Basketball: Kidd delivers against Nets

Jason Kidd, 39, who was drafted into the NBA when current Cal freshman Tyrone Wallace was 11 days old, still can rise up in the big moments.

Kidd made a tie-breaking 3-pointer with 24 seconds left and the New York Knicks beat the Brooklyn Nets, 100-97, at the new Barclay Center. Kidd finished with 18 points, six rebounds and six assists in 38 minutes against his old team.

Kidd pumped a fist afterward, commenting, “I’m a competitor. I want to win.”

The Knicks improved to 16-5.
