The Celtics dropped their 2012-13 opener to the Heat and former teammate Ray Allen, 120-107. Before the game Allen made his way to the Boston bench and was essentially ignored by Kevin Garnett. Allen tapped Garnett on the shoulder as he sat on the Boston bench and Garnett didn't acknowledge Allen. "I was just trying to focus as much as I could. I am such an intense person," Garnett said. "It was a blank. Obviously he's on the other side. It's time to play the game, man."
