On Thursday night, the Miami Heat and Brooklyn Nets will participate in one of the NBA's preseason games on the schedule. The two Eastern Conference teams are both 1-0 so far in their Exhibition Games and looking to stay perfect. These two teams also appear headed in opposite directions this season as Miami is hoping to do what they couldn't last season and make it into the postseason. The Nets will try not to be the laughingstock of the NBA's lower standings. Here's the latest Heat vs. Nets game preview including matchup odds, TV time, channel, and live streaming feed options.

NBA game preview

The Miami Heat won their first preseason game against the Atlanta Hawks, 96-90.

Tyler Johnson scored 14 points to lead the way for Miami with Josh Richardson adding 12 and Rodney McGruder adding 10 points in the win. Hassan Whiteside recorded 11 rebounds in the game and scored eight points. The team is looking to once again contend for a possible playoff spot this coming season after missing out due to a tiebreaker with the Chicago Bulls last season.

The Brooklyn Nets are a team still in disarray but they've added a potential new star in former Lakers guard D'Angelo Russell. The team recorded a 115-107 win over in-state rivals, the New York Knicks. Russell finished with 19 points on 7-for-14 shooting, while DeMarre Carroll had 10 points and eight rebounds. Sean Kilpatrick added 15 points off the Brooklyn bench.
