One of the luckiest bounces of Vince Carter's career - five or six bounces, actually - couldn't keep the New Jersey Nets from falling behind 3-0 to the Miami Heat. Carter forced double overtime with a shot that danced all around the backboard and rim before dropping through, but there was no more magic for the Nets after that in a 108-105, double-overtime loss to the visiting Heat last night. Shaquille O'Neal had his best game of the series with 25 points, Udonis Haslem had the final go-ahead basket among his 14 points and 19 rebounds, Dwyane Wade had 22 points and 10 rebounds, and Eddie Jones added 20 points for the Heat.

The Nets also matched the longest winning streak in franchise history, having won 14 in a row from Jan. 25-Feb. 24, 2004. New Jersey broke a tie with Dallas for the longest winning streak in the NBA this season. Kidd finished with 13 points, 12 assists and 10 boards, moving within four triple-doubles of Wilt Chamberlain for third place on the career list.

Jason Kidd put it on Vince Carter during training camp. He expected Carter to vie for league most valuable player honors. "He's one of the two best players in the league," Kidd said recently. And the other? "Well, Shaq," Kidd said. All due respect, but he's got it backwards. There's still nobody that's more valuable to the New Jersey Nets than Kidd. The 32-year-old Kidd is still capable of leading a championship team - he's top 10 in the league in assists and top five in steals - but what's heartening to the Nets is that Kidd knows this season's team can't do that, and is happy, anyway.

Nuggets forward Carmelo Anthony said yesterday he was "truly sorry" for his arrest on DUI charges in Denver, and police denied giving him special treatment, even though an officer gave him a lift after his arrest and another drove his car to a city lot. "I'm here to man up to my mistake, just to let you know that I'm truly sorry for what happened and everything that's going on," Anthony said as teammate Allen Iverson stood off to the side....

The New Jersey Nets are getting to like thwarting the Washington Wizards. Jason Kidd had 11 points, 10 assists and 10 rebounds and the Nets held Michael Jordan and the visiting Wizards to a franchise-low point total, 79-65, last night. The total was one fewer than the Wizards had last season in a loss to the Chicago Bulls. "Give their defense some credit," said Jordan, who scored 12 points on 5-for-20 shooting. The point total was also a Nets record for fewest allowed.

Dikembe Mutombo will undergo surgery tomorrow to repair a torn ligament in his right wrist, sidelining the New Jersey Nets center for at least 2 months. Mutombo tore the ligament Thursday night when he was hit on the wrist by the Clippers' Eric Piatkowski. Mutombo was examined last night by Dr. Charles Melone Jr., a hand surgeon. "He told me it was one of the big ligaments that holds your wrist," said Mutombo, who had missed only 28 games in his 11-year career before coming to New Jersey in the offseason.

Alonzo Mourning was supposed to be an insurance policy for the Miami Heat, someone to give the Heat a few good minutes off the bench and take some rebounding and defensive responsibilities off Shaquille O'Neal's mammoth shoulders. Last night, Mourning was much, much more for the Heat, which took a 2-0 lead in its Eastern Conference quarterfinal series with the visiting New Jersey Nets. Mourning, who wanted out of New Jersey earlier this season because he didn't consider the Nets a championship contender, scored 21 points and grabbed nine rebounds in 16 minutes - helping the Heat to a 104-87 win. "It's important that each and every one of us stay ready," said Mourning, whose high in 19 games in his late-season return to the Heat was only 11 points.

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. - The post-Jefferson era began poorly for the New Jersey Nets, who learned yesterday that they will be without their leading scorer for the rest of the season and then went out and lost, 89-80, to the Detroit Pistons. Rasheed Wallace had 19 points and 13 rebounds, and Richard Hamilton scored 18 points for the Pistons, who extended their road winning streak to six games. Richard Jefferson watched from the bench as the Nets got 19 points from Vince Carter, 16 from Travis Best and 13 from Jason Kidd.

The New Jersey Nets' Kenyon Martin seems determined to show he shouldn't have been passed over for the NBA All-Star Game. Martin had a career-high 35 points, 12 rebounds and blocked a shot late in regulation that gave Jason Kidd the opportunity to hit a three-pointer with 1:31 left in overtime in a 109-108 win over the visiting Seattle SuperSonics last night. "I think that he's showing he's an All-Star in this league," Kidd said after the Nets improved to 22-2 at home. Desmond Mason scored a season-high 30 points, but missed a three-point attempt at the buzzer in a disheartening loss for Seattle, which rallied from a 17-point deficit in the second half.

NEW ORLEANS, Portland and Sacramento have agreed to a three-team trade sending guard Tyreke Evans to the Pelicans, center Robin Lopez to the Trail Blazers and guard Greivis Vasquez to the Kings, people familiar with the deal said. The people, who spoke to the Associated Press on condition of anonymity yesterday because NBA rules prevent confirmation of trades until July 10, say Portland is sending second-round draft pick Jeff Withey to New Orleans and a future draft pick to Sacramento as part of the deal, which was first reported by ESPN.

If Jason Collins' historic revelation Monday suggested a knack for diplomacy, it's probably not surprising given the identity of the recruiter who nearly two decades ago persuaded him and twin brother Jarron to attend Stanford. According to Lewis Katz, who owned the New Jersey Nets when they drafted Collins out of Stanford in 2001, it was a future secretary of state who drew the towering twins to Palo Alto, Calif. "They were high school phenomena. Both 7-footers," said Katz, the co-managing partner and director of Interstate General Media, which owns The Inquirer.

After hiring highly regarded coach Doug Collins in May, and taking guard Evan Turner with the No. 2 pick in the June NBA draft, the 76ers on Thursday added the well-respected Rod Thorn to their front office by naming him team president. The move reunites Thorn with Ed Stefanski, who has been the Sixers president and general manager since 2007. Stefanski, who relinquished his title of president and will remain as general manager, was on the staff when Thorn began a 10-year tenure as president of the New Jersey Nets in 2000.

Marcus Williams, in his first game as Jason Kidd's temporary replacement at point guard, combined with Richard Jefferson for New Jersey's first 10 points of overtime, and the Nets beat the Chicago Bulls, 110-102, last night. Before the game, it was learned that Minneapolis police are investigating a nightclub incident involving Jefferson. Sgt. Jesse Garcia says Jefferson allegedly put his hands on a man's neck until he lost consciousness after the man asked the uninvited player to leave a private party that he was hosting at the posh Graves 601 hotel before dawn on Jan. 27. Garcia says that when police finish investigating, evidence will be presented to the county attorney's office, which will decide if a criminal charge is warranted.

This is why the New Jersey Nets won't just give Jason Kidd away. Kidd scored seven of his nine points in the final 1:42 and added 11 assists as the Nets snapped a nine-game losing streak with an 87-80 victory over the visiting Milwaukee Bucks last night. The fans cheered loudly for Kidd, who on Monday said he wanted to be traded to a contender. "I've been here for 7 years and I've given a lot to the Nets and New Jersey's given a lot back to me," Kidd said. "For a comment to ruin everything we've had, I didn't think that was going to be the scenario.

There were fireworks, a fancy introduction of the players from the stands, and genuine excitement caused by Friday's win in Chicago as the 76ers faced New Jersey last night in their home opener. Then the game began and the energy left the building, at least for the Sixers. One night after a stirring 96-85 win over the Bulls, the Sixers were flat in a 93-88 loss to the Nets in front of 19,706 at the Wachovia Center. So much for home cooking. Actually, it tasted like burnt leather to the Sixers (1-2)
