EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J., Feb. 28 (UPI) -- Devin Harris scored 21 points in his first game with New Jersey Thursday, leading the Nets past Milwaukee 120-106.

Harris was obtained by the Nets Feb. 19 in the trade that sent Jason Kidd to the Dallas Mavericks. Harris' debut was delayed because of a sprained left ankle, but in his first effort he helped the Nets improve to 3-2 since the big trade.

Vince Carter and Richard Jefferson added 19 points each for New Jersey, which has defeated Milwaukee three times in a row.

The Bucks were led by Michael Redd with 33 points and Maurice Williams with 24.

Harris entered the game with 2:30 to play in the first period and New Jersey promptly went on a 20-5 run. DeSagana Diop, also obtained by New Jersey in the trade, capped the surge with a dunk that gave the Nets a 44-27 advantage.

New Jersey's 68 points in the first half were a season high.
