Jason Terry will play tonight; Mirza Teletovic to start at power forward against the Pacers

Howard Smith-USA TODAY Sports

Jason Kidd announced that Mirza Teletovic will draw the start at power forward for the Nets tonight against the Indiana Pacers. Kevin Garnett will move back to center, where he played often last season in Boston. Teletovic has been the Nets' starting power forward in two games this season. In those games, he has scored a combined 29 points and grabbed nine rebounds on 10-of-21 shooting.

Kidd did not comment if Mirza would be the long term solution at power forward, but he is the short term one.

This move means that Paul Pierce will once again come off the bench, with Joe Johnson starting at small forward and Alan Anderson starting at shooting guard. Kidd stressed that he didn't want to break up the good things that Andray Blatche and Paul Pierce have been doing in their reserve roles as of late.

In other news, Jason Terry will be active for the first time since November 20. Kidd said that he will "manage (Terry's) minutes" tonight, and work him back into the rotation.
