The Boston Celtics managed to rebound after a heartbreaking loss to the Philadelphia 76ers on Friday, which is something that Kevin Garnett didn’t manage to do. Literally.
The 6′ 11″ Garnett was held to a total of 0 rebounds in 23 minutes of play, as the Celtics beat the Sixers 92-79 at home.
Garnett had an overall solid game, shooting 9-11 from the field and leading the Celtics with 19 points.
Garnett has this to say about the stat:
“You know what, I’m looking for the statistician around here. And when I find out what he looks like, we might have some problems”
“I had a rebound in the first quarter. That’s bull—-, man. No, that’s f—ing bull—-. That’s all I’m going to say. I had a rebound in the first half, thank you. I think that’s an error, we’re going to fix that.”
Garnett wasn’t sincerely upset, but clearly believes someone made an error.
Last time Garnett finished a game without grabbing a single rebound was Jan. 21, 1997, when he was still playing for the Minnesota Timberwolves.
After yesterday’s win, the Celtics move up to 11-9 on the season.
