The Miami Heat and the Brooklyn Nets meet for the second consecutive game tonight in a battle featuring the Big 3 of Kevin Durant, James Harden, and Kyrie Irving going against Bam Adebayo, who is coming off a career-high 41 points, and a shorthanded Heat team once again.

Coach Erik Spoelstra has replaced Maurice Harkless, who left Saturday’s game with a thigh injury, with second-year forward KZ Okpala, who had some nice minutes off the bench in Brooklyn doing a little bit of everything.
