How to Net the Win: Brooklyn Nets at Miami Heat, 3-31-18
The Nets will travel to South Beach tonight in search of a third win in a row vs the Heat to win the season series for the first time since 2013-2014.
Why the Brooklyn Nets Will Win:
Pushing the Pace
If the Brooklyn Nets hope to have a shot at winning this game, they absolutely have to do what they’ve done all year; push the pace. While the Nets have been one of the fastest teams in the NBA (7th place in pace), the Heat have been one of the slowest (27th), and the Nets need to use this to their advantage.
Part of the reason that the Heat has been such an elite defensive team (8th in defensive rating this year), is because they slow the game down to a crawl and suffocate their opponents into making mistakes.
