Game Preview: Heat take on Nets in Brooklyn

New, comments

Miami looks to stop their three-game skid with a win at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn tonight at 7:30pm.

The Story:

The Miami Heat have dropped three games back-to-back, and desperately need to a win tonight against the Brooklyn Nets (who have also been struggling). The Heat have been without star shooting guard Dwyane Wade for the last two games as he's been nursing a sore hamstring, and his absence is evident. It's unknown whether or not D-Wade will dress tonight, but with the way the Heat have been playing without him, and the fact that he made the road trip leaves me inclined to believe he will in fact suit up for tip-off.

Game Fact:

Last season Brooklyn swept the regular season series 4-0 against Miami.
