Celtics’ Kevin Garnett nearing a points milestone

Kevin McHale said Friday that his former pupil with the Minnesota Timberwolves, Kevin Garnett, will reach the 25,000-point mark as a “pass-first’’ player. The Celtics’ Garnett entered Monday night’s game against Charlotte just 198 points from being the 16th NBA player to reach that mark and he admitted that he always has been a reluctant scorer.

“I guess when you’re in the league as long as I’ve been in it you are going to accomplish some things,” he said before the game. “I guess some day it will mean something to me. At this point, it’s relative. I’m sorry, I’m not into the individual stuff. Obviously I’ve accomplished some things.”
