Game Story

MIAMI (Ticker) -- Jason Kidd single-handedly ended the New Jersey Nets' struggles on the road. Kidd scored 33 points and Lucious Harris added 14 off the bench as the Nets controlled the fourth quarter en route to a 93-84 victory over the Miami Heat. New Jersey is unbeaten in five home games but had lost two of three away from Continental Airlines Arena due to the road struggles of Richard Jefferson. The second-year forward is averaging nearly 19 points per game at home but was limited to 20 points in three road games. But Kidd did not need much help against the punchless Heat as he made 13-of-25 shots and fell two points shy of his season high set Saturday against the Los Angeles Clippers. He made 6-of-6 free throws and collected six rebounds and six assists. "It's what I have to do at certain times," Kidd said. "I thought Kerry (Kittles) set the tone early and I just fed off Kerry. I wanted to join in." "The more he is aggressive offensively, the better we are," Nets coach Byron Scott added. "Jason does a good job of getting others involved and he has a pretty good idea of what we need in certain situations. Jason wants to win. If it means giving up his body, that is what he's going to do." The Nets were clinging to a 68-66 lead with seven seconds left in the third quarter before pulling away with a 13-2 run. Kidd completed a three-point play to spark the burst and stole the ensuing inbounds pass before feeding Harris, who was fouled and sank both free throws to give New Jersey a 73-66 lead at the end of the period. "It is the mental things we talk about and the little lapses we go through," Miami forward Brian Grant said. "We went from being down two to being down seven in a moment." "It was crucial, it gave them momentum," Heat point guard Travis Best added. "They are not a team that you can turn the ball over against. They turned it into easy baskets. They take away the momentum you are trying to build. We have ourselves to blame." Kidd capped the stretch with a technical free throw to give the Nets an 81-68 cushion with less than seven minutes to play. The run proved costly, however, as New Jersey lost Kenyon Martin to a broken nose with 10:45 remaining. Martin, who played just 17 minutes due to foul trouble, was elbowed by Miami's Vladimir Stepania while going for a rebound. Miami pulled within 85-80 on a jumper by rookie Caron Butler with 2:20 to go. But Jefferson responded with a jumper and, after a free throw by Kittles, Kidd sank a 22-footer with 39 seconds left to seal the win. Jefferson's road struggles continued in the first half as he did not attempt a shot in 10 minutes due to foul trouble. But he finished with 12 points on 3-of-8 shooting and grabbed eight rebounds, including six in the second half. "(Harris) had some encouraging words at halftime," Jefferson said. "Tonight I got in foul trouble, but then I still found a way to recover and help the team. I'm growing as a player and I'm still learning." Kittles scored 11 points and Dikembe Mutombo had 10 rebounds for New Jersey, which shot just 41 percent (31-of-75) from the floor but outscored Miami from the line, 29-10. Eddie Jones had 18 points and nine rebounds and Butler also scored a season-high 18 points for the Heat, who have lost four straight and six of their first seven games. Best added 16 points off the bench as Miami completed a 1-5 homestand. "Kidd was absolutely outstanding," Miami coach Pat Riley said. "They got a lot of cuts and they ran their offense real hard. We just let it get away in certain areas. It all adds up to another loss."
