Scouting reports: Cavs-Pistons | Nets-Heat | Mavs-Spurs | Clippers-Suns

Heat offense: The Nets have had no answers for Dwyane Wade in this series. They have no solution for his quickness. Wade's ability to drive and score and drive and kick is creating all the offense the Heat need. Pat Riley will go to Wade over and over again against any matchup New Jersey throws at him, because he knows Wade will find a way to score or get a teammate a great shot.
