Heat Complete the Sweep

The Nets season ended on Sunday the same way it began back on November 3rd, with a loss to the Heat at the Meadowlands. Behind 14 first quarter points from Dwyane Wade, Miami led by 11 points after one. The Nets closed the gap, trailed by 1 at the half, and took a brief lead midway through the third period. A 9-0 run helped the Heat take back control of the game, and after a Jason Kidd 3 pointer got the Nets to within 3 with 8 minutes left to go in the fourth, Wade led the visitors on an 8-2 run to put the game out of reach. Wade finished with 34 points and 9 assists, shooting 13 of 20 from the field. Eddie Jones shot 5 of 7 from downtown, finishind with 21 points. The Nets held Shaquille O'Neal scoreless in the first half, but the Heat went to him early and often in the second, and he finished with 17 points and 8 rebounds. Jason Kidd scored 25 points to lead the Nets, who shot just 40% from the field.
