Can Kidd keep up with Nelson?

By Tim MacMahon

ORLANDO, Fla. -- Quick point guards give Jason Kidd problems at this point of his career.

That's a list that includes Orlando's Jameer Nelson.

Nelson got to the bucket on the first possession after leaving Kidd flat-footed with a wicked crossover. Nelson had another nice drive minutes later.

That's a trend that will eventually lead to vicious Dwight Howard dunks with Brendan Haywood comes over to help.

And it's not just Nelson who's giving the Mavs fits off the dribble. Vince Carter has temporarily overcome his paint allergy with a couple of nice drives for layups.
