Heat at Nets

Tonight the Heat are visiting the Brooklyn Nets.  The Heat had a loss against the Celtics on Sunday in double overtime.  LeBron James drained the game tying shot in regulation, but the Heat still lost.  James is averaging 26.6 points, 7.1 assists, and 8.3 rebounds.  He reached 20,000 points and 5,000 assists in his career this season.  He was more proud of reaching the record of 5,000 assists because he likes getting his team involved.  I agree with him because it makes the Heat a better team; opposing teams don't know who is going to shoot because they are all offensive threats.  Dwayne Wade averages 20.7 points and 4.6 assists.  He and James have better communication than before, and this is making the Heat better.  Chris Bosh has 17.2 points, 7.5 boards, and 1.4 blocks per game.  However, for the Nets, ever since moving to Brooklyn, they have been much better.  Deron Williams averages 17.1 points and 7.8 assists a game.  He is having a great season, another cause of a great season for the Nets.  Joe Johnson went to Brooklyn from Atlanta, and he is averaging 17.1 points.  The only disadvantage of having Joe Johnson is that he is older.  He, too, is a great player.  Brook Lopez has 18.6 points, 7.3 boards, and 2.2 rejections per game.  With Rajon Rondo out, this opens the door for Deron Williams or Brook Lopez to make it on the All-Star team.  I predict that the Heat will win because after losing to the Celtics, they will try harder than ever to win.
