Game 59 - Heat @ Nets - Thursday, March 3, 7:30

The Heat comes into Continental Airlines Arena Thursday with 4 days of rest and the best record in the Eastern Conference, having won 11 of their last 14 games. Shaquille O'Neal has missed the last three games with a sprained knee, but will likely return for Thursday's meeting with the Nets. Also returning to the Meadowlands will be Alonzo Mourning, who signed a contract with Miami on Tuesday after he was bought out by Toronto. Dwyane Wade is averaging 28.0 points, 8.7 assists and 2.7 steals in his last 6 games for the Heat. The Nets have won 4 of their last 5 games at home.
