Garnett, now 39, stuffed a powerful one-handed slam in Griffin’s face that sent the Minnesota crowd into a frenzy.
In the third quarter, Ricky Rubio and Garnett raced down the floor on a two-on-one fast break. Rubio found Garnett with a nice behind-the-back bounce pass and the veteran finished with authority.
Garnett finished the game with five points, three rebounds and two assists in 19 minutes.
