The Boston Celtics will be without Kevin Garnett for Tuesday night’s Game Two against the Miami Heat.
Celtics forward Kevin Garnett has been suspended for Game 2 of Boston’s first-round playoff series against the Heat for landing an elbow to the head of Miami’s Quentin Richardson in a fourth-quarter fracas during Saturday’s Game 1.
The announcement was made Sunday by NBA Executive Vice President of Basketball Operations Stu Jackson.
Richardson was fined $25,000 for his role in the altercation.
Losing Garnett is a blow to Boston, but they still have what it takes to beat Miami — at home — even without Garnett.
Is anybody else with me in hoping Paul Pierce lights Quentin Richardson up for 40 in Game Two? I read a funny tweet today from the normally helpless Skip Bayless: “If, as Quentin Richardson said last night, Pierce and KG are ‘actresses,’ that makes Q nothing but an extra.”
