“I’m not going to lie, I didn’t see the half of it,” Garrett said Akron Beacon Journal. “At the end of the third I went to sleep. I was like, [16-3], new team, maybe he’ll get them next week. I went to sleep and woke up. Before I went to sleep, I was with myself [physical therapist] John, I said, ‘Maybe you should wake up. There is a chance that he will bring them back. You let me know in the morning.’ So I woke up and there was a text waiting for me like ‘You won’t believe’. I say yes, I do.
Garrett said he watched the comeback in the morning and was impressed with what Mayfield did.
“I mean, it was [impressive]” Garrett said. “And going back to look at it, he was putting some coins in there for guys to go early in the game, until it clicked. So I have nothing against the guy now. I wish him success wherever he is.
