SACRAMENTO, CALIF. (AP) - Vince Carter scored 25 points, Devin Harris made the go-ahead basket and added 18 points, and the New Jersey Nets beat the Sacramento Kings 116-114 in overtime Wednesday night.

Trailing by one point following a timeout, Harris inbounded the ball and got it right back. He drove to the basket against Bobby Jackson, then pulled up for a jumper to the right of the foul line, giving New Jersey a 115-114 lead with 12 seconds left.

Jackson’s long 3-pointer was an airball in the closing seconds and the Nets secured the rebound. Jarvis Hayes made a free throw with 2.4 seconds left and Brad Miller’s heave from halfcourt fell short to give the Nets the victory, their first at Arco Arena since Nov. 30, 1997.
