    Kevin Garnett will miss his 15th straight game because of back spasms, and the Brooklyn Nets also will be without Andrei Kirilenko against Cleveland on Friday night. The Nets were without Kevin Garnett for a 15th straight game because of back spasms and Andrei Kirilenko for a third in a row because of a sprained left ankle, but had six players score in double figures and shot 55 percent from the field. The Brooklyn Nets say Kevin Garnett is hoping to return from a back injury next weekend or during their trip to Florida on April 8-9. The 37-year-old Garnett hasn't played since a Feb. 27 victory in Denver. Paul Pierce scored 17 of his 22 points in a flawless first quarter, and the Nets pulled away in the second on the way to their 12th straight home victory, 108-97 over the Cavaliers on Friday night. They are 2 1/2 games behind the Raptors for first place in the Atlantic Division and 1 1/2 behind the Bulls for the No. 4 spot in the Eastern Conference.
