2. Kevin Garnett is playing like it's 2007
Tell me you saw this Kevin Garnett coming in December and I'll call you a liar (if you really did: speak up!). Garnett has played out of his mind in the second half of the season, his 24-point, nine-rebound, 11-of-14 effort against the Bulls serving as the primary example. Garnett's shooting 52 percent since the All-Star break, and his rebound average in that time is approaching nine. Beyond the statistics, the eye test shows more energetic Garnett on the glass and on defense. Whether that's due to his change to the center position or something else entirely, there's no doubting the turnaround.
