The Brooklyn Nets (43-34) completed a 4-0 season sweep of the Miami Heat (53-24) with an 88-87 victory Tuesday night at the AmericanAirlines Arena.
The Nets were led by Joe Johnson, who scored 19 points, including a crucial floater with one minute left in the game.
Marcus Thornton, who was ball hawking all night, snagged four steals to go along with 16 points on 6-of-8 shooting off the bench.
Paul Pierce and Mirza Teletovic also hit double-figures for Brooklyn.
Miami was led by LeBron James, who scored 29 points on 9-of-16 shooting to go along with 10 rebounds. He failed to score on Miami's last possession of a game on a play Heat fans and players thought was a foul on Mason Plumlee.
Refs decided not to blow their whistles after Plumlee turned away an attempt by James at the rim in which he may have gotten some of the shooter's hand.
Chris Bosh and Norris Cole were the only other Heat players in double figures. They combined for 22 points on 10-of-22 shooting.
