Nets Go Cold, Fall to Heat

Thursday night's game at the Meadowlands was never pretty, but it was tight for the first two and a half quarters. With the game tied at 53, the Heat went on a 13-3 run to take control late in the third. The Nets closed to within four early in the fourth to within two with just over a minute to go in the game, but Shaquille O'Neal answered with a basket down low, Jason Kidd's three point attempt on the other end was several feet long, and the Heat sealed the game at the free throw line. Kidd finished just one point short of a triple-double, but he and Vince Carter combined to shoot just 7-of-28 from the field. As a team, the Nets assisted on 25 of their 31 field goals, but they shot just 39 percent.
