Kevin Garnett back at Clippers practice as consultant

Kevin Garnett, Paul Pierce and Brandon Bass all stepped onto the court to get shots up at the training facility before the rest of the team, with practice about to begin for Doc Rivers’ team.

This wasn’t 2011 in Boston, but a rainy Tuesday morning in January 2017 at a Clippers’ practice.

Garnett helped the Clippers at training camp earlier this season, offering tips to Blake Griffin, rookies Brice Johnson and Diamond Stone and others.

Four months later, “The Big Ticket” was back giving advice to the Clippers, providing pre-practice tips in the post to DeAndre Jordan, something that will happen more often going forward.
