This is why the New Jersey Nets won't just give Jason Kidd away.
Kidd scored of seven of his nine points in the final minute and 42 seconds and added 11 assists as the Nets snapped a nine-game losing streak with an 87-80 victory over the Milwaukee Bucks tonight in East Rutherford, New Jersey.
The win came just a day after Kidd made comments that it might be best to trade him. He expressed frustration on his team's disappointing play.
Then the Nets went out and held the Bucks to under 38 percent shooting on the way to the victory.
Richard Jefferson scored 20 points and Vince Carter had 16 points and matched a season high with 12 rebounds for the Nets. Bostjan Nachbar had 14 points.
Royal Ivey scored 19 points for the Bucks, who were without leading scorer Michael Redd for the second straight game because of a left knee strain that will also keep him out of tomorrow night's game at Philadelphia.
Mo Williams and Bobby Simmons each added 14 points for Milwaukee.
