MIAMI (AP) Joe Harris scored a career-high 21 points, Rondae Hollis-Jefferson added 18 and the Brooklyn Nets simply embarrassed the Miami Heat 111-87 on Friday night.
Caris LeVert and Jarrett Allen each had 12 for the Nets, who were actually down 18-8 early - then outscored Miami 85-37 over the next 28 minutes. LeVert added a career-best 11 assists.
It matched the biggest win by the Nets over the Heat ever, going along with the 24-point victory by New Jersey on Dec. 1, 1989, which was early in the second season in Miami franchise history.
Josh Richardson scored 19 points and Hassan Whiteside added 17 for Miami. The Heat shot 3 for 26 from 3-point range, and 34 percent from the field overall.
