Kevin Garnett Sends Inspirational Video to Celtics Prior to Tip-off

Kevin Garnett recorded an inspirational video message aimed at pumping up the Celtics after they lost the first two games of their first-round series against the Chicago Bulls. Boston players suggested it set the tone for their 104-87 Game 3 triumph on Friday night.

After being shown the video by teammate Avery Bradley, Celtics guard Isaiah Thomas decided to play it for the team before tipoff at the United Center. In typical Garnett fashion, the video was high energy and rife with expletives. But for a Boston team in need of a jolt given not only its lackluster play but Thomas’ coping with the tragic death of his sister, the message had the intended effect. “Everybody was kinda pumped up. I almost felt like he was in the locker room with me again,” said Bradley, the only player on Boston’s roster who played alongside Garnett.

Restricted free-agent center Mason Plumlee has agreed to a three-year, $41 million deal to return to the Denver Nuggets, league sources told ESPN.

Agent Mark Bartelstein of Priority Sports and Denver president of basketball operations Tim Connelly reached agreement on the deal late Sunday night, league sources said.

With the deal, Denver was able to avoid Plumlee signing a $4.6 million qualifying offer for the 2017-18 season — which would’ve allowed him to become an unrestricted free agent next summer.
