The Brooklyn Nets extended their winning streak to three with a 96-95 win over the Miami Heat on Wednesday. The win improved the Nets to 33-30, second in the Atlantic Division and fifth in the Eastern Conference. The Nets were once again without forward Kevin Garnett, who has missed the last seven games with a back injury.

Rod Boone, who covers the Nets for Newsday, tweeted the following regarding Garnett's status.
Mason Plumlee and Mirza Teletovic saw the bulk of the minutes at power forward against the Heat. Plumlee had four points and four rebounds in 22 minutes, while Teletovic had 17 points and four rebounds in 16 minutes. Expect Garnett to see his normal amount of playing time upon returning, which likely means a reduction of playing time for either Plumlee or Teletovic.

Garnett is in his 19th NBA season. The fifth overall pick of the 1995 draft, Garnett has played for the Timberwolves, Celtics and Nets.  The 37-year old is seeing the least amount of playing time and lowest scoring average of his career. He's averaging 6.7 points on 43.9 percent shooting in 21 minutes per game. In 1,372 games, Garnett is averaging 18.7 points and 10.3 rebounds per game.
