Notes: Andrei Kirilenko (back) out

NEW YORK -- A couple notes off Brooklyn Nets head coach Jason Kidd's pregame availability:

• Forward Andrei Kirilenko (back) remains out. "We'll see how he feels tomorrow," Kidd said.

• The Nets will go with their same starting lineup: Deron Williams, Joe Johnson, Alan Anderson, Mirza Teletovic and Kevin Garnett

• Kidd expanded on his comments about the Nets becoming "comfortable losing."

"The comment is just, you can't sit around and just accept losing [or] become complacent if you're winning. I think as a whole we are all held to a higher standard because we all believe that we can win. Hopefully the guys are ready to come out and protect home on Christmas."
