New Jersey Nets Getting Inside 2009-03-02
As the trading deadline approached last month, Richard Jefferson was rumored to be leaving Milwaukee, headed for Portland. Didn't happen. Dollars aside, the Bucks may be thankful.

Jefferson has averaged 23.6 points over his last nine games -- 18.8 in five games since the trade deadline. And he'll once again look to pay back the team that dealt him to the Bucks, the Nets, Tuesday at Milwaukee in a game with big playoff tie-breaker implications.

The Nets (26-33) enter 1-1/2 games behind the Bucks (29-33), who hold down the eighth and final playoff spot in the East. The Bulls (27-33) also are in the immediate locale, one full game behind the Bucks,-1/2 game ahead of the Nets. The Nets and Bucks are tied 1-1 in the season series and the winner Tuesday would still need a victory in the final meeting, at New Jersey Mar. 30, to claim the playoff tie-breaker.

The Bucks won the first meeting, 104-102, at Milwaukee Jan. 9 on Luke Ridnour's score with half a second left. Jefferson had a dismal night -- scoring 13 points, shooting 3-of-15 and capping it off with a defensive lapse that allowed Bobby Simmons to hit a three-pointer to tie with nine seconds left, setting the scene for Ridnour's basket. The loss was doubly painful for the Nets, who lost forward Yi Jianlian to a broken right pinkie.

Jefferson had a game-high 27 points Feb. 3 but it didn't matter as the Nets rode Vince Carter's fifth career triple-double (15 points, 10 rebounds, 12 assists) and 22 points by Brook Lopez to a 99-85 victory at New Jersey.

HORNETS 99, NETS 96: The Nets wasted a brilliant comeback from a 13-point, fourth quarter deficit with dismal execution in the final minute-and-a-half, paving the way for the Hornets' victory. The Nets led by four at 2:00 but then missed their last three shots, committed two costly turnovers and surrendered a big offensive rebound to the Hornets who capitalized. Devin Harris scored 26 points and passed for a season-high 14 assists while Vince Carter also collected 26 points in the defeat that ended a two-game winning streak.
