Nets Tie Franchise Record With 14th Straight Win

The Nets continued their hot streak Thursday night, defeating the Charlotte Bobcats at the Meadowlands and tying a franchise record with their 14th straight win. The streak is also the longest in the NBA this season. New Jersey built an early double-digit lead, but then let Charlotte back into it, and the game was tied at the half. The game remained tight until midway in the third quarter, when the Nets went on a 21-8 run to take control. They cruised the rest of the way for their 23rd victory in the last 26 home game. Richard Jefferson was on fire all night, shooting 13-of-19 from the field for 40 points and Jason Kidd capped off his 74th career triple-double with a garbage-time rebound. He is now just four shy of Wilt Chamberlain for third all-time. Vince Carter scored 20 points on 8-of-15 shooting, his 19th straight game with 20-plus, which is a franchise record.
