In pregame introductions cheers rained down over old friend Kevin Garnett. After contributing a 6 point, 4 rebound effort in the win, Garnett spoke with Jessica Camerato. If KG's appreciation wasn't evident from his crowd salute, it was in his words:

Though Garnett remains undecided on retirement, Celtics coach Brad Stevens gave his two cents on the matter:

Sure, Garnett's caliber of play has dipped since being sent to Brooklyn, but there is little doubt his leadership and intensity alone wouldn't be coveted by many teams if he chose to play another season. On the other hand, if this was Garnett's final game in Boston, the mutual respect was quite clear. And it should be.

Celtics fans wouldn't have it any other way.
