put their heads together, and they worked as a team. Like I said after the game. We didn't need, or see Pierce score 40 points. We got scoring from every where yesterday. KG, and Pierce just played yesterday. They allowed this game to be about the team.They didn't worry about numbers, and they often never do.  When both KG, and Pierce score 8 points apiece. While Green scores 15, and Sully 16 you know something may have changed.


Rondo was the leading scorer yesterday for the Celtics, and I think that needs to happen more often. Pierce picked up most of the assists yesterday, and that's a great thing to have with your small forward. The Celtics are smart, and although  they have no idea on who they are yet. We have hope because they're are smart. And they know what it takes to win.

The Celtics will hit the west coast, and they'll take on the Clippers on Thursday. For me this was my finals prediction. The Clippers are making me look good right now on my pick, but the Celtics not so good. It will be a big test for the Celtics, as almost every game will be until they put together a bigger string of wins.

Good call - KG and PP with 8 apiece, Green and Sully with 16, Rondo with 20. Good signs. I loved Pierce's passing. He looked like Rondo at times. And IKG was unleashed on D, with Collins down low. Collins is giving us some of what Perkins gave us, but the fools are continuing to call out Perkins for being a scrub. That scrub is playing on one of the best teams in the league right now. But he's a scrub.

That's what we've expected,or thought we get. KG,and Paul running the team as teachers,and helping the Celtics establish Green,ans Sully. Great win,unlike past wins. This game had something different to offer.

It felt special. This looked like a real team, finally. But the Nets are struggling, so it's hard to know how much to take it to heart. And that third quarter was heinous. Just heinous. Yeah, they came back in the nick of time to close the game out, but the Clips won't likely give up the way the Nets did, assuming the Cs get a lead, and then proceed to hand it back.
