"I'm being totally honest, knowing that these guys probably needed this game to make the playoffs, and with us having so much disappointment this year, teams spoiling our thing, it was a little but of us wanting do that to another team," forward Kevin Garnett said. "We were motivated by that factor. ... It didn't take a lot of pep talk preparing for this game."
