KG's blog: 'Had to bring my hard hat'

By Chris Forsberg



Boston Celtics forward Kevin Garnett checked in with another entry on his ANTA shoe blog following Sunday's Game 1 win over the New York Knicks. The post includes Garnett's thoughts on Boston's rally, including his role in the two key offensive plays at the end of the game.

Writes Garnett, "We did what we were supposed to (win at home), but still felt good to come back and lock up the win."

Here's the full entry:
Game day today! Energy is off the chain! Shoot around went fine and we finished game planning for their team. Got to the arena early and did my normal routine. Guys seemed excited and focused.

Game was up and down. Emotional roller coaster.... We got down early and at the half was down [12].
We don't quit and we grinded all game. Had to bring my "hard hat" to work today and just kept grinding. Down 3 with less then 40 seconds left in the game, coach ran the fake cut to the alley oop to me. Rondo make a hell of a pass! One of the guys took the pictures of the jumbotron replaying the dunk. (ENJOY IT! 2 Angles)

Down still 1, [Paul Pierce] played some great defense and then it set up for a play where I NEEDED TO get Ray open. RAY RAY hit the big shot... a three no less... We did what we were supposed to (win at home), but still felt good to come back and lock up the win.

Game 2 on Tuesday. Sometimes, I get too hyped and move too quickly. Feel it best to relax and get into my game. JO really stepped up and I felt as though the flow was better for him.
