Nets Rebound

Jason Kidd more than made up for the absence of Richard Jefferson and the not-feeling-so-hot-ness of Vince Carter Wednesday night at the Meadowlands, controlling the game from start to finish as the Nets won comfortably over the Bucks, 100-87. For just the second time this season, the Nets outrebounded their opponent, and they did it by a margin of 15 boards (45-30). Kidd scored 11 of his team's first 16 points and 25 overall, shooting 9-14 from the field, including 3-5 from downtown. He also pitched in 11 assists, 8 rebounds, 3 steals and a blocked shot, while sharing the Michael Redd defensive duties with Antoine Wright, who played perhaps the best game of his career. Nenad Krstic added 22 points, 7 boards and 5 dimes, while Clifford Robinson showed some signs of life with 12 points off the bench. Meanwhile, Jefferson promises he will make his return during the team's West Coast road trip, which begins Monday in Seattle.
