In a game filled with sloppy play and turnovers from the defending champs, the Brooklyn Nets were able to notch an impressive 86-62 win Thursday night.

The game, which was preceded by Jason Kidd's jersey retirement, saw Brook Lopez chip in 14 points and grab five rebounds, while Joe Johnson notched 10 points, five rebounds and three assists.

Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett were used sparingly, with Pierce shooting 2-of-8 and going 1-of-7 from three.

KG played just over 10 minutes, all in the first half and finished with two points and one rebound.

The win moves Brooklyn to 4-1 while the Heat fell to 3-2.

Besides LeBron James posting 16 points, five rebounds and four assists and Chris Bosh notching 16 points and nine boards no one on Miami could get anything going. The Heat shot just 32 percent for the game and 29 percent from three.
