Game Story

EAST RUTHERFORD, New Jersey (Ticker) -- Jason Kidd and the New Jersey Nets continue to cruise at home, while the Milwaukee Bucks continue to free-fall.

Kidd had 17 points, 15 assists and eight rebounds as the Nets won their franchise record-tying ninth consecutive home game, 108-84, over the struggling Bucks.

New Jersey has not lost at home since February 14 to Detroit. It extended its lead to three games over the Pistons atop the Eastern Conference standings.

Milwaukee has dropped its last four contests to slip to fifth place in the conference, seven games behind the Nets and four behind the Pistons in the Central Division. The Bucks were tied with the Pistons atop the division as recently as Saturday.

In this one, Michael Redd's 3-pointer with 6:23 remaining in the second quarter gave the Bucks their largest lead, 38-25.

But the Nets countered with a 25-10 run into halftime and took the lead for good at 50-48 on a 3-pointer by Kidd with less than a second remaining.

Kenyon Martin had 12 points during the run, 10 after Darvin Ham was whistled for a flagrant foul for practically clotheslining Martin on a layup attempt with 3:53 left.

"I didn't think that either team came out real aggressive in the beginning of the game," Nets coach Byron Scott said. "It seemed to me that the flagrant foul that Darvin Ham got on Kenyon was the thing that really ignited us. From that point on, we just played lights-out basketball."

Ham got Milwaukee within 58-55 on a dunk with 8:45 left in the third quarter, but Kidd nailed another shot from the arc to start a 28-4 burst that was capped by a jumper by rookie Richard Jefferson with 41 seconds left in the period.

"I think everyone came out with a little more of a focus in the third quarter," Scott said. "We did what we have been doing extremely well the last few games. That is defending people, rebounding and getting up and down the floor. Jason was great at pushing the ball, Kerry was great at running, Keith was trailing and we (got) some wide-open shots and guys were making them."

The Nets held an 86-62 advantage after three quarters and led by at least 20 points thereafter.

"It a 48-minute game," Bucks coach George Karl said. "We played about 21 minutes of the first half extremely well. We kind of gave them the lead back. In the third quarter they erupted. They are a team playing with a lot of confidence and we are a team searching for our confidence."

Kerry Kittles scored 21 points, Kenyon Martin added 20 and Keith Van Horn 14 with 10 rebounds for the Nets, who made 6-of-10 3-pointers in the third quarter, when they outscored the Bucks, 36-14.

"We really came out with aggression in the second half," Kittles said. "It was a groove that we really were in as a team. Everyone was really feeding off each other. Guys were making shots and really feeling good about shooting the ball."

"Kerry was calling his shot every time," Kidd said. "He was wide open. We have seen that before. We just rode him and Kenyon until they got tired."

Sam Cassell scored 18 points, Ray Allen had 16 and Redd 15 for the Bucks, who missed stars Glenn Robinson (bruised tailbone) and Tim Thomas (sprained right knee).

"If a guy is hurt, a guy is hurt," Cassell said. "Injuries are a part of the game. It's just our time. We didn't have any injuries for three or four years. We are going through it now with guys being hurt. Ray is hurt and I am hurting, and we are just not getting it done right now."

"They came down and moved the ball, found open shooters, and we just could not respond to it," Allen said. "Despite having Glenn Robinson out, it was not anything that we were missing from Glenn. It was defense. They turned up the heat and we didn't respond."

New Jersey, which last won nine straight at home from December 6-30, 1999, can break the record on Sunday against Atlanta in the front end of a home-and-home series.

"We're not paying attention to any records that are being set this year," Kittles said. "We're just trying to concentrate on getting better as a team. We put ourselves in a position where we will be in the postseason and we're trying to keep the No. 1 spot in the East. That's our goal."
