Out of the frying pan into the fire? After losing to the Boston Celtics, the Nets next face the Miami Heat. Admittedly, they are not the Miami Heat of mid-season, rolling over everyone. This Miami Heat has been just a bit human in the last two weeks, playing a bit above .500 with real road woes. Still, of course, they feature two of the game's top five, maybe top three, players in LeBron James and Dwyane Wade.

Against the Knicks on Sunday, the Heat showed their mettle late, outscoring New York, 18-3, over the last eight minutes, the lone opponents points coming on a harmless three by Carmelo Anthony. James had 29 points and 10 rebounds, while Wade added 28 points, nine rebounds and four assists. Chris Bosh had one of his best games as well, with 16 and 14.

For the Nets, it's doubtful that Gerald Wallace will play again, although he reportedly wants to. The Nets don't want another player going into the off-season in rehab mode, but they also don't want to harm him when there's no real reason to. Gerald Green, 38 points in the last two games, is likely to come off the bench again. Avery Johnson likes him in the sixth man role.
