View Full Version : If they should meet, can the Nets beat Miami?

It's been said in the past that, a team that can beat Miami needs to be physical, have a few players to throw at LBJ and have a superior advantage at PG & C. All the talk of NYK,CHI and IND battling the heat in the ECF but what if the Nets beat them before they reach it? All though they( Nets) didnt show very well vs Miami in the regular season, they do have a few things going for them.....

- Said advantage at PG with D Will( playing much better lately)
- A couple of Guys to throw at LBJ
- Can be physical and have a good shot to dominate on the boards
- Miami has NOBODY on their team that can defend B Lopez or Blatche for that matter
- D Wade cant( or not easily) post up vs the nets SG or wing players the way he bullies some other teams SGs( say what you want about JJ, he's not a scrub by anymeans and he is one of the only SG that has the size to defend Wade)

Im sure there are other "keys" that I didnt mention but those are the highlights. Now me on the other hand, I DONT BELIEVE that that is the way to beat Miami. I think the KNICKS have the perfect ways to beat Miami

- Dont turn the ball over which fuels buckets for Miami in transition( #1 in fewest turnovers per game)
- MAKE A TON OF THREES( #1 in 3s made & atts, #5 in %)
- Have atleast 1 player that can get HIS OWN points whenever( of course I mean Melo)
( These are all the things DALLAS did to beat Miami, and the Knicks are built in the same excact image)


BUT BACK TO THE TOPIC, I think fans are overlooking the NETS. If they can get out of the first round -
WOULD THE NETS HAVE A CHANCE VS MIAMI??? If you can, please put more than yes or NO. Explain

i'd give them about a 10% chance.

- the heat are too good at home and have home court advantage
- they have the 2 best players in the series on their team
- they play elite defense
- they make you pay for doubles on wade/lebron by spreading the floor and knocking down the 3
- the heat are better then last year when they won it all by adding birdman, allen and lewis, plus wade is healthier going into the playoffs

All GREAT points. I think the Nets may turn the ball over a little to much to beat Miami 4 times, if they take care of the ball I think that 10 % goes up

I have a hard time seeing how a healthy Heat team does not repeat.

If Lebron gets injured or Bosh and Wade get injured then that changes everything. I don't think the Nets are in the same league as the Heat.

04-16-2013, 12:31 PM
I think the West can give the Heat problems,

but Atlanta, Brooklyn, Indiana & New York dont have enough to beat them.

I dont think Chicago or Boston really does either, but i give them the best shot at doing so in a 4 game series.

coming from a nets fan... id say i have to agree with the 10%
just because of coaching alone.
pjs line ups are to counter what the other team plays instead of playing to our strengths.
after half time it seems he doesnt make the right adjustments which concludes our 3rd quarter deficiencies.

we would have to be playing flawless basketball which would be damn near impossible having the heat 1 of top defenses and the nets 1 of the highest turn over prone teams

Sure they stand a chance, but Miami's defense is too good, Brooklyn just doesn't have the perimeter defense to stop both Bron/Wade drives and close on the shooters.

They play 10 series, Brooklyn wins 1 I would guess.

If Brooklyn played Miami they'd be lucky to pull 1 win imo.
They have the PG/C combo but have no one to check Wade/LeBron/Bosh, that's a huge problem. Especially LeBron.

It would take Deron/Joe J being lights out for them to have a chance imo.
That's a series Brooklyn would want to avoid at all cost. They were swept by Miami this regular season and by a convincing margin. I don't see how they will suddenly turn it on against them.

Miami is also a lot better since the beginning of the season... so your point is invalid.
Nets would likely get swept or maybe get 1 win, that's about it.
They simply don't have the perimeter players to deal with LeBron/Wade/Bosh.

You look at Indy and they have Hibbert/West/George to throw at those 3.
Chicago has Deng/Butler/Noah and a great defensive system.
Knicks have Tyson/Martin and a plethora of 3 pt shooters to off set their game.
Nets have a great Center with no help at the forward positions. They don't match up against Miami very well at all. You'd need Crash and Hump to really be defensive stoppers to have a chance and they simply aren't. Having the advantage at the 1-5 is pointless if your being outmatched by their big 3.

