=== New Jersey Nets Team Report – November 8 ===
(Sports Network) – Jason Kidd collected 19 points, 10 rebounds and seven
assists to lead the New Jersey Nets past the Boston Celtics, 94-87, Friday
at the FleetCenter.
Jason Collins contributed a career-high 19 points and also pulled down 13
boards for New Jersey, which halted a two-game skid. Kerry Kittles had 13
points and Aaron Williams added 11 for the Nets.
New Jersey has won the last four regular-season meetings between the two
teams. The Nets also posted a four-game sweep of the Celtics in a second-
round playoff series last year.
New Jersey placed forward Rodney Rogers on the injured list and activated
guard Tamar Slay. Rogers has an injured thumb, while Slay had been sidelined
with a shin injury. Slay played 13 minutes Friday and scored nine points.
The Nets are off until Sunday when they travel to Detroit for a rematch of
last season’s Eastern Conference final.
