Celtics Notebook: Perk hears unfamiliar Garden sound

Back when he was Kevin Garnett’s bodyguard, Kendrick Perkins would be serenaded from the stands for this kind of behavior.That changed yesterday when the Cavaliers center set what he admitted was an illegal pick on Jae Crowder late in the second quarter of the Celtics’ 101-93, season-ending loss. Kevin Love had just left the floor after his left shoulder was pulled out of its socket during a lock-up with Kelly Olynyk, and some saw Perkins’ act as retaliation.
