Kevin Garnett had 12 points, five rebounds and one steal while navigating foul trouble on Sunday, as the Celtics hung on to defeat the Clippers.
Prior to Sunday's game a rumor surfaced that the Clippers might want to trade for KG, dangling a package including Caron Butler and Eric Bledsoe. KG has a no-trade clause but he might conceivably agree to a deal that landed him alongside Chris Paul and Chauncey Billups on a championship contender, and the Celtics may opt to start the rebuilding process this season. Though intriguing, it's nothing more than speculation. KG is on a roll over the past few weeks, and he'll be leaned on even more without Rajon Rondo dictating the action offensively.
