HANG TIME NEW JERSEY — New Brooklyn Nets coach Jason Kiddtold the New York Daily News last month that he might not play Kevin Garnett in both ends of back-to-back sets this season.

When you look at KG, probably no back-to-backs for him,” Kidd said Friday following press conference to announce the renovation of Nassau Coliseum. “Those are just topics we’re talking about, throwing around to keep these guy’s minutes down because we are deep. …you want to be fresh going into the playoffs.”
