Could it be? The Nets (29-29) have won three in a row, and will look to move over the .500 mark for the first time all season. They are 12-2 in their last 14 games at home.
No KG: Kevin Garnett (back spasms) will miss his third straight game. The Nets will certainly have their hands full with Zach Randolph (17.3 ppg, 10.3 rpg) and Marc Gasol (13.5 ppg, 6.5 rpg). They have thrived playing a small lineup, though their rebounding has obviously suffered. Of course, they can make up for that by having active hands and getting a lot of steals, just like they did two days ago against Chicago.