I think you made some good points, and I have thought the same things about the nets. They just don't quite have enough to actually compete with the heat though. I think they have a small chance, but I definitely think the heat would still win and wouldn't predict a game 7. To me the knicks and their 3 point shooting is the most deadly threat in the east for the heat. Heat still favored by far to me in the east though.

its not invalid as you cannot prove my statement wrong, Bulls and Pacers might have those people that can "stop" lebron but they dont have the offense to get it done. And putting your faith in Kenyon Martin and Tyson Chandler both old and hurt right now isnt something to look foward to. And both arent going to guard Lebron and Wade 1 on 1.

Im actually with you a little bit DMF. I think the Nets are an underrated defensive team that is now hitting their stride. I dont think they can beat Miami 4 times only because of turnovers and 3 pt shooting. If they can take care of the ball and DWILL,JJ,Watson,Bogans,Mirza and stack can make threes to go along with the inside game, I think they can make a series out of it. It may take DWill playing out of his mind but thats what the playoffs are all about. I really do wish the Nets good luck

It's invalid because your claim implies Miami hasn't gotten better since the beginning of the season when they swept you. Are you suggesting Nets new found play is better than what Miami has done to end the season? If so you're simply wrong.

I see you are trying to make this a NY thing again, let it go.
All I know from this season is of all the teams this regular season New York, Chicago and Indy/Boston pose the best threat to get a few wins against Miami. Brooklyn has done nothing to show they can make this an interesting series.

Dude, calm down, for real.

I didn't say the Nets can beat MIA in a series. I said Crash can make Lebron's life a little more difficult and Miami doesn't have anyone to stop Brook's offense.

The Nets bench IMO is too weak to actually win the series. BUT I think they have a better chance than BOS would.

Rockice_8
04-16-2013, 01:25 PM
I'd say it goes 6 at best probably. LBJ is just too much for teams to handle. The X factor is actually JJ who if he can get hot and keep the scoring going could really make it a series. Actually Wade is the guy that kills the Nets the most. For some reason he becomes Reggie Miller from the outside when he sees the Nets.

I think if JJ can play close to Wade's level they will make it a series. I think Lopez will have his way on the inside and LBJ will have his way as well.

The Nets need the complete team effort to win while the Heat can get by on 3 guys. If they get a team effort the Nets can't hang. It's not really a bashing of the Nets though it's just that MIA is an all time great team possibly.

Nets are the 3rd best team in the East IMO so if they can't do it then only the Knicks have a shot and even they are gonna some luck to beat the Heat.

Brooklyn doesn't match up well at all against Miami. If you had a competent SF/PF I would agree with you but you don't. Again, what good does it do for you that Brooklyn has Miami beat at the PG/C position but is severely at a disadvantage against their Big 3 who play SG/SF/PF?

I don't expect you to grasp that concept. Keep believing Brooklyn will take the HEAT to 7 games.

No you just have to stop them from running. The Knicks don't run at all and have had success. Don't turn the ball over and slow the game down limiting possessions and you got a chance. The Nets have an advantage in the post and on the glass. If they can keep Wade and LBJ out of the paint, rebound the ball on both ends, and limit turnovers they can win a few games. Just not enough to win the series though.

The Nets have the PG and Center to give Miami some fits, but they're so below average on the wings that it won't matter in the end. Joe Johnson is not a playoff performer and Gerald Wallace has been awful lately (and to be honest, hasn't been that good since he got traded from Portland). That said, this is sports and there's always a chance for anything to happen. But this is very unlikely.....

There are a sick team and lebron is the best player I've seen play since Jordan ( was very young when Jordan played) the X factor to me is jr smith and Kmart.

Still don't get why people are constantly saying the Celtics and Bulls have the best chances in the East to beat the Heat. This is a completely different/worse Celtics team from past years and I don't even think the Bulls without Rose are a top 5 team in the East.

Man Heat fans are cocky, but I can't even blame them. I'd honestly wouldn't give any team in the East over a 15% chance of beating them. Don't think the Pacers, Nets, or Knicks (can't wait for certain Knick fans to blast me) make it close.

i'd give them about a 10% chance.

