Allen will play at the shooting guard position, with Norris Cole continues to start at point guard.

Wade misses the game because of some soreness the Heat said, which means that LeBron James is expected to do the bulk of the scoring.

Shane Battier has a quad problem so he will not play as well.

Miami Heat Team: Norris Cole (PG) Ray Allen (SG) LeBron James (SF) Rashard Lewis (PF) Chris Bosh (C).

Brooklyn Nets Team: Shaun Livingston (PG) Alan Anderson (SG) Joe Johnson (SF) Paul Pierce (PF) Kevin Garnett (C).
