Ryan: Allen-Garnett exchange ‘predictable'


During both teams' season opener, Ray Allen made his way towards the Celtics bench and tapped Kevin Garnett on the on the shoulder, but KG did not respond.
"You guys know KG. Did you expect him to react?" Allen said after the game. "I don't take anything from it. Kevin is, he's an intense competitor. On the bench, he's in a different world, a different zone. The five years I played with him, you have to respect that."
"Understand I am an intense person," Garnett said. "Other than that, I drew a blank. I just saw the Heat (jersey) in front of him. Obviously he's on the other side. I just try to play the game, man."
On Wednesday's Sports Tonight, Bob Ryan and Rich Levine analyzed the exchange.
