Kevin Garnett had this to say about the city he now calls home.

"Since day one, man, Paul [Pierce] told me that this city is unlike any other city when it comes to sports, and you give them a reason, they will jump on and they will be behind you even when you're losing or even when you're going through tough times. I got to see that.

I thought I played in front of some good crowds, and Boston has a special place. I'll be forever linked to this city, and I'm more than grateful for that."

  • OK, so there were two quotes of the night. Brian Scalabrine, who gave a press conference after the game to some amused media members, on whether it was hard for him not to be able to play in the Finals:

    "Maybe now you could say I didn't play a second, but in five years, you guys are going to forget. In ten years I'll still be a champion. In 20 years I'll tell my kids I probably started, and in 30 years I'll probably tell them I got the MVP. So I'm probably not too worried about it."

  • News, analysis and commentary from the following Boston Globe and Boston.com writers:
