Kevin Garnett is not as dominant as he used to be. That’s not news, and that’s not a problem. He’s 37 years old, and he’s in his 19th season. Brooklyn Nets coach Jason Kidd has a 20-25 minute cap on his playing time. Garnett can still be effective, but no one expects him to be a superstar for this team. On Tuesday, though, his play was worrying. For those who grew up watching him, it was saddening.

In Game 1 of the Nets’ second-round series against the Miami Heat, he missed the only two shots he took in his 16 minutes. It was the first scoreless playoff game of his career, and Brooklyn lost 107-86.
