Miami is looking to stay at the top of the Southeast standings, and the Nets won't likely give them too much to worry about as they play their second game in a 6-game road stretch. The Nets tried to revamp their roster in the off-season to improve on a first round playoff exit, but it hasn't done any good, and actually has hurt them. At the end of December they lost 7 of 9, but did get a huge win over the Thunder to start the new year. With Williams back they may start to build a bit of rhythm around one another, and this game against the Heat will help decide if they have the ability to turn this season around.

Miami is the defending champion for two years running now, and they went ahead and picked up some cheap additions that could make a difference for them this season, in Oden and Beasley. Brooklyn wants to improve their position dramatically over last season, and they are trying to do it by adding veterans, and a new coach. Unluckily for them, Williams will likely still be out for this game, and their coach, Jason Kidd, will be out as well, serving out the remainder of his suspension. Miami appears to be the team to beat in the East again, but this game might give us an idea of how much more work the Nets need to do to be in the conversation with them.
