I was concerned that he had done something else, because where he was grabbing his hip, but I thought it was his stomach, where you pull a stomach muscle or something. That’s why I think in a couple timeouts, I kept asking if was he OK. And he is, he’s good."
The Big Ticket will play in game 3, and he's expected to practice Thursday. I think KG has looked off for awhile now, and the poor shooting has been a clear sign of that. The refs didn't do him favors in game 2 when he started off nicely. KG is the key to the Celtics defense, and without him, this series could be a clean sweep.
