Nets look to shake off back-to-back losses, face Heat next

The new-look Brooklyn Nets showcased enough offense in Cleveland. They struggled on the other end, however, resulting in a lost two-game trip.

The Nets will not have much time, but they hope to correct some of their defensive issues Saturday night when they host the shorthanded Miami Heat.

Brooklyn returns home after allowing 272 points in two straight losses to the Cavaliers. Of those points, 134 came in the paint, which according to ESPN Stats and Info is its most points allowed in the paint in a two-game span in the last 25 seasons. The Nets absorbed a 147-135 double-overtime loss Wednesday when they got 96 points from Kevin Durant, Kyrie Irving and James Harden, and then lost control in the third quarter of a 125-113 loss Friday.
