NEWARK, N.J. -- A few post-game thoughts before the circus heads for the west coast...
--The Heat held the Nets to 33.7 percent from the field and 30.3 percent from three-point range. This dominating defensive performance was summed up in one play when The Warden rejected Mrs. Kardashian at the rim during a dunk attempt.
--The Heat shot exactly 50 percent (38 of 76) despite going 5 of 15 from three-point range.
--LeBron's 22 points in the first quarter set the league mark for the season. James was 7 of 7 from the field and 8 of 9 from the free-throw in the first quarter.
--The Heat had 34 points in transition. 34!
--Norris Cole looked good in his 30 minutes. He had nine points, six assists, three rebounds and three steals.
