Game Story

EAST RUTHERFORD, New Jersey (Ticker) -- The New Jersey Nets found the perfect remedy for a tough loss. Jason Kidd scored 13 of his 24 points in the first quarter and Kenyon Martin added 15 points as the Nets rolled to a 99-79 rout of the lowly Denver Nuggets. New Jersey was handed its first home loss of the season against the unbeaten Dallas Mavericks on Saturday. But the Nets bounced back against the Nuggets - the lowest-scoring team in the NBA - who were coming off the worst game in franchise history. "We weren't going to take (the Nuggets) lightly," Kidd said. "On any given night you can be beaten. We set the tone early, which is what we needed to do as a team." Denver had the second-best defense in the league, allowing just 82.6 points per game, but was torn apart by an efficient New Jersey offense. "We had been defending really well up until tonight," Denver coach Jeff Bzdelik said. "(The Nets) are a great basketball team. They are physical, they move the ball and they put a clinic on. They simply picked us apart tonight." The Nets shot a season-high 54 percent (38-of-70), made 8-of-13 3-pointers and hit 15-of-19 free throws. They held 31-9 advantage on the fast break and scored 30 points off 28 turnovers. "That's the team I remember last year," Nets coach Byron Scott said. "We had a tough loss and we were able to bounce back. We didn't take this team lightly. We came out with an aggressive mindset from the beginning of the game and carried it throughout." "It was a good test for us after an emotional game on Saturday," Martin added. "It shows the sign of a good team to not let down. We came out in the first quarter and jumped on them like we should have." New Jersey never trailed after Kidd opened the game with a 3-pointer. The All-Star point guard made 5-of-6 shots in the first quarter, including three 3-pointers, as the Nets jumped to a 30-15 cushion and never looked back. Kerry Kittles scored eight of his 15 points in the second period and New Jersey carried a 55-29 cushion into the half. Denver's 29 first-half points matched the dubious franchise record set Saturday against Detroit. The Nets scored 28 points in the third quarter and held their largest lead at 83-48 after a free throw by Kittles with 18 seconds left in the period. Richard Jefferson had 13 points and eight assists and Kittles had a season-high six assists and three steals for New Jersey, which had 23 assists and a season-high 16 steals. "There wasn't a lot of things I didn't like about our game tonight," Scott said. Kenny Satterfield scored 15 points and was the only player in double figures for the punchless Nuggets, who have lost four straight and six of last seven. "If we knew what (the problem) was right now, we would fix it so we could get a win," Satterfield said. "It's a mixture of everything. Some of us are struggling on the defensive end and our turnovers lead to easy points for the opposing team." Denver shot just 41 percent (35-of-85) from the floor and made only 4-of-7 free throws. The Nuggets did not attempt a free throws until 7:02 of the third quarter.
