Kevin Garnett Suggests Hawks Owner Should Stick to ‘Check Books and Bottom Lines’ (Video)

Kevin Garnett had himself a night on Thursday night, helping the Celtics send the Atlanta Hawks home for the summer.

The Celtics forward had a little extra motivation, though, something that he wasn't afraid to share with the world in his postgame news conference. Following his incredible performance — 28 points and 14 rebounds in Game 6 — Garnett admitted that Michael Gearon Jr.'s comments about Garnett being the dirtiest player in the league gave him a little "extra gas" on Thursday.
