MIAMI (AP) Dwyane Wade found out before the game he would be without his point guard, then was worried in the first quarter about the pain shooting through his left hand and wrist.
Neither situation slowed him down – and the Brooklyn Nets never do.
Wade scored 30 points on 14-for-19 shooting, Hassan Whiteside added a career-high 27 points off the bench and the Miami Heat clamped down defensively in the second half to beat the Nets 110-99 on Monday night.
“We all had to breathe collectively today, without our point guard, without somebody who puts pressure around the rim and attacks,” said Wade, who jammed his wrist early but had no ill effects the rest of the way. “I took it upon myself to be that one to attack tonight.”
That’s usually the case when he faces the Nets. In his last seven games against Brooklyn, Wade is averaging 27.1 points. He’s never scored fewer than 20 against Brooklyn in a regular-season game; the then-New Jersey Nets held him to 13 in what was a 30-point Heat win in March 2012, a game Wade left early with an injury.
“Dwyane Wade. He’s like wine,” Nets interim coach Tony Brown said. “He gets better with age. He was great, he attacked us all night.”
Josh Richardson scored 16 points, starting at point guard in place of the ill Goran Dragic, and Justise Winslow added 13 for Miami. The Heat allowed Brooklyn to shoot 61 percent in the first half, then held the Nets to 46 percent after intermission to ensure that Joe Johnson’s first game against his former team would be a winning one.
