The Nets have had a season to forget 30 games under .500 and way out of the playoff picture, they have been eliminated, but they have won 2 in a row. Not only that, but the 2 wins have come against the solid teams of the Pacers and the Cavs.
However, both those games were at home and can they keep their modest streak alive on the road?
The Heat have won 3 of their last 4 games and that began with a big-time home blowout win over the Cavs. Miami sits in the 4th position in the East only ? game back of the Celtics.
In their last games the Heat beat the Orlando Magic 108-97 and the Nets beat the Indiana Pacers 120-110.
While the Nets only rank 127th in the league in scoring they dropped 120 points in their last game to a Pacers’ squad that has one of the better defenses in the league. In that game Brooklyn shot a legit 54.5% from the floor and they outscored Indiana by 18 points in the 4th quarter.
The Nets have been solid contributions as of late from bench players and 10-day contract player Sean Kilpatrick has averaged 9.4 ppg since joining the team and went for 14 in the Pacers win.
C Brook Lopez went for a team-high 23 points in the game and if their guards play well like they did in the game the Nets may have a chance.
The Nets are only 7-27 on the road this season and they have lost their last 5 games away from Brooklyn.
The Heat have taken 2 of 3 games from the Nets this season, but the losses by Brooklyn were close ones and their one win was at Miami.
The Heat recently beat the Cavaliers, but they were also recently thumped by the Spurs. However, that game was on the road and Miami has won their last 2 games in their house.
The Heat rank a solid 4th in the league in opponents’ points allowed and they have had to play good D to win since leading scorer Chris Bosh is still on the sidelines with a blood clot.
Miami only ranks 23rd in the league in points per game.
One key match up tonight is at the C position with Lopez facing off with Miami’s Hassan Whiteside, who is coming off a 26-point, 12-board, and 5-block game in the last game against the Magic.
For the Nets to win their 3rd in a row they have to play solid perimeter D against Dwyane Wade and Goran Dragic, who are combining to average nearly 33 points per game.
The Heat are 24-13 at home this season.
