Recap: Miami vs. Brooklyn

Miami, FL (Sports Network) - Before the Miami Heat embark on an upcoming two- week, six-game road swing, they had to take care of business in the finale of a brief homestand against the Brooklyn Nets.

They did just that for the 10th straight time.

LeBron James was two assists away from a triple-double in the Heat's 103-73 rout of the Nets.

James tallied 20 points, 12 rebounds and eight helpers, while Dwyane Wade added 22 points for Miami, which swept its three-game homestand.

"You have to come and take care of business early, especially on the home court," said Wade.

The defending NBA champions have won 16 of their last 18 games in South Beach dating back to last season. The road trip starts Friday in Atlanta with their next home tilt not until Nov. 21 against Milwaukee.

Deron Williams scored 14 points, but turned the ball over seven times for the Nets, who shot just 37.5 percent (30-of-80) from the floor and 14.3 percent (3-of-21) from beyond the arc.

"We came out pretty well to start, but you have to be able to sustain that kind of play against a good team like that," said Williams. "It's early in the season and we'll get things together."

Miami held a nine-point halftime advantage but blew the contest open in the third quarter.

Back-to-back 3-pointers by Shane Battier and Mario Chalmers capped a 10-0 run, which made it 64-48 midway through the third.

James nailed a triple with 5.6 left in the period to give Miami a 79-56 margin heading into the final frame.

The final score was the Heat's largest lead in the contest.

The Heat took a 26-22 advantage into the second and a 50-41 edge into the halftime break.

Johnson headlines FCS players of the week

In 2013, the Montana State Bobcats made a bit of an offensive switch, going from a pass-heavy system to a more run- integrated style of play. The reason wasn't because the team was unstable at quarterback, but rather due to the fact the Bobcats were loaded at the running back position.
