Bench Fuels Third Straight Win

With Saturday night's game in the balance late in the third quarter after the Magic took their first lead since the opening minute, Marcus Williams went on a personal 8-2 run that eventually turned into a 21-8 run for the Nets, giving them control of a game that they led most of the way. The Nets' bench combined to outscore that of the Magic 34-14, while also grabbing 20 rebounds, led by a career-high 10 boards from Boki Nachbar. Vince Carter caught fire early and led all scorers with 32 points on 12-of-23 from the field, while Jason Kidd added 10 points, nine boards and six assists.