- the heat are too good at home and have home court advantage
- they have the 2 best players in the series on their team
- they play elite defense
- they make you pay for doubles on wade/lebron by spreading the floor and knocking down the 3
- the heat are better then last year when they won it all by adding birdman, allen and lewis, plus wade is healthier going into the playoffs

10% might be too nice in this situation I didn't see anyone mention Miami's bench. They would propel over Brooklyn bench if any of Miami's stars gets hurt or has a let in the series

And I partially agree. Atlanta always asked JJ to create too much, where as he is better next to a creator. I think his playoff efficiency rises this year as well, but he isn't going to kill it or anything.

04-16-2013, 09:38 PM
It's been said in the past that, a team that can beat Miami needs to be physical, have a few players to throw at LBJ and have a superior advantage at PG & C. All the talk of NYK,CHI and IND battling the heat in the ECF but what if the Nets beat them before they reach it? All though they( Nets) didnt show very well vs Miami in the regular season, they do have a few things going for them.....

- Said advantage at PG with D Will( playing much better lately)
- A couple of Guys to throw at LBJ
- Can be physical and have a good shot to dominate on the boards
- Miami has NOBODY on their team that can defend B Lopez or Blatche for that matter
- D Wade cant( or not easily) post up vs the nets SG or wing players the way he bullies some other teams SGs( say what you want about JJ, he's not a scrub by anymeans and he is one of the only SG that has the size to defend Wade)

Im sure there are other "keys" that I didnt mention but those are the highlights. Now me on the other hand, I DONT BELIEVE that that is the way to beat Miami. I think the KNICKS have the perfect ways to beat Miami

- Dont turn the ball over which fuels buckets for Miami in transition( #1 in fewest turnovers per game)
- MAKE A TON OF THREES( #1 in 3s made & atts, #5 in %)
- Have atleast 1 player that can get HIS OWN points whenever( of course I mean Melo)
( These are all the things DALLAS did to beat Miami, and the Knicks are built in the same excact image)


BUT BACK TO THE TOPIC, I think fans are overlooking the NETS. If they can get out of the first round -
WOULD THE NETS HAVE A CHANCE VS MIAMI??? If you can, please put more than yes or NO. Explain

No chance, Lebron and Wade will walk all over this team. The nets need to prove and learn how to win in playoffs basketball before they can talk about beating Miami. Nets haven't made the playoffs in yearsssssssssss. Win a series FIRST.

Miami has been pretty dominate when we place Smith so I dont think he would have done much. Lebron would probably be guarding him and Smith cannot hit a shot outside 5 feet.

I never got the feeling Miami cant be beating i dont picture them as a dominant team. So yes Nets have a shot to beat Miami. It will boil down to how the game is called and who want it most. Will they call touch fouls, Flopping, players jumping in the defenders space and be rewarded a foul or will they allow Lebron to run over folks. If they call a clean game Either team can win. Miami dont have a clear cut advantage.

The only way the Nets beat the Heat is if they consistently and aggressively feed Lopez. He has to be the 1st option, he has to demand the ball, claim the low post and not get pushed out. If a series btwn Nets and Heat turns into D. Will & JJ vs Wade and LBJ then Heat win easy, 4 to 1 if not a sweep...

Yeah that team two years ago would not had made the playoffs wthout Rose. Now you add a healthy Boozer, Noah, and a defensive stopper in Butler and it is a good series. Boston in 2008 was better than they were in 2010 and yet in 2008 it took 7 games to beat the CAvs who was much worse that year than in 2010 and only took 6 games to beat Cleveland in 2010 with prime Lebron and also a much better squad as they had Shaq and company on the team.

Well last time he guarded Durant for a series Durant averaged 31 ppg on 55% FG. Melo averaged what Lebron did.
Now that Melo has gotten more training for the playoffs I don't see Lebron guarding him especially after just scoring 50 on the Heat a few weeks back.

