After the Miami Heat dominated the first two game in the Eastern Conference Semifinals, the Brooklyn Nets are back in this best-of-seven series after convincingly winning Game 3 to the tune of 104-90 at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York.
Heat still lead the series, 2-1 but the Nets can tie it on Monday's Game 4.
Brooklyn used the third quarter to create some distance off the defending champions. They outscored Miami, 26-14 in that period behind a barrage of three-pointers. The Nets had a total of 15 field goals made from behind the arc for the game shooting a sizzling 15-of-25 3FG or 60.0 per cent.
Joe Johnson hit 5-of-7 three-pointers for 19 points. He also added 6 assists. All Nets starters contributed in this one: Paul Pierce had 14 points, Kevin Garnett had 10 points, Deron Williams had 9 points and 11 assists and Shaun Livingston added 12 markers.
Brooklyn's bench also came up big outscoring the Miami's reserves, 48-25 led by Andre Blatche's playoff career-high 15 points (5-10 FG) and added 10 boards. Mirza Teletovic had a dozen points shooting 4-of-7 from behind the arc.
The Heat got 28 points from LeBron James, 20 from Dwyane Wade but had little help elsewhere.
