Game Story

EAST RUTHERFORD, New Jersey (Ticker) -- Vince Carter and Jason Kidd refuse to squander their rejuvenated season against the NBA's worst teams. Carter scored 23 points and Kidd nearly posted another triple-double as the Nets extended their winning streak to three games with a 94-80 victory over the struggling Utah Jazz. New Jersey was watching its playoff hopes slipping away just six days after losing for the fourth time in five games. But the Nets have bounced back to win four of five. New Jersey entered Friday just 2 1/2 games behind Philadelphia and Orlando for the eighth and final playoff spot in the Eastern Conference. Ripe for a letdown, the Nets dominated the third quarter against the Jazz and were able to get Carter and Kidd some much-needed rest in the fourth. "Right now, you can't look past any opponent," Carter said. "We've made some adjustments, refocused and stepped up. We only have so many games left and we're right in the mix. We can't take a night off, can't take a play off." "Things were not going well for us, but we're trying to build," Kidd said. "We're chasing people, but we're just trying to compete." New Jersey squandered an early nine-point lead before pulling away in the third quarter. The Nets scored 27 points on 10-of-17 shooting in the period while holding Utah 12 points on 5-of-19, opening things up with a 17-2 run. New Jersey started the stretch with 11 straight points, highlighted by six from Carter, before Matt Harpring buried a jumper to end a three-minute scoring drought for Utah. Brian Scalabrine followed with a 20-footer off a jump ball and scored consecutive fast-break baskets off feeds from Kidd, including a wide-open dunk that gave the Nets a 68-49 bulge with 72 seconds left. "Vince and Jason just imposed their will on the game," Nets coach Lawrence Frank said. "We lost concentration," Jazz forward Andrei Kirilenko said. "We did a good job to get back in the second quarter. Halftime it was three points. We had a chance, but a very small chance." Kidd left the game after the ensuing timeout and did not return, playing only 32 minutes. Carter did not play in the fourth quarter, giving the Nets stars rest before their important home-and-home series against the Pacers. "It's always big any time Vince and I have a fourth quarter off," Kidd said. "It helps when we're not injured and playing well. That third quarter was big for us." "They were (angry)," Frank said. "They want to play 40 minutes every night, despite what (the media) writes. But any time we can get them rest, it's beneficial." Kidd finished with 10 points, nine rebounds and eight assists and reserve Travis Best scored 14 points for New Jersey, which got 42 points from its bench. "We need (the bench) to play well," Kidd said. "The things about this team is, you never know who is going to step up." Kirilenko scored 15 points and Harpring 14 for the Jazz, who have lost eight straight and fell to 0-4 on a five-game road trip. "Our defense is pretty much non-existent," Utah coach Jerry Sloan said. "There is a number of things the way we're playing that obviously makes it hard for us to win." The Jazz have lost six consecutive road games and 11 of their last 12.
