Big Three Lead the Way to Victory

A win is a win, even if it comes against the worst team in the league. The Nets got off the schneid (for now) with a convincing victory over the Memphis Grizzlies Monday at the Meadowlands. Jason Kidd recorded his 79th triple-double (passing Wilt Chamberlain for third all-time) and Vince Carter set a franchise record with nine threes as the Nets led from start to finish. Just like they did on Saturday against Boston, the Nets built a big lead early on (30-10 a minute into the second), but this time, they resisted any run that the opponent made, as Memphis never cut the lead to single digits. Carter finished with 37 points, Kidd contributed 13, 10 and 12 and Richard Jefferson pitched in 16 points on 7-of-9 from the field while holding Mike Miller scoreless.
