The Boston Celtics lost to the Denver Nuggets 97-90 ESPN Boxscore Celticslife Game Recap Player Grades: I grade on a curve! Kevin Garnett: 12 Points, 9 Rebounds KG had a good game tonight, marred by several missed baskets late. He rebounded decently, passed well, and gave the team efficiency, if not volume. But late in the game he missed some layups, although whether or not he was fouled on those plays is questionable.
