The Brooklyn Nets (13-12) have needed every second of their best players to claw above .500, but head coach Jacque Vaughn acknowledged the current pace is not sustainable.

“In an ideal scope of things, we don’t want to play Kevin that amount of minutes going forward. And hopefully we get to a point where Ben’s minutes aren’t where they were previously, Ky’s minutes aren’t where they were previously,” Vaughn said before the Nets’ sixth game of their seven-game homestand Wednesday. “[We hope] that we have the depth that we can space and share some of those minutes amongst a few guys going forward and trending towards what we want to get to once playoffs come around.”
