Default Norris Cole steps up in win over Nets

For Norris Cole, it was like finding the smallest of scratches on a luxury car.

Cole turned in perhaps his best overall performance of the season, but afterward pointed out the one blemish in Saturday's game against the Brooklyn Nets. He scored a season-high 12 points while being a key cog in holding Nets guard Deron Williams to just 10 points on 3 of 11 shooting in the Heat's 102-89 victory.

"Well, he did have 12 assists," Cole said. "Wasn't too happy about that."

In Cole's defense, eight of those assists came in the first quarter when the Heat were struggling defensively. Cole was also on the bench for most of that span, but spent the next three quarters making it difficult for Williams.

"Norris was amazing," forward LeBron James said. "His intensity was great on the ball against one of the best point guards in the league."
