Continued: Pekovic leads Wolves to 110-100 victory over Celtics

Garnett is out because of ankle inflammation. Rondo’s season is over because of a torn knee ligament. Pierce missed Monday’s game due to a personal matter and the Celtics — seventh in the East when the night began — lost for the seventh time in nine games.

“Yeah, vividly, about five years ago,” Boston coach Doc Rivers said when asked if he remembers what life is like without those three. “It has been a while. I think it has happened before, I’m not even sure. I know we played a couple games without Ray [Allen], Paul and Kevin. But that was resting guys.”

Curtains for KG?

Could Monday’s game have been Garnett’s last chance to play in Minnesota? Probably not, but…

“Every year we don’t know if it’s his last time,” Rivers said. “Obviously, I hope not and we all hope not, but you never know with Kevin. Every summer he’s deciding if he’s coming back or not. I would hope that it isn’t because you would want him to play his last game here.”

Etc.

• Former Celtics center Greg Stiemsma didn’t see a second of action against his old mates on Monday. Mickael Gelabale and Chris Johnson didn’t play for the Wolves either.
