MIAMI — Joe Harris scored a career-high 21 points, Rondae Hollis-Jefferson added 18 and the Brooklyn Nets embarrassed the Miami Heat, 111-87, on Friday (Saturday, Manila time).

Caris LeVert and Jarrett Allen each had 12 for the Nets, who were actually down 18-8 early — then outscored Miami 85-37 over the next 28 minutes. LeVert added a career-best 11 assists.

It matched the biggest win by the Nets over the Heat ever, going along with the 24-point victory by New Jersey on Dec. 1, 1989, which was early in the second season in Miami franchise history.

Josh Richardson scored 19 points for Miami.
