Seeing as how we’re so close to playoff time, I thought I should pass on the big news of the day. Boston is going to “shut down” KG over the last two weeks of the season so he can rest his ailing knee. He might play in a couple of games, but it will be very limited.
I’m still not convinced the Cs are done, mostly because I think they can beat Orlando in a seven-game series and Cleveland will have to get by (my prediction) Charlotte in the first round and either Atlanta or Miami in the second, both of which could be lengthy series’.
But if Garnett is still this banged up, I don’t see how Boston is the same team.
