Kidd, Nets face Raptors, aim for third straight win

Dec 15, 2006 - 3:10 PM New Jersey (9-12) at Toronto (8-14) 7:00 pm EST

TORONTO (Ticker) -- Jason Kidd has done everything he can to help the New Jersey Nets get back on track.

With three triple-doubles in his last four games, Kidd will look to continue his inspired play when the Nets face the Toronto Raptors, who are playing without star forward Chris Bosh.

In a 108-95 win over Milwaukee on Wednesday, Kidd recorded his 80th career triple-double - two more than Hall of Famer Wilt Chamberlain for third on the all-time list.

Along with Kidd's all-around play, Vince Carter scored 36 points on Wednesday. Two days earlier, New Jersey used a similar formula, as Carter scored 37 points and Kidd registered a triple-double with 12 points, 13 assists and 10 rebounds in a 105-92 victory over Memphis.

Kidd notched his first triple-double this campaign against the Raptors in the season opener for both squads. He collected 14 points, 10 rebounds and 10 assists in a 102-92 victory on November 1.

Rookie Andrea Bargnani scored 15 of his season-high 23 points in the second half as the Raptors ended a four-game losing streak with a 91-84 victory over Orlando on Wednesday.

T.J. Ford had 14 points and five assists for Toronto, which improved to 3-11 on the road and played its third straight contest without Bosh, who has an injured knee.
