If anything has grown abundantly clear through the course of Friday night’s game between the Miami Heat and Brooklyn Nets, it’s that if the Nets were as good as we thought they’d be right now, this would indeed be the best rivalry in the Eastern Conference. Even with the Nets struggling this year, they have been able to hold their own against the Heat keep the game tight.
The Heat are a team that hates to lose or have things not go their way, so naturally they’re taking a disliking to the beating the Nets are putting on them in Brooklyn.
Late in the game we saw the tempers flare up and boil over as LeBron James took exception to a hard foul and a fight nearly broke out between the two teams.
It’s really a tease, as this rivalry has so much potential and if the Nets were truly as good as we thought they’d be, we’d be seeing so much more than just this little scuffle a lot more often.
