Game Story

EAST RUTHERFORD, New Jersey (Ticker) -- Rookie Nenad Krstic outplayed Brad Miller all game and the New Jersey Nets outplayed the Sacramento Kings down the stretch. Krstic scored a season-high 18 points and Vince Carter fueled a late surge as the Nets defeated the slumping Kings, 96-85. Krstic was coming off an awful 0-of-8 showing in Tuesday's loss at Minnesota and was matched up against the bigger Miller, who had been red-hot of late. But Krstic made 9-of-14 shots and grabbed eight rebounds as he got the better of Miller, who had just eight points on 2-of-10 shooting and five boards. "I don't think too much that I played bad last time," said Krstic, who had 12 rebounds against Minnesota. "I just go out there and play the best I can. He's a very good player, but for me as a rookie, it's good to play against guys who are All-Stars." "He was big, he was huge for us," Nets guard Jason Kidd said. "We needed him. At Minnesota our frontcourt was 0-of-18 and this was a statement from him to bounce back." Despite Miller's struggles, the Kings pulled into a 78-78 tie with 8:31 remaining on two free throws by Darius Songaila. The Nets responded with a decisive 14-2 run in which Carter scored six points and Travis Best five, including a 3-pointer that made it 92-80 with 4:40 to play. The Kings never recovered, going scoreless for more than three minutes down the stretch. They made just 5-of-20 shots in the fourth quarter and 12-of-39 in the second half after shooting 53 percent (22-of-42) in the first 24 minutes. "They were hitting their jumpers early, but our guys stayed with it," Nets coach Lawrence Frank said. "There is no easy way to guard these guys. You just try to take away their space. Sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't. We were fortunate enough that it worked." "We couldn't get our shots to go down. I thought we were very sluggish," Sacramento coach Rick Adelman said. "We needed a lot of shots. It's pretty simple. We didn't do anything easy. We just didn't have an answers." Carter scored 21 points and Kidd registered another triple-double for the Nets, who head into the All-Star break having won 11 of their last 17 games. They had lost three of their previous four. "It's a bounce-back and it's important to keep it going," Carter said. "Twenty-nine games (remaining) is not that many games and we have to build on this. Hopefully a couple teams get ready for the break early and enjoy it a little bit afterwards." Kidd had 19 points, 11 rebounds and 10 assists for his fifth triple-double of the season and 64th career. The Nets are 19-18 since Kidd returned from knee surgery after going 4-12 without him. "Right now, we have a long way to go," he said. "We'll see if we have more ups than downs." Mike Bibby scored 25 points and Cuttino Mobley added 16 for the Kings, who played without flu-ridden Peja Stojakovic and Matt Barnes and lost for the sixth time in seven games. Despite being shorthanded, Sacramento made 12-of-21 shots in the first quarter and led by as many as 13 midway through the second period. But New Jersey closed the half with a 19-9 run led by Krstic, who had eight points, two rebounds, a steal and a block during the stretch. "They jumped out early, but we just kept plugging away," Kidd said. "It was huge for us to be able to bounce back after (losing at Minnesota) and beat one of the best teams in the Western Conference."
