Game Story

MIAMI (Ticker) -- Eddie Jones' big third quarter helped keep alive a couple of impressive streaks for the Miami Heat. Jones scored 14 of his 18 points in the decisive third period as the Heat pulled away from the New Jersey Nets, 90-65, to extend their winning streak at American Airlines Arena to 12 games and their overall tear to eight. "It's fun," Jones said. "It just feels like you can do anything." It was the fewest points allowed this season by the Heat, who held the Nets to 29.7 shooting (22-of-74), also a season best. "They had a miserable day, but at least part of it was us," Miami coach Stan Van Gundy said. Shaquille O'Neal contributed 15 points and 11 rebounds and Damon Jones added 15 points for Miami, which limited New Jersey to just 26 second-half points on 17 percent shooting (6-of-35). Miami trailed, 48-47, after Vince Carter sank a free throw with 7:28 left in the third quarter. The Heat countered with an 11-0 run, which O'Neal capped with a dunk for a 58-48 lead with 4:12 remaining in the period. "With 2:59 left in the third quarter it was an eight-point game, eight becomes 15 at the end of the third, and so on and so forth," Nets coach Lawrence Frank said. "We had some defensive slippage but obviously had a hard time making a shot." The Heat stretched their lead to 70-55 entering the fourth quarter on a buzzer-beating 3-pointer by Eddie Jones and pushed the advantage to as many as 30 points down the stretch. "It felt great," Eddie Jones said. "Before that, I shot an airball, and I just wanted to get Damon Jones off my back." Eddie Jones did most of his damage with All-Star guard Dwyane Wade on the bench with foul trouble. Wade finished with 13 points. "It was just attacking and being aggressive," Eddie Jones said. "Once Dwyane came out of the game, I was just trying to be more aggressive and be more assertive to make plays for myself and the other guys. When the game comes to you like that, you take the shots when they are there." Miami, which is 15-3 since February 1, scored 23 of the final 30 points in the third quarter. Conversely, New Jersey missed 14 of its last 15 shots in the period. Carter scored 20 points to pace the Nets, who made just 1-of-11 3-pointers. "We didn't make shots," said Carter, who was 5-of-14. "It's simple. ... We were in good position with Dwyane Wade in foul trouble. All we had to do was contain Shaq, and try to prevent the other guys from stepping up." New Jersey notched its fewest basket since making only 21 at Miami on January 23, 2004. The Nets were only three points off the franchise-low mark set against Cleveland on January 28, 1997. "We were stuck on 60 points for a while," Nets guard Jason Kidd said. "I'm just glad we got past 60. ... I guess we were cold."
