New Jersey will travel south down the eastern seaboard for their game versus The Miami Heat at American Airline Arena tonight at 7:30ET. The Heat face the unusual circumstance of losing three in a row. At Utah on Friday night, LeBron James did, what LeBron James does far too often by passing up taking the last shot of a 99-98 loss to the Jazz. Michael Jordan has got to be shaking his head.
Then, on Sunday in a nationally televised showdown with the Los Angeles Lakers, Kobe Bryant did what Kobe Bryant always does by dominating James and the Heat in a 93-83 drubbing in Hollywood. The Heat should get a lift with the return of Chris Bosh who missed the two losses due to the death of his grandmother. That, along with some good old home cooking, should aid Miami who has been victorious in ten straight games played on South Beach. Check the Basketball Odds for New Jersey Nets vs. Miami Heat game.
