Nets Beat Heat in Another Close One

New, comments

The Nets will return home with a 2-0 preseason record after beating the Heat 94-92 in London on Sunday. With Trenton Hassell, Yi Jianlian and Brook Lopez starting, the Nets were active defensively and hot offensively early on, leading 30-11 late in the first quarter. The Heat came back though, and the game was close throughout the second half. Miami led by four with just over four minutes to go when the Nets took control on a 12-4 run that included two buckets from Yi. They finished the game off on the free throw line. Vince Carter played and led the Nets with 19 points, Yi finished with 17 and Devin Harris added 14. Lopez struggled at times, but grabbed a game-high 13 boards--including 7 on the offensive glass--and tied for a game high with three blocks.
