Game Story

EAST RUTHERFORD, New Jersey (Ticker) -- The New Jersey Nets and coach Lawrence Frank are rewriting record books. Kenyon Martin had 23 points, 13 rebounds, four steals and four blocks and Jason Kidd narrowly missed another triple-double as the Nets ran their club-record winning streak to 13 games with a 97-84 triumph over the New Orleans Hornets. New Jersey's 13-game run is the longest in its 36-year history - including a nine-year stint in the ABA - and matches the longest in the league this season. The Nets also improved to 12-0 under Frank, extending his NBA record for consecutive wins to start a career. The 12 straight wins equal the best start in professional sports history, last accomplished in 1988 by Boston Red Sox manager Joe Morgan. Kidd had 11 points, nine rebounds and nine assists for the Nets, who have won seven straight at Continental Airlines Arena to improve to 19-8 at home. Richard Jefferson added 21 points. "Our mind-set is not about losing, it's about getting better every game," Kidd said. "We just try to keep the focus and maintain the tempo." Jamal Mashburn collected 28 points and 13 rebounds and Jamaal Magliore added 14 and 12 for the Hornets, who had a three-game winning streak snapped. The Nets led 25-24 after a tight opening quarter, but Lucious Harris provided a spark off the bench with 10 1/2 minutes left in the half. He made 4-of-6 shots in the period as New Jersey extended its advantage to 51-44 at halftime. "They were big pluses when they came in and the score increased when they left," Frank said of his second unit. "I think our bench has been super. We have had great balance during our success over the last 2 1/2 years." New Orleans had trouble solving Frank's defensive schemes in the first half, shooting 37 percent (15-of-41) and committing 10 turnovers. "Their pressure didn't really bother us, they just played a good half-court defense," Hornets guard Baron Davis said. "They got us into the half-court game and forced us to take jumpers. I thought when we went to the hole, we missed some good opportunites." New Orleans opened the second half with a 13-6 run and tied it, 57-57, on a 3-pointer by Davis with 8:11 to go in the third quarter. Martin snapped a 59-59 deadlock and ignited a 10-0 spurt with a short hook shot. The All-Star forward had six points in the run, which Kerry Kittles capped with a driving layup with 4:29 remaining. Martin's big night was more impressive, considering he was battling illness. "To be truthful, I really didn't feel well, but I'm here, so I'm going to show up and play," he said. "I didn't really play well last night and I didn't play that many minutes, either. I just wanted to come out and give an effort. I got my second wind and I felt good." New Jersey's lead was down to 74-68 entering the final period, but the Nets used a 12-2 burst to open things up. New Orleans got no closer than eight points over the final seven minutes. "We had a lot of fast-break points," Jefferson said. "That's a lot of getting layups, so that's a lot of points in the paint, also. It's not like we're just beating them in the half-court set. With a team like that, you have to drive to the paint." "They play off their athleticism and they continue to run the floor consistently," Hornets coach Tim Floyd said. "That's probably the thing they do best. They pressure and run, and they're athletes."
