Ticket to Game Six

With the clock ticking down and the Knicks climbing back into the game, Kevin Garnett showed a series of pump fakes, got airspace from Tyson Chandler, and made a deep two point jumper to put Boston ahead by seven with 48 seconds to go. Garnett was pushing 40 minutes of playing time, but his energy and focus was there when the Celtics needed it most. The "Big Ticket" finished the game with 16/18 and a team high 5 dimes. Bass, Pierce, Terry, and Green all played very well last night, but the key to the win was the play of Kevin Garnett. He was aggressive on both ends of the floor, playing as hard and as tough as one could ask of him. Garnett single-handedly put Kenyon Martin and Tyson Chandler in foul trouble early in the game and that was a huge factor in helping the C's grab their second win.

After the game Garnett spoke with Comcast's Greg Dickerson about the win, simply saying "We out here scrappin'". Classic KG. That's simply what the Celtics have done in the last two wins. The games haven't been pretty or flashy, just grit-and-balls/bar fight/scrappy wins and if that's how the C's need play in order to win I'm all for it.

For the third straight game KG has pulled down at least 17 boards, a stat I find pretty remarkable given his age and the late season feet issues Garnett has been dealing with. Rebounding has been one of the Celtics glaring weaknesses all season and its great to see KG step up his work on the boards. (It would be nice if Bass would follow along.) To top off KG's sudden extreme boost in rebounding, he is leading the league in RPG in the postseason with a ridiculous 14.6 boards per contest. Amazing. Whether this is his last season or not, Garnett is obviously giving everything he's got to this Celtics team here in the Playoffs.

Let's take Game 6! Go Celtics!
