Game Story

EAST RUTHERFORD, New Jersey (Ticker) -- Stephon Marbury was outshined by fellow New York high school star Lamar Odom in the fourth quarter but got a second chance thanks to Keith Van Horn.

Marbury took full advantage of the second chance, scoring six of his 33 points in overtime while Odom scored none of his career-high 34 in the extra session as the New Jersey Nets posted a 102-96 victory over the Los Angeles Clippers.

"I always thought we'd win," Marbury said. "We played with a lot of poise and heart in the second half and we made the big play when we needed to make them."

Odom was a force in the fourth quarter, erupting for 16 points, including a 3-pointer that gave Los Angeles a 91-88 lead with 27 seconds remaining.

After Van Horn missed a jumper, teammate Lucious Harris was fouled and converted both free throws, pulling the Nets within 91-90 with 12 seconds left.

New Jersey's Johnnny Newman immediately fouled Eric Piatkowski, Los Angeles' best free throw shooter at 83 percent. Piatkowski hit the first but missed the second.

Van Horn grabbed the rebound and the Nets called time. Maligned for scoring a total of seven points in New Jersey's previous two losses, Van Horn took a pass from Marbury and hit a short fadeway jumper in the lane with three seconds left to tie the game at 92-92.

"I think that when you're in that situation, with that little time on the clock, you want to help your team get to overtime," Van Horn said. "The only thing that was in my mind was making a good play and I was able to do that."

Marbury hit his first two shots in overtime -- an 18-foot jumper with 3:35 left and a 15-foot turnaround with 2:40 remaining -- to give the Nets a 96-92 lead. He added a pair of free throws with 24 seconds left to seal the win.

Meanwhile, Odom missed both his shots and committed a turnover as the Clippers scored just four points, all by rookie Quentin Richardson, in the extra period on 2-of-7 shooting.

"We had the game won then Van Horn just hit a shot," Odom said. "It's frustrating. I had 34 points and we lost. We just have to keep focusing on closing these games."

Richardson hit a layup to pull the Clippers within 96-94 with 1:46 remaining. Harris was fouled by Odom and converted both free throws to restore New Jersey's four-point lead.

Odom and Corey Maggette committed turnovers on Los Angeles' next two possessions and Marbury and Harris each converted two free throws in the final 24 seconds. Richardson closed the scoring with a dunk.

Los Angeles slipped to 0-5 on an eight-game road trip that began before the All-Star break. The Clippers fell to 0-8 in overtime this season and are on the verge of a pair of NBA futility marks for overtime games.

The 1979-80 Golden State Warriors dropped eight overtime games without a win and 10 in a row over two seasons, both records.

"I thought, eventually, probability would catch up with us and we'd win an overtime game sooner or later," Clippers coach Alvin Gentry said. "Stephon came out, made shots and made a lot of big plays. We kept making mistakes, unforced errors and if you do that, you get into trouble."

Marbury, named to his first All-Star game in his fifth NBA season, was Parade Magazine's National High School Player of the Year in his senior season at Lincoln High in Brooklyn, New York in 1994-95.

The 6-10 Odom, who is in his second NBA season, played for Christ the King in Queens, New York before he transferred to Redemption Christian Academy in Troy and was Parade's Player of the Year in 1996-97.

Both were considered sure NBA stars in high school and have delivered on their promise. In their first meeting this season, Marbury scored 28 points and Odom 24 in the Nets' 86-85 win at Los Angeles on November 20.

On Sunday, both appeared to be sleepwalking in the first quarter when the Clippers raced to a 25-12 lead. Cherokee Parks scored nine of his 14 points in the quarter while the Nets hit just 2-of-17 shots from the field.

The Clippers increased their lead to 43-23 on a three-point play by Odom with 5:39 left in the second quarter. The Nets closed the half with a 14-6 run as Marbury scored seven points in the final 3:43, pulling New Jersey within 49-37.

"In the first half, our spacing was off and we let these guys come up and down the court and beat us," Nets coach Byron Scott said. "The second half, we responded and came out and did a good job, especially on the defensive end. The first half was probably the angriest I've ever been. I just don't think we came out ready to play."

Marbury scored 12 points in the third quarter when the Nets shot 61 percent (14-of-23) and outscored the Clippers, 36-20.

A layup by Van Horn gave New Jersey its first lead at 61-60 with 5:41 left. After Odom connected on a 3-pointer, New Jersey's Evan Eschmeyer dunked off a pass from Marbury, who converted two layups to give New Jersey a 67-63 lead with 2:44 to go.

After Los Angeles pulled within 70-69 on a running jumper by Parks, Marbury closed the quarter with a 3-pointer.

The Nets led 75-69 on a pair of free throws by Aaron Williams with 10:36 left in the fourth quarter. But the Clippers scored the next six points on a layup and free throw by rookie Keyon Dooling, a hook shot by Odom and a free throw by rookie Darius Miles.
