Game Story

EAST RUTHERFORD, New Jersey (Ticker) - Jason Kidd took the drama out of this one early. Kidd outscored the Washington Wizards in the first quarter and had 26 points by halftime as the New Jersey Nets jumped out to a huge lead and held on for a 109-101 victory, moving to the brink of clinching the final Eastern Conference playoff berth. Kidd was dominant from the start, scoring 15 points on 6-of-11 shooting in the first quarter while the Nets held the Wizards to just 13 points on 6-of-19 from the floor. He finished with a season-high 35 points, eight rebounds, eight assists and five steals as New Jersey (41-40) remained tied with Cleveland for the eighth playoff spot in the East. Vince Carter collected 26 points and nine assists for the Nets, who have won 14 of 18. They own the tiebreaker with the Cavaliers and can clinch their fourth straight playoff berth with either a win at Boston or a Cleveland loss at Toronto on Wednesday. "I remember L (Nets coach Lawrence Frank) saying it's probably going to take 82 (games) to decide whether we get in, and he was right," Carter said. "It's not about who does what right now, we just need everybody to bring it." "I always believe was coach says," Kidd said. "He is always right. This is the best part of the season, so you have to put your best foot forward." Kidd scored eight points and had an assist during a game-opening 10-0 burst for New Jersey, which ended the first quarter ahead by a whopping 32-13. Carter had 10 points in the period. "In the first quarter, I think Vince has rubbed off on me," Kidd said. "We've been getting off to some good starts and the ball was dropping for me. We felt if we came out aggressive and put them on their heels, we could come out with a big win." "Our guys obviously came out with the same sort of sharpness we saw (on Sunday) against Philly," Frank said. "They're going at an unbeatable pace and tempo. Our guys have done a great job of putting our team in this position and now we have to give our best effort against the best team in the Atlantic Division." Kidd was quiet most of the second quarter before scoring the Nets' final 10 points to help them to a 61-40 halftime advantage. New Jersey led by as many as 28 early in the third quarter, but Washington rallied behind its reserves to climb within 105-96 with 93 seconds left. But Carter had a spinning dunk off a feed from Kidd and Jason Collins buried a jumper from the top of the key for a 13-point cushion with a minute to play. "It's easy to come back and lose," Washington coach and former New Jersey assistant Eddie Jordan said. "My bench did a good job. (The Nets) had control of the game as long as Vince and J-Kidd and were in the game." Larry Hughes scored 18 points and Etan Thomas had 14 and 11 rebounds off the bench for Washington (45-36), which was slotted into the fifth spot when Chicago beats New York later Tuesday. Chicago is the fourth seed and has home-court advantage against Washington in the first round. "We came out flat and they came out aggressive," Hughes said. "It wasn't a playoff-type game. They're trying to make the playoffs, we're in the playoffs." Wizards' guard Gilbert Arenas, who entered as the seventh-leading scorer in the NBA at 25.7 points per game, was held scoreless until the final seconds of the first half. He finished with just eight points on 2-of-7 shooting.
