Two days after needing Ray Allen's late 4-point play for a narrow win over Denver, Miami's victory...
The Brooklyn Nets (1-1) will make a trip to Florida to face the Miami Heat (3-1) for an Eastern Conference showdown. However, it will be a tall task for the Nets to leave South Beach with a win as Miami is undefeated at home early in the season. Not to mention the Nets have lost six in a row in Miami.
Miami is coming off a 124-99 win over Phoenix while Brooklyn is coming off...
