But, as Glen Davis and Ray Allen write in a diary for ESPNBoston, the playoffs are a different story.
Davis looks forward to playoff intensity.
We still have some season left to play. Then we have a whole new season coming up with the playoffs. When that happens, it doesn’t matter what you did in the regular season. It’s a whole different season.
In the playoffs, everybody’s intense. And it doesn’t matter to us who we play. Nope, I don’t care at all who we’re matched up against. But like I said, what I enjoy most about the playoffs is the intensity goes up higher. The competition level goes up extremely high.
Allen agreed with Davis, describing Davis as “a clown” and “a fun guy.” He then dubbed Paul Pierce “a clown” as well, but said that Kevin Garnett “is just as intense off the court as he is on the court.”
Is anybody shocked by that? Not me. I wouldn’t even be surprised to see Garnett crossing a street next to an elderly grandmother, unleashing four-letter words in her direction and pounding his chest as he beats her across to the other side.
