The Miami Heat had the easiest series among all the teams in the first round of the NBA playoffs. Proof of that is their 4-0 sweep of the Charlotte Bobcats. Next on their path are the experience-laden Brooklyn Nets, which had to go the distance before outlasting the Toronto Raptors.
The Nets amazingly swept their head-to-head meeting against the Heat in the regular season. Three of those were one-point wins with the other one a 104-95 double-overtime victory.
However, good things come to an end as Miami finally won against Brooklyn with a 107-86 trouncing in the first game of their best-of-seven NBA playoffs second round meeting. LeBron James led the way with 22 points as four others scored in double digits for the Heat.
In the first round, Joe Johnson emerged as the scoring leader, averaging nearly 22 points a game in the series against Toronto. Deron Williams complements his 16.9 ppg playoff average with team highs 5.6 apg and 1.4 spg.
James, on the other hand, leads Miami this postseason in points (30.0), rebounds (8.0), assists (6.0), and steals (2.3). The other two from the “Big Three” are also averaging in double figures.
Will the Nets continue their dominance of Miami? Or will the Heat have it easy the same way they had during the first round?
