Game Story

ATLANTA (Ticker) -- After a brief lapse, Richard Jefferson continued to get back on track with the presence of Jason Kidd in the lineup. Jefferson scored 14 of his 21 points in the fourth quarter and Travis Best added a season-high 21 as the New Jersey Nets posted their third win in four games since Kidd's return, a 95-90 triumph over the Atlanta Hawks. New Jersey's leading scorer in 13 of its first 14 games, Jefferson had a two-game slide earlier this month in which he scored a combined 21 points. But when Kidd joined the Nets' lineup Monday after offseason knee surgery, Jefferson returned to form, scoring 26 points in a victory over Toronto. The 24-year-old swingman continued the resurgence by scoring 27 and 24 points in his next two games. But in this one, Jefferson scored just seven through three quarters while starting at guard in place of Kidd, who came off the bench after playing 28 minutes in Friday's overtime win over New Orleans. With the Nets in the midst of a 16-4 run in the fourth period, Jefferson came alive, capping the spurt with a 3-pointer and scoring 11 points the rest of the way to lead New Jersey to it fifth win in seven games. "I've been put in a new position this year, trying to be a playmaker," Jefferson said. "In the first half, the Hawks did a good job taking me out of my comfort zone. In the second half, especially in the fourth quarter, I was able to recognize what I needed to do." "Things weren't exactly going his way early," Nets coach Lawrence Frank added. "The true test of a special player is finding something that works." Jefferson also grabbed eight rebounds, Eric Williams scored 20 points and Kidd added nine for the Nets, who posted their second win over the Hawks in eight days. "I think we're building on something," Kidd said. "In every game, we play defense. Everybody is playing well. We just have to continue to get better." The Nets won despite the fact Kidd - who is first among active players with an average of 9.4 assists per game - finished without one for the first time in his career. "I don't know (if it ever happened before)," Kidd said. "Not that I can remember. We got a win. That's the big thing on the road." "Jason's one of those guys that just finds a way to win," Frank said. "Regardless of stats, it's just about the win." Antoine Walker had 25 points and 13 rebounds and Al Harrington scored 21 points for Atlanta, which had won two of its previous three games, including an 88-72 road upset of defending champion Detroit on Friday. "We have to get a consistent effort," said Hawks rookie guard Josh Smith, who had 11 points and seven rebounds. "We have to find out how we won the game (at Detroit) and stay with the game plan." The Hawks held a 38-32 advantage with 1 1/2 minutes left in the first half, thanks to 7-0 and 8-0 runs earlier in the second quarter. But Atlanta allowed New Jersey to score six of the next eight points and close the gap to 40-38 at the break. "I thought that was huge," Hawks coach Mike Woodson said. "The momentum shifted. And in the third and fourth quarter, you look at 57 points in the second half. That's not us. You're not going to win like that and they know that."
