GAME RECAP

Kerry Kittles poured in a season-high 31 points as the New Jersey Nets snapped a four-game road losing streak by posting its first win in Toronto, 108-100 over the Raptors.

Kendall Gill, Jayson Williams and rookie Keith Van Horn each added 18 points for New Jersey, which had lost three of its last four games. The Nets ended a three-game skid to the Raptors and won for the first time in four visits to Toronto.

"The first time in this arena, they beat us by about 25 (actually 15) points," said Williams. "This is the best win we've had here, it's our first win here. It was in the back of our minds how last year they put it on us three times. They're struggling this year and we are playing well. This is definitely a game we had to come in here and take."

Damon Stoudamire collected 19 points, six assists and six rebounds for Toronto, which was trying to win consecutive games for the first time this season. The Raptors have lost five in a row at SkyDome and own the league's worst home record at 2-16.

"They shot well, they shot the hell out of the basketball," said Raptors coach Darrell Walker. "I think we were a step slow tonight. That's why we got an L instead of a W."

The Raptors used an early 8-0 run to take their biggest lead of the game at 14-8 on Marcus Camby's jumper with 7:43 to go. But Williams highlighted a 23-6 burst with nine points, including a layup with 1:34 left that gave the Nets a 31-20 advantage.

Williams had 11 points and Kittles eight through 12 minutes as the Nets led, 33-24. The margin was built to 37-26 before Doug Christie's three-pointer capped a 9-0 Toronto spurt that narrowed the deficit to 37-35 with 6:26 remaining in the half.

"The guys were mentally prepared tonight," said Kittles. "I was trying to be more aggressive, making plays and having more energy on the floor. Running the court in the first half, I found myself open for a couple of threes. In the second half, I was just trying to take it to the rim and try to be strong."

"Kerry is trying to be more aggressive," said Nets coach John Calipari. "He is still learning, but I can't teach him to step up his physical play, he has to teach himself."

Williams had 16 points at the break to help New Jersey to a 51-46 edge. The lead again was extended to double figures late in the third period at 79-69, but Lloyd Daniels began an 8-0 surge with a three-pointer that cut it to 79-77 with 10 seconds left.

New Jersey led 81-77 heading into the fourth quarter and increased it to 88-79 after Van Horn hit a jumper and Lucious Harris converted a three-point play with 9:34 to play.

Kittles' three-pointer with 4:04 remaining capped another 5-0 run and made it 100-90. The Nets assumed their biggest lead at 108-96 with 49 seconds to go on Gill's jumper.

"It was a game that was there to be won," said Stoudamire. "They made some big shots down the stretch. They took us out of our offense. They were quick at each position. Everybody played well tonight."

Sherman Douglas chipped in 16 points and a season-high 15 assists for New Jersey, which only received seven points from its bench. Douglas was starting in place of Sam Cassell, who sat out due to back spasms.

"This was a good win for us, we played with good energy," said Calipari. "This was Jayson Williams' best road game of the year, energy-wise."

Christie tallied 18 points and Camby recorded 13 points and 13 boards for Toronto, which won the rebounding battle, 42-32, but was just 3-for-15 from three-point range.
