Wang Zhi-Zhi outscored Jason Kidd and sparked host Miami. With starting center Brian Grant slowed by a knee bruise, the 7-foot-1 Wang came off the bench in the first half and finished with 11 points in 11 minutes, matching his point total for the season. Kidd shot 4-for-19 and narrowly missed his seventh triple double of the season. He had nine points, nine rebounds and eight assists. New Jersey, which had won five in a row against the Heat, shot 29 percent. YankeeNets voted in a teleconference to approve the sale of the Nets to developer Bruce Ratner, who intends to move them to Brooklyn. League owners must approve the deal.
