Jefferson Played a goody

Postby Nick on Thu Nov 14, 2002 1:12 pm

Jefferson responded to a sub-par outing with a career-high 27 points to lift the New Jersey Nets to a 91-82 victory over the San Antonio Spurs.

Jefferson managed just six points in Saturday's loss at Chicago but came through with a big effort against San Antonio. The Nets improved to 6-0 when Jefferson reaches double figures.

Two free throws by Jefferson late in the third quarter gave New Jersey the lead for good. The Nets opened the fourth period with a pair of free throws by Jason Kidd and a jumper by Lucious Harris for a 68-61 lead with 11:15 remaining.

The Spurs pulled within 74-70 on a dunk by Malik Rose with 7:45 left before the Nets went on a 10-2 run. Harris had a pair of baskets in the run, including one to cap it for an 84-73 cushion with just under four minutes to go.

Kidd finished with 18 points, eight assists and eight rebounds. Tim Duncan, who edged Kidd for the MVP award last season, scored 21 points to lead San Antonio.

Jefferson is my pick for MIP. That was the greatest move in Nets history getting rid of Van Horn and making Jefferson a starter. He is playing twice as good as Van Horn was last season. He is shooting much better and really fitting in with the Nets running game.
