Game 70 - Nets vs. Heat - Monday, March 22, 7:30

The Nets are healthy, young and committed to getting to 10.  But as the Raptors game showed, they are prone to mental mistakes, turnovers and horrid defense upfront.  The Heat, on the other hand, are driving towards the playoffs and can't afford to lose, particularly to a team 7-62.  They're also playing great defense, winning against the Bobcats Saturday despite shooting 35.9%. They'll be healthy as well.  Jermaine O'Neal will be back after missing the Charlotte game with a sprained ankle.  It's not that the Heat have blown out the Nets this season.  Miami won the first game  81-80 Nov. 14 on Dwyane Wade's buzzer beater, then took the second 87-84 Feb. 17. The Heat shot 39.2% in combined in the two games, but better than the Nets' 39.0%.

Meanwhile, Al Iannazzone reports that Nets veterans Devin Harris, Keyon Dooling and Tony Battie "spoke during a players’ meeting last week about doing whatever it takes to win three more games".
