Kevin Garnett Ejected After Headbutting Dwight Howard

Kevin Garnett Ejected After Headbutting Dwight Howard

Elsa/Getty Images(BROOKLYN, N.Y.) -- Kevin Garnett and Dwight Howard were battling for position under the basket in the first quarter Monday night -- perhaps are little too hard -- and Garnett ended up getting ejected for being literally hard-headed.

Garnett took exception to Howard's pushing and shoving and bounced the ball off of the Rocket's center's head. With just under eight minutes to go in the first quarter, the two began to exchange words and Garnett took the crown of his head to Howard's jaw.

The NBA league office will review the incident and hand down any disciplinary action if it is deemed necessary.

Back to the action on the court: James Harden lit up the Nets defense as he put up 30 points. Howard would add eight points and five rebounds.

Houston would go on to win the game 113-99.

Nets Will Continue to Bring Deron Williams and Brook Lopez Off the Bench

Nets Will Continue to Bring Deron Williams and Brook Lopez Off the Bench

Bruce Bennett/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- The Brooklyn Nets are playing better of late with high-priced players Deron Williams and Brook Lopez coming off the bench, so that's where they'll stay for now according to head coach Lionel Hollins.

Williams is making $19.75 million this season but has been used sparingly since returning from injury a few games ago. He played just 17 minutes in the team's win over the Sacramento Kings on Monday night.

Lopez, who is making $15.7 million this season, also has seen his minutes drastically reduced recently. He's averaged just over 12 minutes per game the past four contests.

According to Hollins, this is a trend that Nets fans may want to get used to seeing.

“Why you keep asking about Deron and Brook? This is the Brooklyn Nets,” Hollins told the New York Daily News. “Yes, they were starters, they’ve been out and if you note, while they were out we started playing better and winning, so why would I go back and change the lineup now?”

At 14-16, the Nets currently hold the 7th seed in the Eastern Conference.

Bucks Outlast Brooklyn in Triple Overtime

Bucks Outlast Brooklyn in Triple Overtime

Jed Jacobson/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- In his first trip back to the Barclays Center since leaving the team, Jason Kidd and the Milwaukee Bucks defeated the Brooklyn Nets 122-118 in triple overtime on Wednesday. The Bucks (7-5) trailed by eight at halftime but rallied to force extra play.

In the first overtime, Milwaukee actually had a chance to win the game. With the game tied at 105, Brandon Knight picked off a pass from Joe Johnson with 2.9 seconds remaining. Knight then sprinted the length of the court and missed a wide-open layup to send the game into the second overtime.

However, that memory did not stay with Knight long. The guard would end up hitting a game-tying three late in the second overtime, and the game-clinching free throws in the third. Knight finished with 18 points and eight assists in the win. 

"My teammates trusted me to make the next shot to force a third overtime, so that's really what it's all about," Knight said, "and we stuck through it as a team."

The Nets (4-7), who lost their fifth straight, were led by a season-high 26 points from Brook Lopez.

Jason Collins Retires

Jason Collins Retires

Jeff Gross/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- Jason Collins, who became the first openly gay player in NBA history retired on Wednesday, reports Sports Illustrated.

Collins was signed by the Nets last season after announcing he was gay in February.

"In order to understand why I am so lucky to be sitting here today as a person who is finally comfortable in his own skin, you need to understand how basketball saved me," Collins wrote on ThePlayersTribune.com. "I needed to live the past few years as an openly gay basketball player in order to be at peace retiring today."

"There are so many people I have to thank for helping me on my journey," Collins wrote. "My family, friends, and fans empower me each and every day. My teammates, coaches, and the Brooklyn Nets organization gave me an opportunity. The entire NBA family, where the leadership of David Stern and Adam Silver created an environment that made me feel safe to step forward. My agent, Arn Tellem, who is like the cool uncle everyone wishes they had."

Collins also had a message for his supporters: "All the fans in New York who would see me walking on the street and say, 'Hey Collins, good luck tonight!' or 'We are proud of you!' To all the people who came out before me and helped clear the path for others to follow. And the many countless individuals who have fought and sacrificed for human and civil rights, period. Thank you."

Collins, 35, will be in Brooklyn on Wednesday and officially announce his retirement before the Nets play the Milwaukee Bucks.

Brook Lopez Returns, Nets Dominate Thunder

Brook Lopez Returns, Nets Dominate Thunder

Mike Stobe/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- For the first time in nearly a year, Brook Lopez stepped on the court in an NBA game. The Brooklyn center scored 18 points and pulled in six rebounds as the Nets beat Oklahoma City 116-85 in their home opener on Monday night.

