Game Story

WASHINGTON (Ticker) -- With Kenyon Martin out, Jason Kidd went from passer to scorer. Kidd scored 30 points and added nine assists to led the New Jersey Nets to a 98-85 victory over the Washington Wizards. "Whatever you throw at Jason Kidd, he's going to find a way to beat you," Washington coach Eddie Jordan said. "So whether he's knocking down threes or driving to basket or throwing a kick in and helping his teammates, he's going to find a way." Jordan spent four seasons as a Nets assistant before joining Washington during the offseason. As an opposing coach, he got to experience how difficult it is to defend Kidd. Richard Jefferson had one of the best games of his career with 19 points, 10 rebounds and nine assists for New Jersey (2-1). Third-year player Brandon Armstrong also made a major contribution with a career-high 13 points. Brian Scalabrine started in place of Martin, who severely twisted his ankle in Friday's win over Minnesota. Scalabrine had 12 points and six rebounds. "We have some guys who have been in our system for a few years and these guys have been working their butts off just for an opportunity," Nets coach Byron Scott said. "In the last couple of games, they've gotten that opportunity, and they're just going out and trying to take advantage of it. Brandon was fantastic tonight." First-round pick Jarvis Hayes led Washington (1-2) with 16 points. Gilbert Arenas added 12 and Larry Hughes 10. Washington cut the deficit to 69-65 at the end of the third quarter as Juan Dixon hit a runner in the closing seconds. But New Jersey outscored Washington, 29-20, in the final period as Armstrong scored 11 points in the last eight minutes. Arenas and Hughes struggled with their playmaking, committing a combined eight turnovers with just six assists. Washington had 22 turnovers overall. "Larry and Gilbert just have to be a bit more self-disciplined and trust in their teammates," Jordan said. "Play at a higher level, concentrate on defending and getting up into people and that will help your offense a little bit." Starters Kwame Brown and Brendan Haywood failed to take advantage of their height advantage in the paint. The duo shot a combined 3-of-8 and had six and four points, respectively. But New Jersey also had an added advantage on defense because the Wizards are running a new offense similar to the Nets' system. "They're running a new offense so it's going to take time for them to get familiar and comfortable with it," Kidd said. "As the season goes on, they're going to get better and understand where they get their shots." The reserves picked up the slack for Washington with 37 points. Etan Thomas had 10 rebounds and nine points but it wasn't enough as the Wizards lost their second straight game. Washington outrebounded New Jersey, 48-39, but shot a dismal 21 percent (3-of-14) from 3-point range. New Jersey made 6-of-14 3-pointers. "It didn't happen for us overnight in the first yearthat we ran it (the offense)," Kidd added. "We didn't look good on some nights and on some nights we looked great, so it's just a matter of time."
