NEW YORK -

The Miami Heat are ready for their critical Game 4 showdown with the Brooklyn Nets.

Head coach Erik Spoelstra said, "We've been in this situation before and the biggest thing is, what is your response.  The response doesn't start tonight.  It starts in your preparation and the shootaround."

The Heat were blown out in Game 3.

Spoelstra said, "We know that the game we brought was not good enough to win on the road against this opponent."

Heat forward/center Chris Bosh said, "If people feel that you were dominated than you need to do something different.  Passion and intensity is going to be the key tonight."

Bosh said the key is "getting our hands dirty... being an intense human being."

Game 4 tips off at 8 p.m.
