The Heat are hoping to snap their current three-game losing streak at the Barclays Center. The Nets are also on a three-game road skid, so being home should give them some added oomph.

Brooklyn returns most of its core players from last season. The major departures were Paul Pierce and head coach Jason Kidd, which made way for Lionel Hollins.

The Heat have been hindered by injuries during this three-game funk and that won’t change against the Nets. Danny Granger (hamstring), Dwyane Wade (hamstring), Josh McRoberts (foot) and Justin Hamilton (adductor) are doubtful for Monday’s contest.
