Kevin Garnett Not Worried About Celtics Collapsing

by May 24, 2010

KG was asked about the Celtics facing a similar fate to their hockey-playing friends in Beantown, and quickly shot down the notion. From the Orlando Sentinel: “The Boston Celtics don’t sound all that worried about becoming the first team in NBA history to lose a best-of-seven series after winning the first three games. But they’re also saying they won’t let up against the Orlando Magic. Kevin Garnett was asked before his team’s practice today if the Boston Bruins’ recent experience in the NHL playoffs serves as “a cautionary tale” for the Celtics. Earlier this month, the Bruins won the first three games in the Eastern Conference semifinals but lost the series to the Philadelphia Flyers. ‘This is not hockey, so I’m not even looking at that,’ Garnett said. ‘The Bruins are not the Celtics. The Celtics are not the Bruins. Apples and oranges.”’
