Kevin Garnett was in a pretty good mood ahead of Game 3.

The Nets big man even cracked multiple smiles during his face time with the media at the Nets’ practice facility on Thursday.

“I’m expecting the crowd to be very very into it, uh, Brooklyn-style, and I’m looking forward to us taking care of home,” he said.

Garnett wants to see if that crowd can measure up to Toronto’s raucous supporters, especially after all of the talking that has gone on.

“Very eager. Very eager. Very eager to see how they respond to the F-Brooklyn. Very, very eager to see how they respond to those kids sitting in our arena,” Garnett said, we believe referring to Raptors general manager Masai Ujiri.

“I don’t know if that’s going to be ... We’ll see. Put it like that. We’ll see.”

Garnett said he wasn’t sure exactly how the crowd would behave.
