The Brooklyn Nets got off to a terrible start this year, but with only a handful of games left in the regular season, they’re not a team anyone wants to draw in the playoffs.
Jason Kidd’s resurgent Nets just captured their fourth win of the season against the Miami Heat, making them the first team to sweep LeBron James in a four game season series in his career. Tonight’s game ended with a highlight involving LeBron, but not one that he’ll want to see very often. James, who scored 29 on the night against Brooklyn, skied for a big dunk that would give the Heat an 89-88 lead with two seconds remaining on the clock, when he was met by rookie center Mason Plumlee, who rejected the dunk at the rim.
Some believe that Plumlee fouled James on the play, but it seems to be clean based on replays.
The Nets are 33-13 since New Year’s Day, and are in fifth place in the Eastern Conference.
