KG's blog: 'We gotta finish strong'

Writing on his ANTA shoe blog, Celtics forward Kevin Garnett checks in with thoughts on Boston's recent play and the latest injury to Shaquille O'Neal.

Writes the exclamation point-happy Garnett on Shaq: "[O'Neal] was killin[g] it, then he pulled up! Damn, hurt again! That sucks! Keep rooting for him to get right!" KG adds, "We gotta finish strong, so we can get right for the playoffs."

I know I haven’t written since the Spurs game, so my bad. It was the first game for JO in a while, so was pumped to have him back with us. Spurs game was like a playoff game. We “hit” each other back and forth and both teams took the shots. Rondo was super intense and brought it! Great TEAM effort and body feeling good. The guys got me in the right spot to make shots and so I had to knock them down. Great energy in the lockerroom.

Bad part was the back to back in Atlanta. We started out ok, but then started to get out of what we do. We weren’t getting stops and taking early shots. Frustration is definitely setting in for some of the guys, but we’ll meet and get it together.

Tonight we had Detroit and the BIG Diesel was back! It was great to have him back and seeing him ball. He was killin it, then he pulled up! Damn, hurt again! That sucks! Keep rooting for him to get right!!! We won the game, obviously, but lost Diesel. This time of year we are trying to get ready for the playoffs, but it’s tough to get rest when we have 7 games in the next 10 days! We gotta finish strong, so we can get right for the playoffs.

Gonna drink a ton of Zico with all these games, 2 more back to back games at the end of the season.
