Celtics are underdogs vs Knicks, says KG
Perhaps it’s just gamesmanship. Or maybe it is a player honestly assessing a No. 7 seed, the Celtics, going against a No. 2 seed, the Knicks, in the NBA playoffs. But Boston’s Kevin Garnett Friday anointed the Celtics as series underdogs while proclaiming the Knicks the better team.
“We are,” Garnett said before Celtics practice at Columbia when asked which team is the underdog in the series starting Saturday. “The Knicks are the better team. They’ve deserved it. They’ve earned it and rightfully so. (Carmelo Anthony) is playing unbelievable. J.R. (Smith), that whole team. They’re playing with a lot of confidence. That’s what you want going into the playoffs.”
