It was just 12 minutes of an exhibition game, but [Brooklyn Nets forward] Kevin Garnett did something on Tuesday that he hadn’t really done in his previous 18 NBA seasons. He played with a good center.
Nets’ center Brook Lopez scored 15 points playing every one of his dozen minutes alongside Garnett, who had seven rebounds and four points. The 7-foot, 295-pound center showed off a sample of his offensive skills, hitting three shots in the lane and three mid-range jumpers while missing just once from the field. Lopez even scored on a dish from Garnett, who finally has a center worth passing to.
“The skill level is impressive,” said Garnett, who stands 6-foot-11 but plays power forward because of his wiry frame. “I haven’t been around a skill level like that playing with [a center] I don’t think ever.”
