Quantcast

Coming off Kevin Garnett's heroics against Golden State on Wednesday the Brooklyn Nets got another big win at home tonight. This time it was against the defending World Champion Miami Heat.

Wearing their nickname themed jerseys KG and The Truth combined for 35 points and 15 rebounds on 12-25 shooting in the victory.

There even was almost a vintage Paul Pierce moment at the end of regulation when his step back 3 to win it right in LeBron's grill fell just in and out.

Garnett finally seems to be finding his footing with Brooklyn as evidenced by this game and the win in Golden State.

In fact, KG did have his own vintage moment in this game hitting a signature 20 foot jumper to put the Nets up 102-93 in the second overtime putting the game away.

It was far from a two person effort, however. Joe Johnson started out red hot scoring 22 in the first quarter and finishing with 32 on 14-25 shooting.

Shaun Livingston, a player who I was a big proponent of the Celtics signing for the last few years, had a great game as well.

Livingston clocked in with 19 pts. 11 boards and 5 assists.

The Nets hope to keep their winning ways going tomorrow night versus a much improved Raptor team led by Demar Derozan in Toronto.

The Heat, playing without Mario Chalmers and Dwyane Wade, look to regroup after having lost two straight (New York on Thursday) and will have plenty of time to do so.

They do not play again until Wednesday at Washington.
