Game Story

EAST RUTHERFORD, New Jersey (Ticker) -- Jason Kidd may have missed out on another triple-double, but he didn't miss when the New Jersey Nets needed him most. Kidd scored six of his 14 points in the final minute and had nine rebounds and nine assists as the Nets held on for a 104-98 triumph over the Boston Celtics. Trailing 92-83 with just over four minutes remaining in the fourth quarter, Boston battled back with an 9-1 spurt over the next two minutes. Rookie Al Jefferson scored six of his eight points during the burst, including a shot in the lane with 2:11 remaining to make it 95-91. After Raef LaFrentz missed a 3-pointer that would have pulled the Celtics within one, Kidd put away the game, drilling a 3-pointer as the shot clock expired to extend New Jersey's lead to 98-91 with 58 seconds to go. "He's big," said Vince Carter, who led the Nets with 25 points and assisted on Kidd's decisive basket. "I saw him on the wing and there was nothing inside. I saw it in the air midway and said, 'That's good. That's good.'" "We got the ball in Vince's hand, and he's such a great player and he can get his shot," said Kidd. "But he penetrated and I was sitting there wide open." Kidd, who has two triple-doubles in the previous six games, made three free throws down the stretch and scored six of the final 10 points for New Jersey (15-24), which has found new life in the division with three straight victories. "(The division) is definitely there for us to take," Carter said. "Regardless of the record, We feel like, 'Why not us?'" Kidd said. Travis Best scored 14 of his season-high 24 points off the bench in the second quarter and Paul Pierce countered with 16 of his 22 in the first half as the teams battled to a 48-48 tie at the break. Best, who had not scored more than 24 points since December 8, 2000, shot 8-of-11 from the floor, including 3-of-5 from the arc. "Our bench stepped up in a huge way, and we wound up outscoring them (38-36)," Nets coach Lawrence Frank said. Led by Carter, the Nets took their biggest lead in the third quarter. Rookie Nenad Krstic hit a baseline jumper to give New Jersey the lead for good and spark a 22-9 spree over the next six-plus minutes that gave the Nets a 74-62 edge. Carter, who has the led team in scoring in six straight games, scored 10 of his 25 points in the run before Brian Scalabrine scored the final six points for the Nets, who held Boston to one basket over that stretch. Krstic posted his third double-double of the season, scoring 13 points and matching a career high with 12 rebounds as New Jersey held a 42-35 edge on the glass. Each team attempted 37 free throws in a game that took nearly 2 1/2 hours to complete. "There wasn't any good flow to it and I think the referees controlled that," said Pierce, who was 7-of-7 from the line. "I don't want to say anything bad about the referees, but they dictated the flow." "There was a lot of stoppage," said Celtics coach Doc Rivers. "There was a lot on our end." Boston has lost eight straight road games and failed to grab sole possession of the Atlantic Division lead over idle Philadelphia. "To win this division, we're going to have to win some road games," Pierce said. "We feel like it's coming. We just couldn't get over the hump."
