Game Story

EAST RUTHERFORD, New Jersey (Ticker) -- No one may have been more surprised by the New Jersey Nets' domination of the Sacramento Kings than the man that has been a coach for both.

Keith Van Horn snapped out of a mild slump with 25 points and Jason Kidd collected 14 points, seven rebounds, seven assists and three steals as the Nets gave Byron Scott his first coaching win over the Sacramento Kings, 117-83.

Scott spent two seasons as an assistant coach with Sacramento before taking the job as head coach of New Jersey on June 27, 2000. After the team struggled in his initial season, the Nets have the best record in the Eastern Conference, earning Scott a chance to coach in the All-Star Game.

The Kings swept last year's season series, winning both meetings by a total of 42 points, and posted a 98-97 win at Arco Arena on November 24. But the tables were drastically turned at the Meadowlands as New Jersey held Sacramento to its lowest point total of the season.

"I was a little surprised we were beating them the way we were," said Scott, who downplayed beating Sacramento for the first time. "I thought our defense was fantastic. When you hold the number one offense to 85 points, you've done a heck of a job with the defensive end, creating a lot things on the offensive end."

"I'm glad we got the win and glad (Scott) was successful against his former team," Kidd said. "We've broken a lot of streaks this year."

Van Horn, who failed to reach double figures in his previous three games, made 10-of-15 shots to lead seven Nets in double figures. He fell 10 points shy of his career high without taking the court in the final 13 minutes.

"He came out ready to play," Scott said. "I think he was just tired of not making shots. The only way to get out of it is to change your routine and just come ready to play."

"I've been playing far too passive lately," Van Horn said. "It's easy to fall into that trap. But I came out aggressive tonight."

Reserve Lucious Harris scored 17 points and Kenyon Martin added 15 as New Jersey extended its home winning streak to eight games with its most lopsided victory of the season.

Rookie Richard Jefferson scored 12 points off the bench, Kerry Kittles added 11 and Todd MacCulloch 10 for the Nets, who made 5-of-7 3-pointers and 13-of-16 free throws in the second half.

After a back-and-forth first half, New Jersey opened the third quarter on a 25-8 run, turning a three-point halftime edge into an 82-62 cushion. Van Horn scored nine of his 13 third-quarter points during the burst and Kittles chipped in seven.

The Nets made 11-of-22 shots and forced 10 turnovers in the third quarter. The Kings, who made just 10-of-43 shots after halftime, never got closer than 17 thereafter.

Harris scored 12 points in the fourth quarter and gave the Nets their largest lead, 117-81, on a layup with 33 seconds remaining.

"I wasn't expecting this. I thought it would be a dogfight," Kidd said. "They turned it over a lot. The ball bounced our way and we capitalized on it. They were trying to find someone to go to, but didn't."

Sacramento's All-Star forward Chris Webber scored 23 points on 9-of-22 shooting and missed most of the second half with a stomach ailment.

"I thought about sitting out tonight, but I decided go ahead out and play," he said. "No excuses. Just let it hang out."

All-Star Peja Stojakovic was limited to 14 points and Scot Pollard added 10 off the bench for the Kings, who had a five-game winning streak snapped and lost for just the second time in 19 games.

"We played a step slow, a step behind in everything we did," Sacramento coach Rick Adelman said. "We tried to control the tempo, but we just couldn't do it in the third quarter. They play a lot like us, they run, put pressure on you all the time."

Sacramento had reached the 100-point mark in 15 of its previous 16 games, averaging 113 points during that stretch. But the Kings shot just 35 percent (30-of-85) and committed 22 turnovers leading to 31 points for the Nets.
