Here are the full highlights of Kevin Garnett's 18 point night versus the Timberwolves yesterday. KG finished with 10 rebounds and 4 assists to go along with his 18 points. Kevin Love had the following to say about KG after the game: "[KG] does whatever he needs to do in order for his team to win & that sums up Kevin Garnett to me. He’s intense. He’s KG. He’s a guy that defensively he’ll clamp on you. He didn’t leave me when he was out there more than once tonight, really clamped in. I think he hit big shots early, set the tone, set screens, and pokes and prods and elbows and jabs." Video courtesy of OfficialCelticsHD

MINNEAPOLIS Kevin Love sat. The lead was 19, the clock was ticking down, and the power forward had his 36 points, his 13 rebounds, as much as he could have asked for.

Oh, was he ready...
