Game Story

OAKLAND, California (Ticker) -- Without their fast break offense, the New Jersey Nets relied on their other strong trait - defense. The Nets held the Golden State Warriors scoreless for nearly the last four minutes and got big baskets from Lucious Harris and Richard Jefferson in a 78-74 victory, their second in three games without superstar Jason Kidd. Kidd, who drives New Jersey's relentless fast break, has missed the first three games of the road trip with a bruised knee. While the offense has slowed to a crawl, the defense - which helped the Nets reach the NBA Finals each of the last two years - has remained tough. "The guys played great," said Kidd, an Oakland native. "It was ugly in the first half, but we stayed with it. In the second half, the tempo came into our favor." After Jason Richardson's jumper snapped the sixth tie of the fourth quarter and gave Golden State a 74-72 lead with 3:58 left, the Warriors did not score again. "Defense is our offense, without a doubt," Nets coach Lawrence Frank said. "We are not the greatest shooting team, but the key is you have to know who you are." A jumper by Harris, who started for Kidd and scored eight points, gave the Nets their first lead, 75-74, with 1:58 to go. On the next possession, Jefferson, who scored 23 points, made a spinning layup at the 1:22 mark for a 77-74 edge. "Every guy on that floor has played in the NBA Finals the last two years, so when it comes down to it, you know how to pick it up, you know how to play, you know that you've got to talk on every single situation," Jefferson said. "We have a lot of experience together." Having led the entire game, the Warriors appeared to panic as Cliff Robinson and Richardson launched rushed 3-pointers on their next two possessions. The Nets committed a 24-second violation but forced a turnover as Richardson fumbled an inbounds pass out of bounds with 4.5 seconds remaining. Kerry Kittles sealed the win with a foul shot. Kittles had 17 points and nine rebounds for the Nets, who have won 17 of their last 20 games as they head to Los Angeles for Sunday's nationally televised showdown with the Lakers. Foul-plagued Kenyon Martin scored just nine points but was tough on defense with five steals and a pair of blocks. "Kenyon was a huge energizer for us with his steals and his blocks," Frank said. Richardson scored 22 points and Mike Dunleavy, Jr. - playing point forward - added 20 for the Warriors, who in the last four minutes missed six shots and committed two turnovers. They have lost four straight games. Without Kidd, the Nets looked as lethargic as they did in Wednesday's loss at Phoenix and trailed, 39-30, at halftime. But they went to a pressure defense at the outset of the second half and got back in the game. "When things didn't start going well, I think we started hanging our heads in the first half," Jefferson said. "So we changed that up, we just started pressuring them a little bit more and things started going our way." "Their pressure bothered us in the second half," Warriors coach Eric Musselman said. "It is hard to execute with all the pressure they were putting on us, again, without a true point guard to bring the ball up the court." Jefferson scored 10 points in the third quarter, which ended in a 58-58 tie. The game was tied six times in the final period, the last time at 72-72 after Jefferson leaked out for a layup with 4:16 to go.
