Nets Blow Another Chance at a Winning Streak

The situation seemed to be just right for the Nets to put together their first winning streak of the season Wednesday night at the Izod Center. Dwyane Wade, who has killed them for the last several years, left the game late in the first quarter with a strained left calf. After trading leads with the Heat for most of the night, the Nets led by six with four minutes left in the game. But they then missed their next 10 shots as the Heat went on a 13-2 run to pull out the win. Brook Lopez led all scorers with 26 points and added 10 rebounds, Devin Harris added 18 points, and Kris Humphries grabbed 12 boards. But the Nets shot just 35 percent from the field and 1-15 from 3-point range. Michael Beasley and Quentin Richardson combined for 39 points and 25 rebounds for Miami.
