Kevin Garnett returns to Nets lineup after 19-game absence (VIDEO)

Apr 6, 2014, 12:25 AM EDT

Nets head coach Jason Kidd maintained all along that whenever Kevin Garnett was ready to return, he would be reinserted into the lineup without hesitation.

Garnett made Kidd look like a genius on Saturday, as the veteran was done struggling with back spasms and returned to action against the Sixers, appearing to be anything but a step behind.

The minutes were limited, but Garnett exceeded his expectations for production in the time he had on the floor. Garnett finished with 10 points on 5-of-6 shooting, to go along with four rebounds, an assist, a steal and a blocked shot in just 13 minutes of action as Brooklyn held off the Sixers 105-101.

    Ride him til he breaks. You might make it to the concession stands.

    It’s been an odd season for Kidd and the Nets – but all you have to do is make the playoffs and get hot and healthy at the right time

    I’d love to see Garnett and Pierce get a final ring – I don’t see them bearing the heat but who knows what will happen