"I can't put it in words," said Lopez, who broke his foot last December and was forced to miss the rest of the season. "It was great to be back out there. I've missed it for a long time and our team definitely took care of business tonight. Our guys make it easy."

Lopez was 6-for-10 from the floor in 24 minutes as the Nets (2-1) notched their biggest home-opening win ever. The center's 18 points was tied for the team-high, with Alan Anderson also pouring in 18 off the bench. Deron Williams added 17 points and nine assists as Brooklyn opened up a 32-19 lead after the first quarter, due in large part to going 5-for-7 from three-point land.

"It was just good to see him have that bounce, explosion," Kevin Garnett said of Lopez's return. "We know he's having foot problems. He's playing through a lot, man. And like I've said, if we're going to be anything, we're going to need the big fellow."

The Thunder (1-3) have been suffering their own injury issues with both Kevin Durant (foot) and Russell Westbrook (hand) unavailable. Reggie Jackson did make his season debut for Oklahoma City after missing the first three games, and scored a game-high 23 points in the loss.

Nets Center Brook Lopez Out 10-14 Days with Foot Injury

Nets Center Brook Lopez Out 10-14 Days with Foot Injury

NBA via Brooklyn Nets(NEW YORK) -- Brooklyn Nets fans are holding their breath as center Brook Lopez will miss the next 10-14 days to deal with a "soft tissue" injury in his surgically repaired right foot.

The team will give him some time off to recover, but his status for the start of the season is in question now.

"X-ray and CT scan studies done Thursday in New York reveal no fractures or bone injuries," Nets medical director Dr. Riley Williams II said in a statement. "Brook has been diagnosed with a mild midfoot sprain and is likely to be out for approximately 10-14 days."

Lopez' health will go a long way in determining just how good the Nets can be this season.

When healthy, Lopez is one of the more offensively skilled centers in the NBA. In his six-year career, the 26-year-old Lopez is averaging 18.0 points and 7.3 rebounds per game.

He's battled injuries in recent years though. He played in just 17 games last season and played in just five games three seasons ago. He's missed 134 games over the last three seasons.

Jason Kidd Writes Letter to Bucks’ Fans

Jason Kidd Writes Letter to Bucks’ Fans

Mike Ehrman/Getty images(NEW YORK) -- Now that he's officially the new head coach of the Milwaukee Bucks, Jason Kidd took to the team's Twitter account to further endear himself to the fans.

"Over the past couple days, I've been asked: 'Why Milwaukee?' My answer is simple: there is no place I'd rather be," Kidd wrote. "Over my twenty years in the NBA as a player and a coach, I have always been impressed with the level of support that Bucks fans have given this team, in good times and bad.

With a talented roster, new owners that are passionate about being successful in Milwaukee, and a great fan base, we have the makings of something special here and I'm proud to be leading this new era of Bucks basketball."

After a stellar 19-year career, Kidd became the coach of the Brooklyn Nets the season after he retired. The team had massive expectations placed on them, but Kidd could only take them to the second of the playoffs.

In an attempt to gain more power, Kidd reportedly demanded to be named the president of basketball operations. The team balked at Kidd's demands, and he was promptly traded to the Bucks for two second-round picks.

ESPN: Bucks Make ‘Trade’ for Nets Head Coach Jason Kidd

ESPN: Bucks Make ‘Trade’ for Nets Head Coach Jason Kidd

Mike Ehrmann/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- Things have gotten quite interesting for the Milwaukee Bucks in the past week. The latest development, according to ESPN, is that the Bucks will send a 2015 and 2019 2nd round pick to nab coaching rights to Jason Kidd.

This is quite a surprise considering this time a year ago, the Nets had just hired Kidd to coach the team after he retired from playing in the NBA.

The move was seen at the time as a surprise because Kidd had zero coaching experience at any level, and was handed the job for a Nets team expected to contend right away due to their veteran roster.

The Nets struggled right off the bat, but managed to finish with a 44-38 record and won their first-round playoff series.

But Kidd reportedly demanded to become the team's President of Basketball Operations, and the team wasn't willing to give him so much power with so much inexperience.

This past season, the Bucks finished with the worst record in the NBA at 15-67. The team was fortunate enough to draft former Duke star Jabari Parker with the second overall pick in last week's draft.
