Game Story

EAST RUTHERFORD, New Jersey (Ticker) -- In the final 2 1/2 minutes, the New Jersey Nets' Jason Kidd made up for three quarters of frustration.

Kidd scored seven of his 10 points in the final 2:17 and Todd MacCulloch continued to impress with nine points, 10 rebounds and three blocks as the surging Nets posted an 87-84 triumph over the woeful Cleveland Cavaliers.

Kidd had just three points on 1-of-6 shooting through three quarters but stepped up when the Nets needed him most. His 3-pointer with 2:17 left erased a 78-77 deficit and put New Jersey on top for good. He added a jumper with 29 seconds to go, pushing the lead to 85-81.

The Cavaliers got within 85-84 on a 3-pointer by Lamond Murray with 14 seconds left, but Kidd made two free throws and Wesley Person missed a potential tying 3-pointer at the horn to seal New Jersey's fifth win in six games.

Chris Mihm scored a career-high 20 points and Murray had 13 of his 21 in the final quarter for the Cavaliers, who fell to 1-6.
