Should we be concerned?
Hopefully this is nothing to worry about. It's probably just a brief anomaly in a long grinding season. But in the last two games at Oklahoma City and Charlotte, Kevin Garnett has shot a combined 7-29 from the field. If you include the 4th quarter and overtime of last Friday's victory over the Hawks (in which he went 1-6), KG has made only 8 of his last 35 field goal attempts; 22.9%. During that same stretch he's also 3-14 (21.4%) on his patented just-inside-the-top-of-the-key jumper.
After last night's debacle in Charlotte Doc Rivers commented that he wished he'd given Garnett the night off along with Paul Pierce. Doc also suggested that KG's poor shooting of late was mainly the fault of the team as a whole:
“We’ve got to get him a better rhythm. He’s been in a [bad] way now for a while now and that’s more on us. We have to get him the right shots and we’re not do a very good job of that.”
Garnett's 5 points against the Bobcats was his lowest scorin...
