Another downright ugly preseason loss causes unrest in Nets World
Nets fans aren't panicking just yet, but maybe they should be.
After committing 26 turnovers and looking disjointed for a second straight outing in the preseason, Brooklyn looks to have more than a few kinks to work out ahead of the start of the regular season.
The Nets were outplayed in every facet by a Miami club that brought defensive physicality and sharp execution to the tune of a 109-80 drubbing.
Kevin Durant finished with 22 points and 4 rebounds, Ben Simmons 4 points, 4 assists, 10 rebounds and 6 careless turnovers.

Kyrie Irving sat out Thursday's contest, so Brooklyn was basically noncompetitive from the opening tip.
Steve Nash has shifted away from isolation basketball to a more team centric approach predicated on ball movement and man movement.

Theoretically, this is the best adjustment the Nets can make, but through two preseason games a lot more has gone wrong than has gone right with the regular season opener less than two weeks away.
