MIAMI – Kevin Durant scored 23 points, Seth Curry added 17 and the Brooklyn Nets overwhelmed Miami 110-95 on Saturday night, sending the Heat to their season-worst fourth consecutive loss.

Andre Drummond had 13 points and 11 rebounds for Brooklyn, which got 11 points from Kyrie Irving — who will play his first home game of the season for the Nets on Sunday — and 10 from Nic Claxton.

Bam Adebayo scored 14 for Miami, which trailed by as many as 37 — its biggest deficit of the season.

The Heat were without coach Erik Spoelstra, who missed the game because of a family matter.
