Wade Burns Nets Again

New, comments

The Nets played overtime for the second straight night, but it was Dwyane Wade, not Vince Carter, who provided the late-game heroics Saturday night in Miami. The Nets' held the Heat to just 36 percent shooting in the first half, led by as many as 15 and were up eight at halftime. Both teams shot poorly in the third quarter, but the Heat eventually took the lead early in the fourth. The final period went back and forth, Keyon Dooling tied it with a bank shot with 8.4 seconds to go in regulation, and Wade missed a potential game-winning jumper on the other end. The Nets made just one of their first six shots in the extra period while Wade took over on the other end. The Nets did cut a seven-point Heat lead down to two and had the ball down three with eight seconds to go, but Carter's contested three fell short. Wade had just six points on 1-8 shooting in the first half, but led all scorers with 29 points for the game, adding eight rebounds, six assists, three steals and four blocks. Dooling led five Nets in double figures with 23 points and seven assists. Carter finished with 20 points, nine boards and six assists, but shot just 5-21 from the field. As a team, the Nets shot just 40 percent.
