Late in the first half of the Celtics  game with the Utah Jazz , Kevin Garnett  came down awkwardly favoring his right knee. He left the game and tried to come out and play in the second half, but coach Doc Rivers  shut him down. Brian Scalabrine  started the second half in his place.
TNT’s Cheryl Miller reported that the Celtics are calling it a “strained right knee.”
We’ll have more after the game.
