Kevin Garnett "likely" to return tonight in Philadelphia

Updated: April 5, 2014



After last nights 15th straight home win Jason Kidd told reporters that tonight might be the night we finally see Kevin Garnett return to the Brooklyn Nets lineup in Philadelphia.

Kidd seemed optimistic about the possibility of Garnett playing for the first time in 19 games and it will be up to how he feels today after two workouts Thursday and Friday.

Garnett has been sorely missed in the Nets interior defense as they have been getting crushed inside lately but still managing to win.   The part that Brooklyn is missing the most is his emotional presence on the court and in the lockerrrom.

The players and coaches all concede that getting Garnett back in the lineup will certainly boost the teams moral and efforts.


“[Kevin] felt better today,” Kidd said Friday night following his team’s 15th consecutive home victory. “We’ll see how his plane ride goes, and then we’ll see in the morning how he feels. We would like to try to get him to go tomorrow, but it’s up to him.”

Asked if he is worried about reintegrating Garnett into the lineup, Kidd replied, “Nope. Kevin is a professional. He’s been doing it for a million years, so there’s nothing to worry about. He’s about the team. He’s about what we as a team stand for — unselfishness, defense — so he won’t have a problem with that.”[/quote_box]
