The Nets have won their 14th staright game and 13th under new coach Lawrence Frank.

The Toronto Raptors made things interesting early in the fourth quarter. Then New Jersey Nets coach Lawrence Frank put his starters back in.

Kenyon Martin collected 25 points and 15 rebounds as the Nets defeated the Raptors, 86-74, for their NBA season-high 14th straight victory.

Detroit and San Antonio each had won 13 consecutive games this season, but no team had won 14 in a row since Dallas began last season 14-0.

Jason Kidd added 17 points and seven assists as New Jersey improved to 13-0 under Frank, who set a new record for consecutive wins to begin a coaching career in one of the four major North American sports.

I think a change was needed for the Nets, they really seem to be responding well to the new coach.

Was it really Brian fault?

Do you mean former coach Byron Scott? It was not his fault at all, sometimes teams just need a change to spark things and get the player's attention. I think he'll go on to coach again real soon, he's definitely capable.

Troy Hudson filled the shoes of Sam Cassell just fine, helping end the New Jersey Nets' winning streak at 14 games.

Hudson, making his first start of the season in place of the injured Cassell, scored a season-high 29 points as Minnesota beat New Jersey 81-68 Wednesday night, handing Nets coach Lawrence Frank his first loss.

Kenyon Martin led the Nets with 18 points while Kerry Kittles and Jason Kidd each had 11. Richard Jefferson and Jason Collins each had 10 points. Martin nearly had a double-double by halftime with 10 points and nine rebounds, but all of those points came in the first quarter.

It was the toughest test for New Jersey since Frank replaced Byron Scott as coach of the two-time defending Eastern Conference champions on Jan. 26. Only four of the Nets' wins in their franchise-record streak were against teams with winning records.

wolves just seem to have players that seem to step it up at the right times. This is the kindof basketball that wins championships.

It is the kindof game that wins champs, but they have to be able to rebound from losses and i expect they can do that, cause they are a team now that doesnt like to lose and that is a very dangerous team.
