I was going to look it up this morning, but the Herald saves me the trouble:
KG went 0-for-7 from the floor, failing to secure a field goal for the first time since his rookie year – Jan. 27, 1996, at New York. His previous high for missed shots without a make was five.
But the coaching staff had the same optimistic take as Brendan did after the game last night:
“He never had any balance offensively,” said coach Doc Rivers. “But there was something I liked and Armond (Hill, assistant coach) said it in the game. I said, ‘Boy, Kevin’s struggling a little bit out there.’ And he said, ‘But not on defense. He looks active. He looks great defensively. He’s just out of whack right now offensively. Let’s not worry about that. The fact that he has it on the other end, if we’ve got to take one or the other, we would take that.’ ”
Optimism after KG’s worst offensive performance ever—this is the 2010 Celtics, for better or worse.
