Kevin Garnett would not admit it outright, but he also did not dismiss the notion that Friday’s 109-107 win by the Brooklyn Nets over the Boston Celtics may have been his final game at the TD Garden.

“At this stage, it’s always somewhere lurking in the back [of my mind], whether I admit it or not,” Garnett said in the visitor’s locker room after the game. “Being truthful with you, sometimes I think about it. I saw Paul [Pierce] the other day in New York and we had a conversation. At this stage, when you know that things are, not taking for granted, but more appreciated, it crosses [your mind]. I wouldn’t lie about that.”

The 38-year-old had an uneventful six points and four rebounds in 17 minutes, but received plenty of admiration from the Garden crowd in his second and final trip to the Garden this season as a Brooklyn Net.
