The New Jersey Nets beat the Detroit Pistons 79-75. For the Nets this has to raise your confidence before the playoffs. The Pistons have slipped of late and need to start winning and get back to were the where. Jason Kidd got 7 points and 14 boards in 39 minutes. Hard to believe Kidd can be the player with the 2nd most boards when Big Ben isn't #1. Vince Carter got 22 points and 7 boards in 42 minutes. VC did a great job against the tough Pistons defense. Nenad Krstic got 16 points and 9 boards in 41 minutes. Krstic shot a lot that tells you the Nets want to get him rolling. Richard Jefferson got 14 points and 5 assists in 39 minutes. Jefferson had a nice wrap around dunk in the 1st half that surprised me that the Pistons couldn't stop it. Antonio McDyess got 11 points and 18 boards in 26 minutes. McDyess gave them amazing rebounding production in just 26 minutes and that's a luxury to have for Detroit. Chauncey Billups got 9 points and 7 boards in 35 minutes. Billups was okay he didn't really get going on offense to power the Pistons back.
