Doc Rivers: Kevin Garnett ‘is our life’
As for KG (Kevin Garnett), who continues to epitomize the commitment, the concentration and the attitude of this Celtics team, he had missed two free throws earlier, which completely rankled him. So when he stepped up to the line with 8.8 seconds left and his team up two, he was damn well going to knock his shots down.
Yeah, that’s right. (Expletive) that.
“[KG] is our life,” his coach, Doc Rivers, said. “He does so many things that don’t have numbers [attached] to it.”
Things like keying defensive stops and grabbing 50-50 balls off the glass. Things like imploring his teammates to stay strong and to stay together.
