Welcome back, Kevin Garnett. We'll get to see how coach Kidd plays it, with Mason Plumlee coming off the bench, and how "rusty" Garnett actually is. I suppose there's no better time to get him back in the lineup than against a 76ers team that shouldn't pose much of a threat for the Nets -- at least not in the paint.
