Doc Rivers offered to give Kevin Garnett the night off against the Chicago Bull and the big man who would load the Celtics on his back and carry this team through hell and back refused to rest. Garnett is not going to sit and rest when there is work to be done. Garnett knew there was work to do and this work horse got it done against the Chicago Bulls last night. Garnett played a great 4th quarter, he scored 8 of his 12 points in the 4th quarter to give his Celtics a 2 point margin of victory over the Bulls.
Garnett had 11 rebounds in the game and it could be said that with out his great effort the Celtics who can be refereed to as the walking wounded would have lost the defensive struggle last night. Garnett just keeps bringing it. Year after year you hear whispers of Garnett retiring. Sooner or later he will leave the game. Until he does the Celtics will continue to have a warrior named Kevin Garnett.
