Kevin Garnett Returns to Minnesota

Kevin Garnett Returns to Minnesota

Elsa/Getty Images(MINNEAPOLIS) -- Power forward Kevin Garnett will return to the team with which he began his career.

Garnett agreed to drop his no-trade clause and he accepted a trade from the Brooklyn Nets to the Minnesota Timberwolves for Thaddeus Young.

The trade will give Garnett the chance to play out what might be his 20th and final NBA season as a member of the team that drafted him back in 1995 out of high school.

Garnett guided the Wolves to the only eight playoff appearances in the franchise's history, and he won the MVP in 2004 while leading them to the Western Conference Finals.

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.

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.
