NBA Game Preview: Keys to the Brooklyn Nets' Wednesday Matchup vs the Miami Heat

After enduring two blowout losses on the road, the Brooklyn Nets returned home to defeat a struggling Orlando Magic team, and are now preparing to face none other than the defending champion Miami Heat.

It doesn't seem like a nice welcome home present, especially since the Nets suffered two blowout losses earlier in the season to the Heat—one of them by a gargantuan 30 points.

Not only were these two losses to the Heat extremely ugly, but the Nets just outright embarrassed themselves.

The Nets need a victory on Wednesday, or at least be able to compete for the full 48 minutes. More likely than not, they will need to defeat the Heat in the playoffs before they can even begin the championship chatter.

This game will be one of the most important ones of the Nets' season, because they have to make a statement to prove that they are legit contenders, not just a team full of misfit stars.
