Game Story

EAST RUTHERFORD, New Jersey (Ticker) -- Desperate for a win, the New Jersey Nets continued their recent dominance of the Boston Celtics. Richard Jefferson led six players in double figures with 25 points, helping the Nets roll to a 110-91 victory, their 12th in the last 13 meetings with the Celtics. The Nets are now 2-0 against Boston this season and their recent run of success against the Celtics dates to Game Four of the 2002 Eastern Conference finals. Kenyon Martin added 20 points and 15 rebounds as the Nets snapped a five-game losing streak, their longest since the end of the 2000-2001 season - before the arrival of superstar guard Jason Kidd. "We did what we needed to do and took care of home. Ending this five-game losing streak with a win like that, hopefully this will get us back on track," said Martin. "After you lose five in a row and break that streak it doesn't mean we're back," New Jersey coach Byron Scott said. "It's still a work in progress. We have to continue to get better. We played hard and did a good job contesting shots and rebounding the ball." Scott didn't stick around for the end of this one. The Nets held a 20-point lead with 1:44 left in the third quarter when Aaron Williams was called for an offensive foul. After some discussion with referee Luis Grillo, Scott was hit with two technicals and ejected. "It doesn't matter (what I said). I guess I said enough," said Scott. "I didn't think I did, but what the heck?" New Jersey turned to Kidd, their on-court coach who had 10 points and 11 assists, finishing one rebound shy of a triple-double. Lucious Harris came off the bench to score 14 points and ignited a key second-quarter run that saw the Nets extend their lead from six points to 56-39 at halftime. Rodney Rodgers added nine points to boost the much-maligned New Jersey substitutes. "The bench was a factor in us winning the game," Harris said. "We have to try to get back to what we've been doing the last two years. It's kind of hard when the starters have to go 40 minutes a night, so we have to be consistent." Ricky Davis scored 13 of his 26 points in the fourth quarter for the Celtics. Paul Pierce continued to struggle from the floor, making only 3-of-15 shots as Boston lost for the fifth time in seven games. The lackadaisical Celtics were outrebounded, 55-32, and missed 19-of-23 3-pointers blew a chance to tie the Nets for first place in the Atlantic Division. The closest they came in the second half was 14 points. "It's like we went into this game expecting to lose," Pierce said. "Our body language wasn't there. You could just see it on our faces. We had a chance to play for first place, but the sense of urgency wasn't there." New Jersey was playing at the Meadowlands for the first time since the announcement that Brooklyn developer Bruce Ratner was awarded the winning bid to purchase the team. Ratner intends to move the Nets to Brooklyn. Despite the news, a near sellout crowd of 17,533 showed up on Sunday. "It's great for New Jersey to come out and still support us," said Kidd. "We have nothing to do with the business side of things. All we can do is play good basketball, which is what we did today. The crowd was great and hopefully they continue to support us."
