    Nets' Mirza Teletovic admits game felt 'new' after lengthy absence

    Nets forward Mirza Teletovic made his return to the court in Game 2, playing four minutes while grabbing two rebounds and failing to score a point. He said after the game that trying to catch up to the speed and intensity of a playoff game was difficult after his lengthy absence, the New York Post reports. "I tried to go out there and not [make] too many mistakes," Teletovic said. "I guess I made some. I realize that when you come back after three months everything is new to you." Teletovic was sidelined for three months after being diagnosed with blood clots. Coach Lionel Hollins said he wasn't on the court enough Wednesday to make an impact either way. "There was nothing to evaluate," Hollins said. "If he'd made two shots, I would say he made two shots that really helped us. But he wasn't out there long enough to do anything else." Teletovic averaged 8.5 points and 4.8 rebounds during the regular season. He'll likely be in line for limited action in Game 3 against the Hawks Saturday.
