Game Story

NEW ORLEANS (Ticker) -- After referee Bennie Adams gave him a chance, J.R. Smith looked his age. Smith was unable to convert at the free-throw line with 1.5 seconds remaining in overtime, allowing the New Jersey Nets to escape with an 86-85 victory over the New Orleans Hornets. In a wild ending to an otherwise sloppy game, the Nets had taken an 86-84 lead with 2.5 seconds left when Jason Kidd converted a three-point play. The basket came after Jason Collins missed two free throws and had a short follow blocked before Kidd ran down the ball in the corner and made a driving layup while banging into Chris Andersen, who hit the floor hard. "At that point, after the miss, I tried to go in and try to get it to the basket," Kidd said. "I took a peek at the clock, to see if we had time. Everybody was scrambling. My first reaction was to drive it to the basket. If I get fouled, I make the free throws, and if not, I lay it in." Following a timeout, the Hornets went to Smith, a 19-year-old rookie who had a big second half. The Nets had a foul to give and Kidd grabbed Smith as he was attempting to shoot. Mike Callahan initially ruled the foul was on the floor before he was overruled by Adams, sending Smith to the line with a chance to win it. "We went and told the officials that we were going to foul once the ball was in," Kidd said. "There's no way, unless somebody is facing the basket, that it should be three shots. I didn't think Smith was facing the basket when he caught the ball." A 70 percent foul shooter, Smith missed his first two attempts, then banked in his final attempt while trying to miss. "I've beaten myself up over it because I know I should have made the free throws," Smith said. "Yet at the same time I have to regroup and prepare myself for the next game." The misses overshadowed a productive night for one of the Hornets' building blocks. Smith scored 17 of his 23 points after halftime as New Orleans rallied from a 19-point deficit. "I thought he (Smith) made some big shots and some smart plays," Hornets coach Byron Scott said. "Unfortunately at the end, that's the part he's going to think about the most instead of how really well he's developing and how far he's come along." Vince Carter had 24 points and 10 rebounds and Kidd contributed 15 points, nine assists, and seven rebounds for the Nets, who stopped a three-game losing streak. Kidd moved past Tim Hardaway into 11th-place on the all-time assists list. Kidd has 7,101 career assists. "It's one of those games, after we've lost three in a row, that we just have to find a way to win," Nets coach Lawrence Frank said. "I thought Jason showed his warrior spirit. Him getting that offensive rebound and driving it right to the rim was just huge. That's what separates him from others. It wasn't pretty, but we just had to find a way to win, and our guys did that." Jacque Vaughn scored 12 points in the first half, helping the Nets to a 45-34 advantage. But the Hornets battled back after intermission and pulled even at 75-75 with 58 seconds left in the fourth quarter after Speedy Claxton split a pair of free throws. After Carter and Andersen traded baskets, the Hornets had a chance to win it but Bostjan Nachbar missed a 3-pointer as time expired in regulation. Andersen hustled his way to 12 points and 11 rebounds. He even did a few push-ups after his follow shot tied the game at 77-77 with 30 seconds left in regulation.
