BOSTON -- Kevin Garnett ran with a pack of wolves for 12 years in Minnesota. Now he wants to run with a pack of hyenas. Garnett implored his Celtics teammates to play like that intimidating African carnivore after the Celtics dropped a 99-88 decision to the Bucks on Friday. The flop embarrassed the Celtics, who were making their home debut for the 2012-13 season and were booed on their own court. "I was just letting all the new guys know what it means to be a 'C' and reiterating that, knowing the severity of putting this jersey on and everything that comes with it," Garnett said. "I won't go into what that is. That's none of your business. But I felt like I had to reinnovate that and [Friday] was the perfect night for that." Those wild hyenas do not have much time to lick their wounds, as they head to Washington, D.C., to play the Wizards on Saturday. That quick turnaround, Garnett said, was the only good thing to come out of Friday's game. Check of Garnett's full comments in the video above. Have a question for Ben Watanabe?
