The Boston Celtics have been together in, more or less, their current form since 2007. That’s the kind of experience that allows a team to know where everyone is going to be on the floor without even looking.
It may also be the kind of experience that’s the reason the Celts currently hold a 3-2 series advantage over the Miami Heat, one game away from the NBA Finals. As a veteran squad, the team also has the ability to “stay with it,” as described by Kevin Garnett — the ability to ride out a rough quarter and keep the score relatively close, as the Celtics did on Tuesday during the first quarter.
Watch the video above to hear Garnett ruminate on such subjects during Tuesday’s postgame interview session.
