After taking down the Orlando Magic in sloppy fashion, the Brooklyn Nets swing to South Beach tonight to take on the reigning NBA champion Miami Heat. The Nets, riding a five-game winning streak, will see that streak tested tonight- the Heat dismantled the Nets to the tune of 103-73 in their last meeting, and Brook Lopez will sit for the second straight game to rest his right foot.
Joining me to talk tonight's teams and matchup is Tom Haberstroh of ESPN's Heat Index, one of the smartest hoops writers around and someone who's covered this Miami Heat team since LeBron James joined it in 2010. I've asked Tom three questions on the Heat, and he's asked me three on the Brooklyn Nets.

Devin: Brook Lopez is out for tonight's game. The Nets already had a minor chance at best at stealing this road game; would you say that chance is all but eliminated now?
