Kevin Garnett’s 1st 20-Point Game Came Against Jordan & the 72-10 Bulls
It took two and half months for the straight outta high school rookie to get his first 20-point game, but it couldn’t have came against a better team: On February 27th of 1996, Kevin Garnett had 20 points and 8 rebounds against Michael Jordan and the 72-10 Bulls. “Da Kid” connected on 10 of 16 shots and also had three steals and couple of highlight dunks in his breakout performance.
Despite 20 by him and another 20 by Isaiah Rider, the TWolves still took a 21-point L behind 35 from his Airness and a 24 rebound performance from the Worm.
KG would have four more 20-point games during his rookie campaign, which included a season-high 33 vs the Celtics.
