Nets Follow Script for Another Win

Fall behind by double-digits in the first half? Check. Cut the lead down by halftime? Check. Take the lead in the third? Check. Fail to put the opponent away and hold on for a narrow victory? Check. Triple-double from Kidd? Check. Twenty-plus from Carter and Jefferson? Check. It's a familiar formula and it resulted in the Nets' fifth straight victory, as they took care of the Hawks in Atlanta Saturday night. In addition, Josh Boone recorded his third career double-double and Boki Nachbar seemed to find his stroke, hitting 6-of-9 from the field, including 4-of-6 from downtown, for 16 points. Malik Allen sat out with a sore back and Jamaal Magloire was not with the team due to personal reasons. Meanwhile, Richard Jefferson insists it was only a "tweak" when he fell oddly on his knee.
