Look out. The Nets have won four of their last five. In one of the more intense and games of the season where the Nets showed some rare emotion, they came up big down the stretch once again to beat the Bucks in Milwaukee Saturday night. The game was tied with a minute to go, and Vince Carter gave the Nets the lead with a drive and Malik Allen made it a four-point game with a jumper. With a three-point lead and 12 seconds on the clock, they employed their foul-to-prevent-a-three strategy, which worked because the Bucks couldn't hit their free throws. The big three led the way again. Jason Kidd hit some huge shots in the final period while frustrating Michael Redd on the other end, finishing with 17 points and 15 assists. Carter led the team with 23 points and dished out seven assists himself. And Richard Jefferson added 19 and had a key defensive play in the closing minutes. The Nets are now 7-5 on the road and 12-3 in games decided in overtime or by five points or less.
