Nets Fall to Heat in Opener

The Nets couldn't stop a balanced scoring attack from the Heat, as Miami won the opener in a blowout, 100-77. Shaquille O'Neal was in foul trouble most of the game and only played 21 minutes, but Dwyane Wade led all scorers with 21 points, and 5 other Miami players scored in double-figures. Richard Jefferson led the Nets with 19 points and 5 assists, and Zoran Planinic came off the bench for 11.
