“You guys are going to hear it first tonight: We’re going to rest Kevin the rest of the season. Breaking news,” Brooks quipped. “I don’t know how to answer that other than he’s going to play and he’s going to play a lot of minutes. It hasn’t affected us one bit. Obviously when you’re 24 and have the energy he has, and the ability to play at the level he has, minutes is really not a factor. We’ve never gone into a playoff series and said, `Man he’s tired. He’s beat up. We’re not going to be able to get anything out of him.”
