Jason Kidd played and the Nets ended their losing streak Tuesday night at the IZOD Center. After the Bucks jumped out to an early lead, the game was tight through most of the first half, and the Nets finished the second quarter with a 7-0 run to take a five-point lead into the break. As they did in Minnesota on Sunday, they led by 12 early in the fourth and when Milwaukee cut the lead down to one with two minutes to go, the Nets looked like they might blow another one. But then Kidd connected on his first field goal of the night (a three from the right wing), Richard Jefferson hit a baseline jumper on the next possession, and the Nets got enough stops down the stretch to get a win for the first time in 20 days. Jefferson led the Nets with 20 points on 8-of-12 from the field. Vince Carter shot just 6-for-22, but recorded a double-double with 16 points and 12 boards, and Boki Nachbar provided a big lift off the bench with 14 points. Kidd dished out 11 assists to go along with nine points on 1-of-6 from the field.
