Different Story, Same Result - Nets Go Down 2-0

On Sunday, the Nets couldn't stop the Heat shooters, allowing 116 points on 59% shooting. In Game 2 on Tuesday, they were able to slow down the Miami offense, but they could not get anything going themselves. Vince Carter, Jason Kidd and Richard Jefferson combined to shoot just 15-40 from the field, and the Nets shot just 36% overall. Nenad Krstic scored 27 points on 8 of 13 from the field, but the rest of the New Jersey frontcourt (Brian Scalabrine, Jason Collins and Clifford Robinson) scored just 6 points while shooting 2 of 15. Alonzo Mourning led the Heat with 21 points and Dwyane Wade finished with 17 points, 10 assists and 6 rebounds. The Nets have now lost the first two games on the road in their second straight playoff series. In last year's Eastern Conference Semifinals, they came back to take a 3-2 lead before falling to the Pistons in 7 games.
