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.

How do you expect the Breakers to perform in this season's Australian NBL?

Last season was a blip, they'll be champions once again

They'll go close to another title, beaten finalists I'd say

Playoffs for sure, but can't see them going any further

Not too excited, they'll miss the playoffs again
