If you just looked at the box score of Sunday’s Boston Celtics 105 – 75 blowout loss to the New York Knicks, it would look like starting point guard Kemba Walker might have come back to action a little early.

And at least as far as finding his shot goes, you might have a point. But Walker wasn’t out 10 games into the 2020-21 NBA season because he went on a cold streak — he had been rehabbing a chronically sore knee in need of strengthening. And when it came to burst and speed, the UConn product looked like he was where he needed to be against the Knicks.

Our friends over at CLNS discussed exactly this topic at length on the latest episode of the “Garden Report” with Celtic champion Cedric Maxwell and Josue Pavon.

Check the video embedded above for yourself, and see if you agree.
