The Brooklyn Nets will be trying to snap a 2-game skid as they head to South Beach Saturday to take on the Miami Heat in the 2nd game of a back-to-back set.

While the Brooklyn Nets attained a significant milestone when they beat the New York Knicks on Dec. 8 to snap a string of 33 straight losses on the road when playing the second game of a back-to-back, Saturday’s meeting with the Miami Heat provides another sort of similar opportunity.

The Nets hadn’t won in that scenario since Dec. 21, 2015, beating the Chicago Bulls at United Center. On Saturday, Brooklyn (32-32) can win on the road in the second game of a back-to-back after losing the front end at home for the first time since … Dec. 21, 2015.

More from Nothin' But Nets

That win three seasons ago against the Bulls came directly after a loss at Barclays Center the previous night. The Nets face that scenario after losing a 123-112 decision to the visiting Charlotte Hornets on Friday.

Brooklyn has lost its last two games while the Heat (27-34) have lost four of five and are 2-7 in their last nine games after dropping a 121-118 decision on the road Thursday to the Houston Rockets.

On Friday against the Hornets, the Nets were down 68-50 at halftime and trailed by as much as 21 points, never getting closer than nine points in the second half.

D’Angelo Russell had 22 points and nine assists for Brooklym, while DeMarre Carroll scored 20 points. Caris LeVert finished with 14 points and seven rebounds and Joe Harris also grabbed seven boards.

On Thursday in Houston, Miami took its largest lead at 82-61 with 8:44 left in the third quarter and was up 98-86 at the quarter break before the Rockets stormed back.

Chris Paul hit a pair of free throws with 3:27 left to give Houston the lead for good and then put the Rockets up three with a pull-up jumper with 46.2 seconds left.

Justise Winslow missed two free throws with 42.3 seconds remaining and Dion Waiters‘ potential game-tying 3-pointer with 4.5 seconds left was off-target.

Kelly Olynyk and Goran Dragic led the Heat with 21 points each, while Winslow had 19 points, seven rebounds and eight assists. Josh Richardson went for 18 points and three steals and Bam Adebayo — starting for an injured Hassan Whiteside — had 10 points and two blocks.

Since Miami entered the NBA as an expansion club in 1988, the Nets are 50-71 in the all-time series, but have won four of the last five.

The Heat have the longest winning streak in that span, taking 13 in a row from Nov. 14, 2009, to Jan. 30, 2013. The Nets won five straight from March 15, 2002, to April 4, 2003.

Miami also has the highest point total in the series, coming in a 134-119 win at East Rutherford on Feb. 6, 1991. The high game for the Nets came 11 days earlier in a 127-105 victory at Miami on Jan. 26, 1991.

The biggest blowout of the series came in Miami on March 6, 2012, in a 108-78 Heat victory and the Heat matched that margin with a 103-73 win at Miami in Nov. 7, 2012. The Nets’ largest win was a 101-77 victory at East Rutherford on Dec. 1, 1989.

Vince Carter holds the individual single-game scoring lead with 51 points in a Nets win at Miami on Dec. 23, 2005. For Miami, Alonzo Mourning scored 43 points in a win at Miami on Feb. 23, 2000, and Dwyane Wade matched that total in a win at East Rutherford on Dec. 20, 2008.

In the Brooklyn era that begin in 2012, the Nets are 9-15 against the Heat. Miami has the longest winning streak in that span with a six-game run from Jan. 26, 2016, to Dec. 9, 2017. Brooklyn won four in a row from Nov. 1, 2013, to April 8, 2014.

The Heat posted the high score of the era in a 120-107 win at Barclays Center on Nov. 14. The Nets have twice scored 111 points, most recently in a 111-87 victory at Miami on Dec. 29, 2017, which is also Brooklyn’s most lopsided win since the start of the 2012-13 season.

While LeBron James had the individual scoring lead in a single game with 36 points in a loss at Barclays Center on Jan. 10, 2014, Wade has the most in a regulation game with 34 points in a victory at Miami on Dec. 1, 2012.
