KG’S DUNK A LOW POINT?

Brooklyn Nets’ Kevin Garnett turned back the clock last night with a “rare dunk” against the Sacramento Kings.

Via The Record:

The noise reverberating through Barclays Center was the loudest of the night. Everyone on the Nets’ bench stood and laughed — a mixture of joy and disbelief.

“I know I’m like 150 years in dog years, but I can dunk the ball,” Garnett said. “Damn, do I look that bad out there? This is a low moment for me, Everyone is like, ‘Ooh, you dunked.’ … My daughter was like, ‘Daddy, you dunked!’

“I ain’t dead.”
