Nets Vs. Heat Recap: Miami Back On Winning Track, Cruises To 30-Point Win Over New Jersey

After losing two straight games out West, the Miami Heat returned home on Tuesday night to face the lowly New Jersey Nets at American Airlines Arena. The Miami quickly asserted themselves, never letting New Jersey have a chance and jumping out to a 27-point lead after 24 minutes. They would go on to win by 30, closing out the Nets 108-78.

Chris Bosh returned after being away for a death in the family, and the power forward didn't miss a beat, hitting nine of 14 attempts and scoring 20 points in just 24 minutes on the floor. The Heat spread the wealth around, putting six players in double figures and resting the big three with the huge halftime lead. The were absolutely scorching from the floor, shooting 58 percent from the field and 59 percent from behind the arc.

The only concern for Miami was the status of Dwyane Wade, who tweaked his ankle in the second quarter and did not return. Wade said it was no big deal after the game and that he shouldn't miss any time. The Heat now head up to Atlanta on Wednesday night for a division matchup with the Hawks.
