Magic Fall Short in New Jersey 106-113

From Sportsline.com:

Jason Kidd's 69th career triple-double helped New Jersey to its ninth straight victory, while Grant Hill's latest injury left Orlando wondering about its All-Star's future.

Kidd had 16 points, 13 assists and 11 rebounds, and the Nets beat the Magic 113-106 Friday night.

Hill scored 14 points in the first half, but reaggravated the strained groin that forced him to have sports hernia surgery before the season and has kept him on the sidelines for all but 10 games this season. He tried to play in the second half, but pulled himself out after just two minutes.

"I'm running out of ideas," Hill said. "I really don't know what to do.

"I don't have any answers. It's very frustrating."

Hill has missed most of four full seasons, including the entire 2003-04 season due to ankle injuries. He missed the first 19 games this season after having sports hernia surgery Oct. 31 and just returned to action Friday after missing Wednesday's loss at Toronto.

"I felt pretty good in the first half, but then I felt something going for a loose ball right before halftime," he said. "I thought I was moving around good, but I tried to go in the third quarter and couldn't. I'll get more treatment and see how I feel tomorrow. I'm going to try to keep pressing on, because my desire is still there. But it's tough for me to keep weathering the storm."
