Game Story

EAST RUTHERFORD, New Jersey (Ticker) -- The Toronto Raptors made things interesting early in the fourth quarter. Then New Jersey Nets coach Lawrence Frank put his starters back in. Kenyon Martin collected 25 points and 15 rebounds as the Nets defeated the Raptors, 86-74, for their NBA season-high 14th straight victory. Detroit and San Antonio each had won 13 consecutive games this season, but no team had won 14 in a row since Dallas began last season 14-0. Every win but one during the streak has come against the weak Eastern Conference. The Nets face a stern test at Western Conference power Minnesota on Wednesday. "It's not a championship game tomorrow," Nets point guard Jason Kidd said. "Everyone is talking like it's Game Seven. We're getting ahead of ourselves. Minnesota played tonight (winning at Milwaukee), we played tonight. It's a game on the road that's scheduled and for some odd reason, everyone wants to make this into a bigger game. Hopefully we show up and win on the road." Kidd added 17 points and seven assists as New Jersey improved to 13-0 under Frank, who set a new record for consecutive wins to begin a coaching career in one of the four major North American sports. "He obviously has been preparing to be a head coach for a long time," Nets president Rod Thorn said. "It's just the right circumstances at the right moment and history was made. It's an incredible feat." New Jersey entered the fourth quarter with a 73-57 lead and its starters on the bench. Shorthanded Toronto began the period with nine straight points, forcing Frank to re-insert his best players with 8:34 remaining. Toronto pulled within 73-68 on a pair of free throws by Jerome Moiso with 7:53 left before New Jersey again took control. "Sometimes you just have to call timeout just to stop the momentum a little bit," Frank said. "It was just in the ebb and flow of the game." "We had the game under control, they kept playing and we didn't start the fourth quarter well," Kidd said. "We were fortunate to hold on and win the game. Throughout this winning, we haven't relaxed. We relaxed in the fourth quarter and you can see what happens when you do relax." Frank was hit with a technical foul for sarcastically clapping when referee Ed Rush called a foul on the Raptors after several minutes of rough play had resulted in no whistles. Donyell Marshall sank the free throw to make it 77-71, but the Nets reeled off nine straight points. Roger Mason scored 18 points to pace the Raptors, who once again were without injured stars Vince Carter (sprained ankle) and Jalen Rose (broken hand). Also, starting point guard Alvin Williams sat out with a sore right knee. "It is tough," Mason said. "I'm a role player on this team. A lot of guys that are playing big minutes now are role players. Our big guns are out, so we just have to do what we can and try to withstand a storm right now and try to get some wins." The Raptors shot just 39 percent (25-of-64) and were outrebounded, 45-30. "We were pretty limited without three of our starters," said Raptors coach Kevin O'Neill, whose squad lost at home to New Jersey on Friday, 91-72. "We will compare our team to others when we get back to our full strength, to have any chance to make the playoffs."
