    Summary of 2 articles · Updated Oct 9, 2013
    Tyshawn Taylor scored 16 points, Paul Pierce had more fouls than points, and Jason Kidd was a winner in his coaching debut as the Brooklyn Nets opened their preseason with a 111-106 overtime victory over the Washington Wizards on Tuesday night. Coach Jason Kidd, Kevin Garnett, Paul Pierce and Andrei Kirilenko all debuted for the new-look Nets in a 111-106 preseason victory over the Wizards in Washington on Tuesday. The remade Nets showed off new additions Kevin Garnett, Pierce, and, of course, Kidd, transitioning to a coat and tie after 19 seasons in uniform. The lavish Nets opted for a soft launch into their preseason schedule, resting Deron Williams and playing Kevin Garnett, Paul Pierce, Brook Lopez and Joe Johnson just 12 minutes each. Granted, Washington’s roster isn’t particularly deep, and its frontcourt rotation is stretched by the loss of Emeka Okafor to injury, but there was just no answer for Kirilenko, who posted 11 points, five rebounds, five assists, three steals and a block in 24 minutes.