1. Heat fans are UBER Defensive. Heaven forbid ANYONE suggest that they are in any way vulnerable to defeat.

2. The regular season means nothing to heat fans unless it proves their point that they dominated you all year.

3. Heat fans are just so ridiculously cocky that everyone roots against their team

4. All Heat players including Joel Anthony are better than anyone on your favorite team.

5. The Heat actually beat Dallas two years ago. Don't argue.

6. the Heat are going for their 27th championship in a row this year.

7. The heat were 82-0 this season. They just decided to give out wins to certain teams on their schedule to show kindness. They actually could have won every one of them but tried NOT to.

8. Their is an excuse for every game they didn't win by 30 this year.

9. Your team actually never scored on Miami, you just think they did.

10. The refs never give any calls to Miami. Lebron james never got fouled all year because of the stupid NBA Refs and David Sterns vendetta against "The Decision" an ESPN Mini-series

Of Course the Nets, Spurs, Thunder, knicks, Clippers, Nuggests, Celtics, Pacers, Hawks, Jazz, Bulls, and Warriors have no chance to beat the Heat., just ask a heat fan.

Durant/Melo are tougher to guard than Rose and that was why I alluded to the fact that James would have no problem guarding Rose; especially when he isn't even 100%. Not saying Rose isn't good, just saying he's not going to be as threatening as he used to be.

And you know why? Which team has the most playoff experiences with each other?

The Nets just formed up this year essentially since Lopez was injured a majority of the games last year, JJ was signed and Gerald Wallace is injured prone.

Miami Heat have been in back to back championships. They played together much longer. They have gelled and they know how to get things done.

It doesn’t matter if Nets are strong where the Heat is weak, because its all about chemistry at the end of the day and the Heat have more winning chemistry in a playoff environment then Nets, where this roster together as a team has zero

The Nets and Chicago should be entertaining, but I dont see the Nets even getting passed them. Chicago should win in 5 and it will be a looooooooooooong time until we see DMF post again after that.... or he'll/she'll have a lame excuse as to why they lost....

Is Noah healthy enough to play the entire series?

I honestly think its a bad match up for you guys. The focal point of your offense is brook, they have Noah, Taj, and Booz to counter that. Dwill has definitely elevated his play, but I think especially if D Rose gives it a go, it'll be a long summer for you DMF. They are more complete and much better defensively thank Brooklyn. Your offense isnt powerful enough to beat them 4/7.

Bulls might only need 5 games to win this series.

Nets have 3 major offensive options and if Rose returns he hasnt played in an NBA game in 12 months there is no chemistry down, he isnt in game shape, no rhythm and he would have to deal with Deron Williams. Philly killed them last year, dude we know its going to be an easy series. Watch and learn this time next week nets will be up 3-0.

Nets have a small chance I'll give them that. They do have a nice advantage at PG and center. They just have to make sure Reggie Evans keeps his mouth shut and never compare Andray Blatche/Joe Johnson to Lebron James ever again lol.

I got three replies into this thread and stopped reading. Just going to throw in my two cents.

1. Heat fans are UBER Defensive. Heaven forbid ANYONE suggest that they are in any way vulnerable to defeat.

2. The regular season means nothing to heat fans unless it proves their point that they dominated you all year.

3. Heat fans are just so ridiculously cocky that everyone roots against their team

4. All Heat players including Joel Anthony are better than anyone on your favorite team.

5. The Heat actually beat Dallas two years ago. Don't argue.

6. the Heat are going for their 27th championship in a row this year.

7. The heat were 82-0 this season. They just decided to give out wins to certain teams on their schedule to show kindness. They actually could have won every one of them but tried NOT to.

8. Their is an excuse for every game they didn't win by 30 this year.

9. Your team actually never scored on Miami, you just think they did.

10. The refs never give any calls to Miami. Lebron james never got fouled all year because of the stupid NBA Refs and David Sterns vendetta against "The Decision" an ESPN Mini-series

Of Course the Nets, Spurs, Thunder, knicks, Clippers, Nuggests, Celtics, Pacers, Hawks, Jazz, Bulls, and Warriors have no chance to beat the Heat., just ask a heat fan.

Why exactly are we playing the playoffs anyway.

True story. You ask Heat fans, what happened when the Knicks beat them by 20pts during the first meeting?...Oh the Heat didn't feel like playing because of the hurricane lol
