The New Jersey Nets beat the Boston Celtics 118-116 in overtime. Nenad Krstic had 16 points and 6 rebounds in 33 minutes. Krstic has turned out to be a great player. The Vince Carter trade is what got him a starting role. Vince Carter had 14 points and 4 assists in 24 minutes. Carter has really become the star player he didn't want to be in Toronto and now does the little things like pass. Jason Kidd had 9 and 6 rebounds in 24 minutes. Kidd will hopefully be healthy through the season and the Nets will be a premiere playoff club. Marc Jackson had 17 points and 9 rebounds in 30 minutes. I like Jackson coming off the bench for Krstic. He supplies more toughness than Krstic and more experience. The Celtics had 8 blocks to the Nets 4.
