Nets beat Raptors

Kidd gets triple-double

By The Associated Press

        EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. — Jason Kidd had 31 points, 10 assists and 10 rebounds for his second straight triple-double, leading the New Jersey Nets past the Toronto Raptors 98-91 Saturday.

        Kidd, who scored New Jersey's final nine points, shot 10-for-17 from the floor and 9-for-10 at the line. Rookie Richard Jefferson added 17, and Kenyon Martin, who picked up three fouls in a 12-second span of the second quarter, had 16.

        Vince Carter scored 26 points, and Antonio Davis had 14 for Toronto, which had its three-game winning streak snapped.

        New Jersey improved to 31-14 — the best record in the East — and has won seven straight at home.

        Jazz 97, Trail Blazers 96

        SALT LAKE CITY — Karl Malone scored 24 points and had 13 rebounds, and Scott Padgett came off the bench for 11 points, hitting 5-of-8, as Utah outlasted Portland.

        John Stockton added 17 points and nine assists and hit a big layup with 36.5 seconds to play as the Jazz ended Portland's five-game winning streak.

        The Jazz won in their final home game until Feb. 28. Next comes a franchise-record nine-game road trip during the Winter Olympics.

        Bonzi Wells led the Blazers with 24 points, scoring 11 in the first quarter. Scottie Pippen had 17 points while Damon Stoudamire scored 14.

        76ers 86, Bucks 81

        MILWAUKEE — Allen Iverson scored 25 points, and Derrick Coleman added 19 as Philadelphia rallied late to defeat Milwaukee.

        Anthony Mason's rebound basket put Milwaukee on top 76-71 with 5:43 remaining, but the Sixers responded with seven consecutive points. Two free throws by Coleman gave Philadelphia a 78-76 lead with 1:57 left.

        Ray Allen had 20 points, and Glenn Robinson added 13 for the Bucks, which lost for the fourth time in five home games.

        Iverson, listed as probable before the game with flu-like symptoms, played 47 minutes, but made just 9 of 30 shots.

        Hawks 101, Clippers 94

        ATLANTA — Jason Terry scored 30 points and Shareef Abdur-Rahim added 27 as Atlanta snapped a six-game losing streak by beating the Los Angeles Clippers.

        The Hawks, who had lost 12 of 13, trailed by 13 points in the third quarter before rallying.

        The Clippers were coming off impressive road victories over Dallas and San Antonio.

        Eric Piatkowski scored 22, 15 in the first half, to lead Los Angeles. The Clippers led 63-50 in the third quarter and looked like they might win in a rout, but Abdur-Rahim scored nine points in a 17-2 spurt.

        Bulls 97, SuperSonics 91

        SEATTLE — A.J. Guyton scored 13 of his 15 points in the fourth quarter as Chicago overcame a 13-point deficit to earn a rare road victory.

        The Bulls ended a 26-game road losing streak against Western Conference teams, dating to a victory over the Clippers on Feb. 6, 2000, in Los Angeles.

        The Bulls won for only the second time in 23 road games this season, improving to 10-35 overall, while the Sonics lost their third straight home game after a 3-1 road trip.

        Brad Miller led Chicago with 17 points and 13 rebounds, while Ron Artest added 16 points and eight steals.

        Vin Baker scored 23 points, nine in the final quarter, and Gary Payton had 21 for the Sonics.

        Pistons 115, Cavaliers 107

        CLEVELAND — Jerry Stackhouse scored 23 points — 18 in the second half — as Detroit made 42 free throws and its fourth straight road game, topping Cleveland.

        Corliss Williamson added 17 for the Pistons, who used a 12-0 run in the fourth quarter to win for the fifth time in six games.

        Detroit got to the line 51 times to 30 for Cleveland. The Pistons' 42 successful free throws were an NBA season high, breaking the 39 Utah made on Nov. 23.

        Jon Barry and rookie Zeljko Rebraca added 14 points apiece for the Pistons, whose reserves scored 57 points.

        Ricky Davis scored 24 of his 28 points after halftime for the Cavaliers, who have lost 14 of 15.
