WALTHAM -- Kevin Garnett had some harsh words for Nets forward Kris Humphries following Wednesday night’s fight at TD Garden. Garnett was the recipient of a hard foul by Humphries that set off a scuffle between players from both teams under the Celtics basket. Garnett addressed the situation on WEEI’s Mut & Merloni show Thursday.
“When you watch film on the dude, he’s always extra,” Garnett said of Humphries. “We watched him on film the last time we played him in Brooklyn and he kind of gave Paul a similar type of foul, two hands, had something on it. Dude’s always been known to be out of control. He’s always tried to play the tough guy or whatever role you want to do it. It was a little extra, but it comes with the territory and it comes with the game. ... I guess they’re trying to hold up to the whole Brooklyn mentality.”
