Kidd hits big shot in Knicks win over Nets
Jason Kidd not only missed the Knicks’ first Brooklyn encounter with back spasms, he refused to watch it while laid up in his Manhattan pad. “It’s tough to watch games,’’ Kidd said last night. “I didn’t watch it.’’
Kidd was in Brooklyn for the first time last night and rocked the borough, avenging last month’s overtime loss in which he did not participate. The final scene of last night’s 100-97 classic was Kidd bending his knees and throwing a sharp fist pump into the Brooklyn night at the final buzzer after knocking out his former club.
Kidd’s game-winning, left-wing, 3-pointer with 24.1 seconds left capped another wonderful night during this renaissance season, as he finished with 18 points — 6 of 9 from the field, 6 of 8 on 3-pointers. He had six assists, no turnovers and six rebounds. It was a masterpiece for a 39-year-old who seems to be getting younger this season.
