KG hasn’t had a game like that since his rookie year, as the Boston Herald details: “Kevin Garnett’s performance against the Wizards last night sent people scurrying for the record books – though he would have loved to save them the trouble. The Celtics forward had eight points in the 86-83 victory, but they were all from the line. KG went 0-for-7 from the floor, failing to secure a field goal for the first time since his rookie year – Jan. 27, 1996, at New York. His previous high for missed shots without a make was five. But Garnett, who had 22 points in Philadelphia two nights earlier, had 10 rebounds and was a major presence on defense down the stretch.”
