KG Comes Through for Celtics

Boston Celtics/NBA(BOSTON) -- The 35-year-old Kevin Garnett showed on Sunday that he's still got that rookie hustle.

He scored 24 points -- matching a season high -- and ran up and down the court with no problems. The Celtics then went on to cruise past the Grizzlies, 98-80 for their fourth straight win.

"Everyone's acting like I'm 50 and out here on one leg," said Garnett.

"He was feeling good. It's a still a kids' game. He was having fun," head coach Doc Rivers said of Garnett. "He was having a ball playing today and you don't want to tell him you have to come in because the lights are on, so we let him play in the dark a little bit."

Garnett's teammate Paul Pierce, moved within nine points of Larry Bird on the all-time scoring list with his 21 point effort.
