Nets 98 — Pacers 91.
I took my brother to the Meadowlands for his birthday gift, and we both got to witness the six-foot-four bundle of unbelievable clutch that is Jason Kidd
completely take over the game in the second half, finishing one measly rebound shy of a triple-double. There was some fine play by Kenyon Martin and the highly underrated Aaron Williams, but this was a showcase performance for Kidd (well, a showcase second half; he had only five of his 31 points at the half).
Unfortunately, if the Nets can't do better than 5,000 empty seats for what any basketball fan had to know would be one of the biggest games of the regualr season, we're probably going to have to watch Kidd play somewhere else next year. Frigging shame, really, but I suppose you just can't ask people to miss the new episode of "Are You Hot? The Search for America’s Sexiest People."
