The Brooklyn Nets went into Miami Wednesday night for their first game with the defending league champion Miami Heat of the season, and were overwhelmed to the score of 103-73, marking the Heat's 11th straight victory against the Nets and dropping them to 1-2 on the season. Miami held Brooklyn to 38 percent shooting from the floor, while also having seven less turnovers than the Nets and shooting 52 percent from the floor.
With the score 50-41 at half time, Kris Humphries already had a double- double, He would finished with only 11 points and 11 rebounds, while Deron Williams added 14, on an off night where he turned the ball over seven times. MarShon Brooks led the Nets bench with 12 points, as no other Net scored over double digits against the Heat, who got 42 points combined from LeBron and Dwayne Wade. Rashard Lewis chipped in 13 points off the bench.
The Nets look to rebound Friday when they head to Orlando to face the Magic, as they hope Gerald Wallace might be closer to action by then, and the Heat head to Atlanta to face the Hawks and continue their four game winning streak.
