The defending NBA champion Miami Heat blew away their second successive opponent in a 103-73 rout over Brooklyn on Thursday (NZT).

The Heat, who have opened the new season with a revamped roster that has taken little time to mesh, followed up their 25-point victory over Phoenix with another impressive effort.

LeBron James sparkled with 20 points, 12 rebounds and eight assists while Dwyane Wade top scored with 22 points.

Miami made 10 three-pointers and befuddled the Nets with their passing, breaking the game wide open in the third quarter.

Shane Battier and Mario Chalmers made back-to-back three-pointers to cap a 10-0 run that put the Heat up 64-46 in the third, and James closed the quarter with a three-pointer of his own that stretched the lead to 23.

Deron Williams scored 14 points for the Nets.

What do you make of LeBron James' decision to return to Cleveland?

It's a good call and makes perfect sense. He's an Ohio boy

He should have stuck with the Miami Heat

Who cares? I'm all about the Breakers

Cavs fans will never forgive him for leaving them the first time
