Nets trio proves healthy as postseason opens
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

The Nets rested a slew of starters late in the regular season, and they were healthy enough to play in Saturday's postseason opener against the Raptors Saturday as a result.

Guards Joe Johnson, Deron Williams and Shaun Livingston were all in the starting lineup and playing their usual roles Saturday, after getting time off to rest their various maladies. Johnson led the trio with 45 minutes played, but Williams logged 39 and Livingston played 29 minutes of his own in the 94-87 win.

Williams and Johnson tied for the team lead with 24 points scored, though Johnson was more efficient, shooting 8 of 13 from the field compared to Williams' 8-for-20 mark. Livingston brought up the rear with 10 points on 4 of 6 shooting as well.

With extra time off, the Nets should be able to keep their sometimes fragile roster healthy in the postseason. Johnson led the team with 79 games played this season, while Livingston appeared in 75 games and Williams play 64.

Alan Anderson available, not needed in tuneup
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

Nets guard Alan Anderson was in uniform and available to return from an abdominal injury for Wednesday's game against the Cavaliers, but he was never needed in a 114-85 loss.

Anderson ended up missing the final four games of the regular season due to the injury, but appears healthy enough to contribute for the postseason. He finishes the regular season averaging 7.2 points, 2.2 rebounds and 1.0 assists per game in 78 games.

by Joe Polito | CBSSports.com

Johnson had a suprisingly productive year in a crowded Brooklyn lineup. He averaged 15.8 points and 3.4 rebounds per game on the season.
