Game Story

EAST RUTHERFORD, New Jersey (Ticker) -- Even without Kenyon Martin, the New Jersey Nets' depth proved too much for the determined but exhausted Golden State Warriors. Jason Kidd and Richard Jefferson scored 22 points apiece as the Nets pulled away late for a 109-97 victory over the Warriors, who went nearly six minutes without a field goal down the stretch. "No better time to prepare for the playoffs than now," Kidd said. "We're starting to turn it around and playing like we did before the All-Star break." Seven players, including all five starters, scored in double figures for the Nets, who have won three in a row for the first time since late January and remained 1 1/2 games ahead of second-place Philadelphia in the Atlantic Division. "We've been sharing the ball very well lately," New Jersey coach Byron Scott said. "Guys are getting a lot of touches. When you play against Golden State you better have five or six guys in double figures because they can score." But it may have been a costly win as Martin left in the third quarter with a sprained right knee and did not return. "I didn't know (of the sprain) until I got up," Martin said. "I feel like I hyperextended it, but I didn't get hit." Martin will underdo an MRI on Sunday to determine the extent of the injury and Scott did ssound optimistic. "This puts a damper on the win because not only did we get Dikembe (Mutombo) back, but Kenyon was playing so great," Scott said. "He was really playing at a very high level and to not know what exactly the situation is, it's not a great feeling." "He's been playing extremely well," Kidd added. "For this to happen at this point of the season, it's not a good time. As a team, we have to carry the load and he's been carrying us offensively and defensively, so if he's out a bit, he will be missed." Playing their fourth game in five days, the Warriors were trying to reach .500. They closed within 91-89 on two free throws by Erick Dampier with 5:28 left but missed their next 12 shots before Antawn Jamison and Jason Richardson made meaningless jumpers in the final minute. "I thought we played really good basketball in the first 44 minutes," Golden State coach Eric Musselman said. "Our turnovers in the first half were hard to overcome. This being our fourth game in five nights with the West to East Coast travel, we struggled to make shots down the stretch." The Nets put it away with an 8-0 run, opening a 99-89 lead on two free throws by Jason Collins with 1:59 to go. Jamison scored 28 points and Richardson added 20 for the Warriors, who dropped three games behind Phoenix for the final Western Conference playoff spot. "We came out a little tight but that's no excuse because the Nets played last night as well and they came out fine," Richardson said. "It was just a tough loss for us, and we couldn't get anything going." The game marked the return of New Jersey center Mutombo, who missed 56 contests with torn ligaments in his right wrist. He did not get off the bench after playing just five scoreless minutes in the first half. After Rodney Rogers made it 89-81 with 9:15 to go, the Nets went 5 1/2 minutes without a basket, allowing the Warriors to pull within two on Dampier's free throws. But Golden State had three chances to tie or take the lead before New Jersey ended its drought on Kerry Kittles' layup. Jefferson's drive and Kidd's layup made it 97-89 before Collins' foul shots gave the Nets their first first double-digit lead. "We played a solid game," Jefferson said. "There were stretches where we couldn't score but our defense kept up. Our defense did what we wanted it to do." Aaron Williams and Rogers contributed 14 and 11 points off the bench, respectively for the Nets. Martin and Collins added 13 apiece and Kittles chipped in with 10. Golden State dropped to 2-2 on its grueling five-game road trip that concludes at Portland on Tuesday. During the trek, the Warriors have defeated Boston and Philadelphia. "This has been an up and down roller coaster for us," Jamison said. "We did a good job of not letting the game get out of hand, but we couldn't get over the hump. We have to do a better job of playing the full 48 minutes." After falling behind, 6-1, in the first two minutes, the Warriors never led. New Jersey led 28-22 after the first quarter and 55-49 at the intermission. Golden State, which committed 20 turnovers, tied the contest, 74-74, on Jamison's 3-pointer play with 1:39 left in the third quarter. Rogers answered with a 20-footer on the ensuing possession to give the Nets the lead for good. New Jersey shot just under 51 percent from the field (45-of-89), while holding Golden State to 42 percent (33-of-79). The Warriors shot just 28 percent in the second half (13-of-47) after shooting 62.5 percent in the opening 24 minutes (20-of-32). "They are a tough team to guard becasue they have so many athletes, so many guys who can put the ball on the floor," Scott said. "This was a great win, especially with Kenyon going out and us being a little shorthanded. We had a lot of guys step up."
