Notorious pest Kevin Garnett used a Lance Stephenson special to try and provoke Indiana's David West last night. It was super effective.

Garnett pulled off a nice combo: Foul West away from the ball, talk loudly, and blow into the dude's face while no one's looking to put him over the edge. One free point for the Nets!

After the game, West compared Stephenson's tactics to Garnett's. From Mike Mazzeo of ESPN New York:

Everybody was kinda looking at me trying to figure out what made me push him or whatever, but he blew in my face, an aggressive blow at that. I think Lance's was more sensual, you know? That was an aggressive one.

Despite Garnett's best efforts, the Pacers still beat Brooklyn, 110-85.
