KG Era Hits the Century Mark

The Boston Celtics have now played their first 100 regular season games during the Kevin Garnett Era. Their record is 82-18. The beginning of no other Celtic Epoch has been marked by a similar flourish.

Bill Russell, who, due to an Olympic commitment, did not play his first game until December 22, 1957, posted a record of 65-35 after 100 games. Dave Cowens posted a record of 72 up and 28 down. Larry Bird was 74-26.
