Here are a few other videos of The Big Ticket's introduction.

The energy in the arena started even earlier, though. Timberwolves fans were fired up from the moment Garnett and the Wolves came out for warmups as evidenced in this video from the Pioneer Press' Andy Greder.

As for the game itself, Garnett scored five points and grabbed eight rebounds in less than 20 minutes, but his presence helped inspire Minnesota to rally from an early 15 point deficit to a 97-77 victory over Washington.
