Despite being out-rebounded by 22 in Game 2, Garnett will not see an increase in minutes according to head coach Jason Kidd. KG has been on a minutes restriction all season long, and Kidd is committed to sticking to it. Four reserves played more than Garnett's 19 minutes -- Mirza Teletovic, Mason Plumlee, Andrei Kirilenko and Alan Anderson. To his credit, Garnett made the most of his playing time with 13 points, four rebounds and one block.
Shawn Marion rushed home for the birth of his child after the Mavericks 113-92 win over the Spurs.
Marion was great in the win, as the Mavericks avoided losing two straight to start the series. He notched 20 points on 8-of-10 shooting, and grabbed five boards in 35 minutes of action. Dallas will need more performances like this from Marion if they hope to upset the top-seeded Spurs, but clearly the best part of his night was making it home to see the birth of his child. Game 3 isn't played until Saturday and there is no indication that Marion is in danger of missing the game.
Jazz president Randy Rigby said that his team will look at "much more than 20" candidates to fill their vacant head coach position.
The candidates will run the gamut from "iconic players" to international and NCAA coaches, though Rigby said the Jazz haven't yet narrowed their list to any specific names. Whoever takes the job will have a major project on their hands, as Utah finished 25-57 last season and they could lose leading scorer Gordon Hayward in restricted free agency this summer.
