The NBA fates can be cruel. After looking beat in their loss to the Magic, the Nets head down the Florida peninsula to Miami Saturday to face the Heat, who are playing well at 6-2 and have had two days rest. Three Nets--Brook Lopez, Rafer Alston and Trenton Hassell--have averaged 40 minutes a game over the last week (four games) while rookie Terrence Williams has put in 34 a game off the bench.
