The Nets overcame an abysmal defensive 3rd quarter and rallied in the fourth to beat the home team 102-100 in front of the 14,00 fans that attended.
Deron Williams scored 20 points and added 11 assist, but the biggest story of the night for the Nets came from the bench. Kris Humphries scored 17 points and grabbed 8 rebounds and c.J. Watson scored 14 points off the pine for the Nets. With the score tied at 87 with 5:08 remaining, Williams hit a three pointer to put the Nets up for good. The nets are trying to keep pace with the New York Knicks for the Atlantic Divions, where they currently sit 2 games behind. Thhe Nets now travel to Portland to take on the Trail Blazers on Wednesday.
Miami, FL- Heat 109, Bobcats 77 This is beginning to sound like the same song every night. The Miami Heat got off to a slow start, playing without Dwayne Wade who sat out with a bruised knee, and dominated the second half to cruise past the Charloette Bobcats 109-77. This is Miami’s 26th consecutive win.
The Bionic Man himself, LeBron James put on another clinic with 32 points 10 assist and 8 rebounds to lead all scorers. Though the Bobcats battled early it never seemed as if they had a chance even when they lead 19-8 early in the first quarter. Miami visits the Orlando Magic tonight to shoot for 27 in a row. Its apparent that Dwayne Wade will be a game time decision.
