Kevin Garnett’s elbow on Q’ Richardson: defending Paul Pierce or getting revenge?
As HoopsVibe’s News section reported, The Big Ticket could soon be The Big Suspended.
Moments earlier, Heat post Udonis Haslem and Richardson knocked Celtics star Paul Pierce over with an aggressive trap. With Pierce on the floor and apparently injured, Garnett elbowed Richardson to the head, which set off a shoving match between the two teams. Both players were ejected and could be suspended for game two.
(Was Garnett defending Pierce by going after Richardson?)
(Or, was he settling an old score when Pierce and Richardson were thrown out of a game on January 24th, 2008?)
