The Nets have played better over the last couple of weeks, but they're still not in the Heat's league. That was proven once again Tuesday night in Miami, as the Heat drilled the Nets, 108-78.

The Nets actually led 7-2 and 11-10 early, but it didn't take long for the Heat to seize control. They led by 13 after the first quarter, by 27 at the half, by 32 at the end of the third, and by as many as 40 in the fourth.

The Heat shot 58 percent from the field and 10-for-17 from three-point range. They were led by LeBron James, who finished with 21 points, nine rebounds and six assists. Deron Williams led the Nets with 16 points and four assists, even though he didn't play the final 15 minutes of the game. Marshon Brooks and Johan Petro also scored in double figures.
