2012 NBA Season Matchup:New Jersey Nets vs. Miami HeatMarch 06, 2012 by Marc Jerbs

On Tuesday, the New Jersey Nets travel to Florida as they play on the road against the Miami Heat. Game time is set at 7:30PM ET and will be played at the AmericanAirlines Arena.

The New Jersey Nets has an eight-game losing streak against the Miami Heat since 2009. The Nets average 86.3 points on 37.7 percent field goal shooting from the losses against the Heat.

Deron Williams and his Nets are coming off a thrilling 104-101 win over the Charlotte Bobcats last Sunday. Williams led the Nets with a 57-point performance and sunk all his 21 free throw attempts. However, he could not do it alone if they want to beat the Miami Heat on their homecourt.

The Miami Heat returns to Florida after a grueling 3-game West road trip. They were able to beat the Blazers but suffered two-consecutive losses against the Jazz and Lakers. Both Lebron and Wade did all they carry the Heat but their efforts was enough. Without Chris Bosh in the middle, they suffered against the big bodied frontline of the Jazz and Lakers.

Chris Bosh is set to play against the New Jersey Nets after leaving the team due to a death in his family. Expect Bosh to bring his intensity and inside presence which will help the Heat to stop their two-game losing streak.

The sportsbook handicappers have installed the Miami Heat as the odds on favorite to beat the New Jersey Nets on Tuesday night. Expect Deron Williams to give it all and hope his intensity will rub on his teammates.
