The 21-25 Brooklyn Nets host the 36-13 but depleted San Antonio Spurs on national TV tonight.

Starting lineup: Deron Williams, Shaun Livingston, Joe Johnson, Paul Pierce, Kevin Garnett.

Injury report: The Nets welcome back Joe Johnson (knee tendinitis) to their starting lineup, along with Andray Blatche (hip) and Andrei Kirilenko (calf) to their bench. Johnson had missed one game, Blatche two, Kirilenko three.

But it’s the Spurs who are really hurting: they’ll be without Tony Parker (back), Manu Ginobili (hamstring), Tim Duncan (rest), Kawhi Leonard (finger), and Boris Diaw (food poisoning). They’ll start Nando de Colo, Cory Joseph, Danny Green, Marco Belinelli, and Tiago Splitter tonight.
