Miracle Finish Propels Nets Over Bulls

The Nets led the Bulls by seven points with less than three minutes to play Saturday night at the Meadowlands, but a 12-2 Chicago run gave the visitors a three point lead with less than 30 seconds to go. The lead was two with 7.1 on the clock when Ben Gordon missed the second of two free throws. Jason Kidd then grabbed the rebound, raced down the court and found Richard Jefferson cutting to the basket for a layup and a foul. He hit the free throw and a Vince Carter block at the buzzer preserved the win. Jefferson and Carter each finished with 28 points and 13 and 12 rebounds respectively. Kidd recorded his first triple-double of the season with 10 points, 11 rebounds and 11 assists. The Nets committed 20 turnovers, but outrebounded the Bulls 51-37. It is their eighth straight win over Chicago and 18th victory in the last 20 meetings between the two teams.
