Posted by: Howard Sinker Updated: December 14, 2012 - 11:11 PM

As time ran out in Friday's night game between Houston and Boston, Kevin Garnett reached out to his former boss with the Timberwolves, Kevin McHale.

It was McHale who drafted Garnett out of high school in 1995 when he was general manager of the Wolves and he was Garnett's boss, mostly as general manager and briefly as coach. It was McHale who engineered the trade that sent Garnett from the Wolves to Boston 5 1/2 years ago.
