EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) -Jason Kidd had his 11th postseason triple-double, breaking a tie with Larry Bird for second place on the career list, and the New Jersey Nets beat Cleveland 96-85 Saturday to cut the Cavaliers' lead in the series to 2-1.
Kidd, who is averaging a triple-double in this postseason, finished with 23 points, 14 assists and 13 rebounds. For good measure, he even took some turns defending LeBron James, who was limited to 18 points in the lowest-scoring postseason game of his career.
Vince Carter and Richard Jefferson also scored 23 points for the Nets, who won their 10th straight home game and will try to even the second-round series Monday night in Game 4 before the series returns to Cleveland for Game 5 on Wednesday.
James was just 5-of-16 from the field and failed to score at least 20 points for the first time in his 20 playoff games. He added 12 assists, but looked frustrated late in the game after hitting the bottom of the rim on a reverse layup attempt.
