Garnett: Sixers are playing physically

WALTHAM -- The Philadelphia 76ers know Kevin Garnett. The veterans on the team have played against him for years while the younger players grew up watching him.

To Garnett, he isnt differentiating his opponents. In the Eastern Conference Semifinals series (tied 2-2), theyre all playing him the same.

All the big guys are playing physical, Garnett said prior to practice on Sunday. I cant tell one guy from the next. Spencer Hawes is playing just as physical as the young kid (Lavoy Allen). Its all the same.

During a postseason in which overall team play has been inconsistent at points, Garnetts performance from the field has been one of the mainstays for the Boston Celtics.

But after shooting 70.6 percent (12-17) in the C's Game 3 win over the 76ers last week, he struggled in Friday's Game 4 loss. He shot just 3-for-12 (25.0) while scoring nine points, breaking his four-game double-double streak.

Theyre very aggressive, said Garnett.

The Celtics will make an effort as a team to get Garnett going on offense. Garnett himself has watched, and will continue to review, game tape to make the necessary adjustments for a necessary Game 5 win on Monday in Boston.

Its critical, Garnett said of their upcoming contest. Nothing more, nothing less than that. Were at home. Weve got to win tomorrow.

While rumors were swirling about a possible Paul George deal on draft night, a bunch of people were tweeting at Jae Crowder, ready to send him to Indiana in a deal.

Crowder, who isn't shy on social media, liked the series of tweets, perhaps saving them as motivation for later.

Crowder had a couple noteworthy moments on Twitter this past season. The first was when he fired back at Celtics fans after the TD Garden cheered for Jazz forward Gordon Hayward. He also exchanged comments with Devin Booker after the Suns guard's 70-point game against the Celtics
