KG returns to the Garden
This Monday night, the 19-22 Brooklyn Nets will come to TD Garden to play the 15-30 Celtics. Coming with them is star guard and former Celtic Kevin Garnett. Garnett came to the Nets over the off-season from Boston with Paul Pierce. Garnett helped the Celtics with a Championship back in ’08. The 2004 MVP has not been putting up great numbers this season, scoring 6.9 PPG and just under 7 rebounds a game, which is a career worst. Can KG up his game vs. his old team on Monday? We will just have to see.
Of course there is also the teams themselves. On the Celtics, Point Guard Rajon Rondo is back after a injury that has sidelined him for 11 1/2 months. Even though he is on top of the All-Star voting, Rondo performance has far from All-star. He has only been getting 5.3 APG since he has returned. Bright spots on the Celtics include Brandon Bass, Kelly Olynik, and Jeff Green, who only a few games ago scored 39 points. But if they got killed by the Thunder with Kevin Durant and Russel Westbrook out, how will they be able to handle the Nets. For Brooklyn, Brook Lopez leads the team with 20.1 PPG. Others Great Players for the Nets are Joe Johnson and Deron Williams. Whichever way it goes, Monday Nights game will be great!
