Game Story

EAST RUTHERFORD, New Jersey (Ticker) -- Kenyon Martin added his birthday performance to the long list of things the New Jersey Nets can celebrate. Martin had 28 points and 10 rebounds on his 25th birthday as the Nets extended their season-high winning streak to seven games and matched the longest home stretch in franchise history with a 102-88 victory over the lowly Cleveland Cavaliers. Helped by its success at Continental Airlines Arena, New Jersey has won 12 of its last 14 games and matched the second-longest winning streak in franchise history. The Nets are a league-best 18-1 at home and have won 13 consecutive games here to match last season's franchise mark. Martin is averaging 24.3 points and 8.6 rebound in his last three games and fell one point shy of his season high in his first NBA game on his birthday. He made 11-of-18 shots and tied season highs with six assists and three blocks. "I let the game come to me," he said. "My shot selection was a lot better. I didn't settle for jump shots and went to the basket." "He's playing great basketball, he's playing smart and under control," New Jersey coach Byron Scott said. "He's not really looking to score, he's just letting everything come to him. When he plays that way, he's pretty hard to guard." Richard Jefferson scored 19 points and Jason Kidd added 17 and 10 assists for New Jersey, which posted 12 victories in December, including 11 at home - both franchise records. The Nets are gaining momentum at the right time as the defending Eastern Conference champions play 10 of their next 12 games on the road. "We've got a ton of games on the road," Kidd said. "We have to go out and play we can't put so much pressure on winning. Winning and losing will take care of itself. If we can do what we've been doing at home, then we can win games on the road as well." "We have to continue to play the same way no matter where we are," Scott said. "We have to carry the same type of attitude we have at home on the road. If we can do that, then we know we are going to win." New Jersey led by as many as 14 in the second quarter but had its lead reduced to 46-41 after Cleveland's Ricky Davis buried a 3-pointer with 2:26 left. Kidd responded with a jumper to spark a decisive 14-0 run bridging the second and third quarters. "The Nets just took it up a notch," Cleveland rookie guard Dajuan Wagner said. "They killed us. We didn't have answer. They are one of the best teams in the league with one of the best point guards in the league." Kidd scored half the points during the burst, which gave New Jersey a 61-42 cushion less than two minutes into the third quarter. The Cavaliers were held scoreless for nearly five minutes during the run and never recovered. The Nets had their largest lead at 81-59 on a pair of free throws by Aaron Williams with 2:50 to go. Lucious Harris collected 15 points and 10 rebounds for New Jersey, which had a 45-38 rebounding advantage and scored 26 points off 18 Cleveland turnovers. Davis finished with 24 points and 10 assists and Wagner added 22 points for Cleveland, which has lost 14 consecutive road games. "I thought we did some good things for a while," Lucas said. "We couldn't get a lot inside and it made a big difference. Kenyon Martin really hurt us tonight, he was a man out on the court." The Cavaliers were held to 43 percent (35-of-82) despite making 10-of-17 3-pointers and went to the line only 12 times.
