There may not be a consistent spot in the Nets’ rotation for Mirza Teletovic, but he’s doing everything he can to earn as much playing time as possible.

Teletovic had his latest impressive showing in Friday night’s 103-99 Nets road loss to the Pistons, scoring all 17 of his points in the second half on 6-for-10 shooting, including 5-for-6 from 3-point range, and helping the Nets claw their way back to within two points in the game’s final seconds after trailing by as many as 21.

“He was great,” Nets coach Jason Kidd said afterward. “He’s been ready when we call upon him to come in to give us a spark, and that’s what guys do when they come off the bench.

“You never know when your name is going to be called, and we responded in a positive way. He picked his teammates up tonight.”

Teletovic, who is averaging 6.0 points and 3.7 rebounds in 16 games this season, largely has played well this season whenever he has gotten a chance to play, with most coming while Brook Lopez was sidelined with a sprained left ankle. But because the Nets have a four-man big-man rotation of Lopez, Kevin Garnett, Andray Blatche and Mason Plumlee that has worked quite well whenever they all are healthy, that usually means Teletovic sees fewer minutes — it is hard to play more than four bigs consistently.

When the Nets were hampered by several injuries on the wings — especially when both Paul Pierce and Andrei Kirilenko were sidelined — Kidd gave Teletovic some minutes at small forward, but that’s not something the Nets want to do on a consistent basis.

So, with his minutes now coming sporadically and Lopez likely to return to the court Monday against the 76ers, that leaves the 28-year-old Teletovic to have to try and stay mentally prepared and ready to play at a moment’s notice.
