NET NOTES

MIAMI - On some nights, Sean Williams had been the eighth man in a seven-man Nets rotation. He said he has tried to stay ready. Last night, he was.

Summoned with 2:48 left in the third quarter, he had an immediate impact. He had a put-back dunk, slammed an alley-oop from Terrence Williams, blocked one Joel Anthony shot and altered another by Anthony. And that was all in the third. He was even better in the fourth, when he scored eight more points.

"I'm a professional and I've got to be ready to play," said Williams, who had sat out the four previous games and played just 49 minutes before last night. "Go out there and do what you do. I'm just going to try to be ready when my name is called."

*

The Nets , who already were down another body last night because Bobby Simmons left the team to return to Chicago for personal reasons, nearly lost another. Eduardo Najera's back flared up and Williams was summoned to replace him.

For the third time in four games, the Nets had eight available bodies, including a hurting Najera and Chris Douglas-Roberts, who was playing his second game since a bout with swine flu. Douglas-Roberts scored 16 points in 36 minutes. He played 18 Friday in Orlando.

"I'm pretty good, pretty good," he said. "We're just going to keep on increasing my minutes."

*

The next player back should be Courtney Lee, who missed his fourth full game since straining his groin nine days ago.

"I might sneak in for some treatment [today] and run a little bit and shoot a little bit and try to [practice tomorrow]," said Lee, who is aiming to play Tuesday against Indiana following the disappointment of not facing his old Magic team Friday. "I really wanted to get out there and play against them."

*

The Nets led 19-17 after one quarter as Williams, in his second start, banked in a 56-foot shot. Refs reviewed the play and the call stood. . . . The Nets' 0-10 start is the worst in the NBA since Memphis dropped 13 straight to start 2002-03. . . . Brook Lopez needed 58 seconds to get more field goals than he had in Orlando Friday when he was 1-of-12. . . . Heat lost point guard Mario Chalmers (shoulder) 4:45 into the first quarter.
