Tonight, the Nets head to the American Airlines Arena to take on the two-time defending champion Miami Heat. Brooklyn will look to earn a regular season sweep of Miami after winning the previous three matchups this season.

Miami is the only legitimate playoff contender left on the Nets' remaining schedule, so tonight could be a tune-up game for both teams before the postseason gets started.

Before the 2013-14 NBA season began, the Heat had won the last 13 consecutive matchups between these two teams. But with a win tonight, Brooklyn would earn a four-game season sweep against Miami for the first time since the 2002-03 season.

Even right after defeating the Orlando Magic Monday night, the Nets were already looking forward to their matchup with the top-seed in the Eastern Conference, the Miami Heat.

On Saturday night, the Nets were defeated by the Miami Heat by a final score of 102-89.

The Skinny: Neither team scored a bucket for nearly two minutes to start the game, but an 11-0 Nets run, in which they dominated on both ends of the floor, helped Brooklyn establish the early lead. The Nets displayed great ball movement, as they had eight assists ? five by Deron Williams ? on 11 first-quarter field goals, and led by eight after one. LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh combined for just five points in the quarter for the Heat.

After a night off against the Magic, Jerry Stackhouse came out with a hot hand to start the second quarter, helping the Nets increase their lead to 14. James and Wade began heating up, which helped the Heat close the Nets? lead to five. Joe Johnson responded with seven straight Nets? points to put Brooklyn back up 10, and the Nets closed out the half with a nine-point lead. Brooklyn?s frontline of Gerald Wallace, Kris Humphries and Andray Blatche combined for 30 points and 15 rebounds in the first half.
