The Miami Heat had their fair share of trouble with the Brooklyn Nets during the regular season, but it's business as usual for the two-time defending champs in the playoffs.

LeBron James had 22 points to lead all scorers and help the Heat to a 94-82 win over the Nets in Game 2 of their Eastern Conference semifinal.

Chris Bosh finished with 18 points and six rebounds, Dwyane Wade netted 14 points and Ray Allen scored all of his 13 points in the second half to give Miami a 2-0 series lead.

Mirza Teletovic tallied a team-high 20 points for Brooklyn on 6-of-9 shooting from 3-point range. Shaun Livingston contributed 15 points, while Paul Pierce and Joe Johnson added 13 points apiece in the setback.

Kevin Garnett made his first field goal of the series early in the third quarter and finished with four points along with a game-high 12 rebounds for the Nets.

Game 3 is set for Saturday in Brooklyn.
