Kevin Garnett Has Been Key to Celtics' Success While Turning Back the Clock

If you've watched Kevin Garnett in these playoffs –especially Game 6 of the first round and Game 1 of the second round — you'd think you had stepped into a time machine.

The Celtics big man is playing like it's 2008 right now, and it's come at the opportune time for the C's.

His defense is pretty much always stellar, but Garnett has poured in 57 points over his last two games to pace the Celtics.
