Good News: Brooklyn Nets get chance for redemption; Bad News: It's against Miami Heat

Mike Ehrmann

Back in November 2010, when the newly formed Miami Heat were having chemistry problems, they lost a 22-point lead to the Jazz, with their point guard Deron Williams feeding power forward Paul Milsap. D-Will hopes he can do it again and erase the memory of the Nets own blown lead.

The Nets flew to Miami Tuesday for a two-game, four-day road trip that begins with a Wednesday night contest with the defending champion Heat. It will be a chance for the team to get away from the problems still associated with Hurricane Sandy ... and their dismal 33-point swing and loss Monday night. Now, they face a surging Heat.

After two lackadaisical games vs. the Knicks and Nuggets, particularly on defense, the Heat returned to form Tuesday with a 25-point win over the increasingly woeful Suns. After the Heat (3-1) let the Knicks own the perimeter in Game 2 and the Nuggets own the paint in Game 3, they put the clamps on Phoenix in Game 4. The Suns shot under 40 percent for the game and were out-rebounded by Heat, 49-38. Meanwhile, Miami had an extraordinary shooting night, going 54.7 percent from the floor and 57.7 percent from three-point range.

LeBron James had 23 points and 11 rebounds Monday while Ray Allen became the 24th player in NBA history to eclipse the 23,000-point mark.

Next word on Gerald Wallace and Josh Childress status will come at shootaround in Miami Wednesday morning.

Fore the Nets, here's a consolation: two years ago, on November 9, the Heat with their new Big Three had a 22-point lead against the Jazz (starring Deron Williams, Paul Millsap and Andrei Kirilenko) but lost in overtime. That was the game that Millsap had 46 points and D-Will had 14 assists. (Thanks to ELone for this.)
