KG: ‘It doesn’t help when the crowd boos’

A frustrated Kevin Garnett [1] took exception with the boos that rained down on the parquet during Boston’s 106-96 loss to the Washington Wizards [2] on Friday night.

“It’s just hard, especially when we get to the end of the first quarter and we are down, 30-17, and everybody starts to hit – not the panic button – but tries to pick it up in different ways and when it doesn’€™t come together or you miss some shots, and it doesn’€™t help when the crowd boos and all these other things then you have to grow tighter together,” Garnett said. “It’€™s not easy. We know this journey and duration in which we are traveling is not going to be an easy one, and tonight was a difficult one. I wouldn’€™t say we hang our heads but every individual is trying to figure out what to do and what they can do individually to try to pick it up.’€

The Celtics [3] heard it from the TD Garden crowd as the Celtics fell behind by 28 in the second quarter.

“Well, I mean we are at home, we look for our fans to give energy, to give us a spark when the times are tough,” Garnett said. “It doesn’t help when the boos happen but we are a group of veterans and we are a group that is a real team. We aren’t fair weather.”
