Brooklyn, NY (SportsNetwork.com) - All LeBron James could do was watch on the bench as Brooklyn seized control in the second overtime.

The Nets are still unbeaten in 2014.

Joe Johnson had 22 of his 32 points in the first quarter, Paul Pierce added 23 and the Nets defeated the Miami Heat 104-95 on Friday night.

James was whistled for his sixth and final foul with 36 seconds left in overtime. With the Heat trailing 93-91, James drove on Shaun Livingston, but was called for an offensive foul after putting his shoulder into him.

Norris Cole nailed a game-tying jumper with 3.3 seconds in the extra session to force a second overtime, where Brooklyn scored the first 11 points to seal the outcome.
