Wade's Three Keeps Nets From First Win

New, comments

The Nets came as close as they possibly could to getting their first win, but Dwyane Wade had their number once again, hitting a game-winning three with 1/10th of a second to go in Miami on Saturday. It was another low-scoring game that was close throughout, with Miami in the lead most of the night. But Sean Williams helped the Nets move ahead midway through the fourth. After Williams put them up three in the final minute, Quentin Richardson tied the game with a three off the glass with 25 seconds to go. Brook Lopez put the Nets ahead with a tip-in with 4.1 on the clock, but Wade answered with the game-winner on the other end. The Nets had five players in double-figures, led by Lopez and Trenton Hassell with 17 points apiece. They held the Heat to 39 percent shooting, but allowed 15 offensive boards. Udonis Haslem led all scorers with 28 points, while Wade added 22 points, eight rebounds, six assists, six steals and two blocks.
