Game Story

EAST RUTHERFORD, New Jersey (Ticker) -- Michael Redd, Desmond Mason and the Milwaukee Bucks demonstrated why they will be playing in the postseason. Redd and Mason keyed a big run down the stretch as the Bucks rallied from a 10-point fourth-quarter deficit to defeat the New Jersey Nets, 103-98, spoiling the return of Jason Kidd. Damon Jones collected 23 points and 11 assists and Redd added 21 and nine rebounds for the Bucks, who trailed, 82-72, after the Nets scored the opening basket of the fourth quarter. The deficit was 96-91 after a dunk by New Jersey's Kenyon Martin with 3:10 remaining before Redd countered with a layup and Mason sank a jumper and two free throws to give the Bucks a 97-96 edge with 1:23 left. Redd scored on a follow shot and a jumper to open a 101-96 cushion with 20 seconds left. After a dunk by New Jersey's Richard Jefferson, former Net Keith Van Horn capped the scoring with a pair of free throws with 17 seconds to go. "That broke their back a little bit," Redd said of the run. "Those guys are a good team and it is tough to beat them here, and for us to do that tonight under any circumstances is a great win for us." Mason scored 18 points for the Bucks, who shot 51 percent (38-of-75) from the field as they posted their fourth victory in five games. With the victory, the Bucks (40-38) opened a 1 1/2-game lead over Miami (38-39) and a two-game cushion over New Orleans (38-39) for fourth place in the Eastern Conference. "It was a great win for us," said Bucks coach Terry Porter, whose team was not expected to contend for a playoff berth before the season. "Obviously, we're trying to fight for the fourth spot. It was a great win, just the way we hung in there and grinded it out in the second half. We did a great job of making some stops in the fourth quarter." "We are not just being content to be in the playoffs," Jones said. "We are going to try to do a good job and get the fourth postion and after that we are going to try and win that first-round series. If we keep playing with this intensity, it is a goal we can attain." Rodney Rogers scored a season-high 26 points - none in the fourth quarter - and Jefferson 25 for the Nets, who had a three-game winning streak snapped. Kidd, the All-Star point guard, had nine points on 4-of-11 shooting and five assists in 21 minutes off the bench after missing nine games with a bone bruise on his left knee. "It was great to be back playing - it's no fun to be sitting over there in plain clothes and not in uniform to help the team," said Kidd, who came off the bench for the first time in three seasons with the Nets. "We had the opportunity to win the ballgame late, but unfortunately we couldn't hit some shots." "We had good moments with Kidd up and down the court," Nets coach Lawrence Frank said. "He was able to slide laterally. Don't worry about his shot at this point because it is going to come." Also coming off the bench for the Nets was All-Star forward Kenyon Martin, who had six points and five fouls in 21 minutes. He had played just once in the Nets' previous nine games because of tendinitis in his left knee. "It ached towards the end of the game but for the most part it felt good," Martin said. "I was just happy to be back on the court with the guys and trying to have some fun and get myself back into a groove." "I think Kenyon is obviously impacted by his ability to be a force in the paint and rebound," Porter said. "Kidd did a good job with making a couple of shots but he got guys active. They are just trying to get the rust off."
