Bond is coming between Kidd & Josh

The connection between Jason Kidd and Josh Howard on the court has been slow to develop. Kidd predicts it’s only a matter of time.

“It’s not fair because a lot of times Josh has had the opportunities and they’re going to fall for him,” Kidd said. “We’re not going to go away from him because he’s a big part of this team.

“When he goes good for us, it makes the game so much easier. He’s going always to be an option for me and I’m always going to give him the ball, and we know those shots will start falling for him.”

Howard has only 20 points in the last two games, though both have been routs and he’s taken only 14 shots. His work at the other end of the court isn’t being ignored.

“I’ve never seen him play defense the way he’s been playing here recently,” Avery Johnson said.
