Nets Comeback to Beat Bulls

Down 5 with 2 minutes to play, the Nets scored 10 straight points down the stretch to pull out the victory in Chicago Tuesday night. In his first start as a Net, Vince Carter led the team with 25 points, including 2 huge baskets to start the 10-0 run. Nenad Krstic, who had a career-high 17 points, scored the go-ahead basket on a fast-break feed from Jason Kidd. Kidd, who led New Jersey with 11 assists and 11 rebounds, then hit his first shot of the game, a 3 pointer to give the Nets a 4 point lead with less than 30 seconds to play. The Nets shot just 38% from the field, but were able to capitalize on 25 Chicago turnovers.
