Celtics vs. Lakers: Since they last met
Kevin Garnett is finally Kevin Garnett
You can tell by how he moves. The hard, fluid cuts. By his decision to once again pick up guards full court on defense, even though he doesn't have to. Garnett wasn't himself during the 2010 playoffs, and it showed. He was badly outplayed by Pau Gasol, an extension of a season in which he was outplayed by Rashard Lewis, Andray Blatche, and others. Despite his numbers being a little down recently, Garnett's averaging as many rebounds this year as he did in his first season with the Celtics. That should tell you something.
