NBA ROUNDUP Saturday's other games
Nets 98, Raptors 91
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- Jason Kidd had 31 points, 10 assists and 10 rebounds for his second straight triple-double, leading New Jersey. Kidd, who also had a triple-double Thursday against Milwaukee, did it all for the Nets on an afternoon when Kenyon Martin was plagued by foul trouble and Keith Van Horn's shooting slump continued. Kidd, who scored New Jersey's final nine points, shot 10-for-17 from the floor, 2-for-2 from 3-point range and 9-for-10 at the line. Rookie Richard Jefferson added 17, and 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.
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 to lead Utah. 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 have a franchise-record nine-game road trip while the Delta Center stages figure skating competition 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. Rasheed Wallace was thrown out midway through the third quarter after he yelled in Hollins' face, arguing that he'd been fouled. Wallace, who last season led the NBA with 41 technicals, left with 13 points on 6-of-9 shooting.
76ers 86, Bucks 81
MILWAUKEE -- Allen Iverson scored 25 points, and Derrick Coleman added 19 as Philadelphia rallied late in a rematch of last year's Eastern Conference finals. Eric Snow's turnaround jumper from the free-throw line made it 80-78 with 1:23 remaining. Iverson's basket from the top of the key made it 82-78, before Michael Redd's 3-pointer from the top right cut it to 82-81 in the final 10 seconds. Snow made two free throws to put the Sixers up 84-81. After a timeout, Allen inbounded from the left side, but Redd's 3-point attempt hit the front of the rim.
Hawks 101, Clippers 94
ATLANTA -- Jason Terry scored 30 points and Shareef Abdur-Rahim added 27 as Atlanta snapped a six-game losing streak. Eric Piatkowski scored 22 to lead Los Angeles.
Bulls 97, SuperSonics 91
SEATTLE -- A.J. Guyton scored 13 of his 15 points in the fourth quarter as the Chicago Bulls overcame a 13-point deficit to earn a rare road victory.
