Kevin Garnett is taking some heat from Paul Pierce for taking all those inefficient long two-point shots so he’s expanded his range the last couple of games.

The Knicks challenge the C’s a number of times before good ball movement eventually finds a cutting KG for a layup. There’s a nice overlay here as Jeff Van Gundy unspools a conspiracy theory about the league punishing his brother’s 2010-11 schedule criticisms by forcing the Magic to play in Indiana on Super Bowl weekend this season.
