|Gerald Wallace missed last night's game due to the injury he suffered in the Nets' win against Toronto. He was sorely missed against the Heat.|
Miami won the game how you thought they would; incredible ball-handling (25 assists to Brooklyn's 12), knockdown three-point shooting (10-24 to the Nets' 3-21), and by pesky defense and stellar forcing-of-turnovers (forcing 19 to be committed by the Nets while only committing 12 themselves). Positives to note: Tornike (Toko) Shengalia finally made his Nets regular season debut (two points and two turnovers in 12 minutes), Kris Humphries finally showed up (11 points and 11 rebounds), MarShon Brooks scored 12 points off the bench, and Brook Lopez even grabbed seven rebounds in only 21 minutes.
The Nets travel upstate and play the Magic in Orlando at Amway Arena on Friday night, hoping to return to .500.
