Kidd passes all-time greats

The Sports Xchange

--During the regular season, Jason Kidd passed Michael Jordan for second place on the NBA's all-time steals list and finished the season with 2,559, well behind all-time leader John Stockton (3,265). Kidd is also moving up the all-time postseason steals list. His career playoff-high seven steals in Game 1 moved Kidd past Clyde Drexler (278) and for seventh place on the list. Kidd entered Monday's Game 2 with 285 and added three more, moving him closer to No. 6 Maurice Cheeks (295) and No. 5 Larry Bird (296). Kidd also joined the exclusive 1,000-point, 1,000-rebound, 1,000-assist playoff club along with Magic Johnson, Michael Jordan, Larry Bird and Scottie Pippen.

--Mavs swingman Vince Carter had never come off the bench with regularity in his career until joining the team this season as a free agent. That said, Carter is made his first playoff appearance as a reserve in Saturday's Game 1. Carter had started all 56 of his previous playoffs games. He had 13 points and seven rebounds in Game 1 and followed it up with an awful Game 2, scoring five points on 2-of-9 shooting.

"We come away from these two games disappointed, but not dismayed, and you tip your hat to the fact that they (Oklahoma City) have made some big-time plays." -- Mavs coach Rick Carlisle, on losing Games 1 and 2 by a total of four points.
