The Miami Heat are looking for their second consecutive win on the road and third win of the season over the New Jersey Nets.

The Miami Heat insulated their flank from criticism of their road troubles with a Sunday win over the Knicks in New York. On Monday, they cross the Hudson for a bout with the New Jersey Nets as they head into the final stretch of the regular season.

The last time the Nets beat the Heat was 2009. Miami has won their last dozen games over New Jersey. Nothing would delight their critics and send the faithful scurrying to the medicine cabinet for something to calm the nerves like a loss to the Nets, not with the playoffs just over the horizon.

LeBron James scored 29 points in the win over the Knicks. He has 53 points in two wins over the Nets this season. Dwayne Wade had 28 points in the win, but only saw action once against the Nets this season.

The game starts at 7:30 p.m. Eastern at the Prudential Center in Newark, NJ. Viewers can catch the game on Sun Sports network.
