Four days after they lost to the Knicks in Madison Square Garden, the Wolves are back in New York for a Sunday matinee game against the Nets in Brooklyn.
Of course, they had a home game against Sacramento in between, but they're back on the road for games today and Monday night in Boston.
For Kevin Garnett, both games are a return to the only two places he has played in the NBA other than MInnesota.
The guy for whom Garnett was traded, Thad Young will start for the Nets at power forward.
Sam Mitchell said before today's game that Garnett will play normal minutes against the Nets, so we'll see what that means for Monday's Celtics game. Garnett has been held out of the second game of most back-to-back situations this season.
When asked about the deal that sent Young to Brooklyn and Garnett back to Minnesota at the trade deadline last February, Nets coach Lionel Hollins said, " I don’t even think about it anymore. It's hard to go back and say what I felt at the moment. I enjoyed coaching KG. The move was great for KG, the move was great for us. We got a younger, quicker player and we changed how we played and KG got to go back to Minnesota and he's still playing and he's got future opportunities there."
