Kevin Garnett Is MIA So Far

The Boston Celtics’ biggest problem as the Miami Heat start to take control of Game 2 of the Eastern Conference finals is that Kevin Garnett hasn’t done anything. The Celtics big man has just six points and four rebounds, and has barely been involved in the third quarter.

The Celtics probably should try to get Garnett a post touch, but to the Heat’s credit, they’ve defended him well. Udonis Haslem has done a very nice job fronting him, and whichever Miami wing has been positioned on the baseline has provided help to prevent the lob pass to Garnett over the top.

No matter what, though, the Celtics need more from their backbone.
