NEW YORK -- Shaun Livingston was flying all over the court. LeBron James could only sit and watch. Joe Johnson scored 32 points, Livingston helped Brooklyn dominate the second overtime after James fouled out, and the Nets beat the Miami Heat 104-95 on Friday night for their fifth straight victory. Livingston had two baskets and two blocked shots in the second OT, finishing with 19 points, a career-high 11 rebounds and five assists over 51 minutes in a sensational effort while starting for injured Deron Williams. The Nets followed the lead of a player who spent years revitalizing a career that was sidetracked by a horrific knee injury, jumping on the Heat early and fighting them off late. "Gutsy. Gutsy," Kevin Garnett said. "I thought we fought for 48-plus minutes." Paul Pierce scored 23 points but missed jumpers that could have won it at the end of regulation and the first overtime. Still, the Nets remained unbeaten in 2014, adding a victory over the two-time defending NBA champions to their recent wins over Oklahoma City and Golden State. "It was huge," Livingston said. "Weve obviously been playing better as of late. I think our momentum that we were carrying into this game, were trying to ride that wave." James had 36 points, seven rebounds and five assists, but fouled out on an offensive foul with 36 seconds left in the first overtime and the Heat trailing by two. It was the first time that James fouled out in the regular season since 2008. Miami pushed it to a second overtime without him, but it was all Nets from there against a Heat team that was already missing Dwyane Wade and two other starters. James was visibly frustrated with his teammates in the first half -- he said he apologized at halftime for his attitude and body language. He was irate when Mirza Teletovic flagrantly fouled him, but nearly overcame all that to help Miami pull it out. "Were a no-excuse team, but right now we have three starters that didnt play," James said. "Even though weve got a lot of depth, it is hard to make up for three starters being out." Miami totalled six points in the overtimes, fewest ever in the shot clock era (since 1954-55) in a game that went at least two overtimes. Norris Cole scored 18 points, but Ray Allen was 2 of 14 for nine points in place of Wade, who rested his sore knees after playing 39 minutes in a loss at New York on Thursday. Shane Battier and Mario Chalmers also sat out the game, which featured players on both teams wearing nicknames on their jerseys, a first of its kind in the NBA. Livingston and Johnson made the first two baskets of the second overtime, then Livingston blocked a shot by Cole. Pierce followed with a 3-pointer, Garnett made a jumper and Livingston spun into the lane for a dunk and a 104-93 lead. He had another block on Allen, who finally made the Heats only basket of the second OT on a wide-open layup with 16 seconds to go. The Heat came up with the idea to wear nicknames on their jerseys and wanted another team to participate, and the Nets were selected. So in place of the teams regular jerseys were ones reading names such as King James and J. Shuttlesworth (for Allens character, Jesus Shuttlesworth, in the film "He Got Game.") The Nets wore their road black jerseys with Truth (Pierce) and Big Ticket (Garnett). Gimmicks are nice but good games are even better, and the Heat and Nets delivered a great one. "This was a playoff atmosphere-type game," Pierce said. "You just felt the energy in the building." The Nets led 93-89 in the first OT and were still up two after James fouled out, but Cole pushed the ball up the court and nailed a jumper with 3.3 seconds to go to tie it. The Nets controlled the second extra period, handing Miami a second loss in two nights in the Big Apple and matching their win total for both November and December, with eight games left this month. Even short-handed, James and the Heat played as though they desperately wanted this one, erasing a 14-point deficit. James looked ready to fight when Teletovic wrapped his arms around James neck to stop a drive to the basket with a flagrant foul. "He went around my neck," James said. "Its not a basketball play." Said Teletovic: "Just tried to make a foul to stop the score. He shouldnt be reacting like that. Its OK. Its just basketball." It was tied at 89 with 40 seconds left after a free throw by James, and Pierces long jumper rimmed out as time expired. "They made bigger plays going down the stretch in the overtime," Heat coach Erik Spoelstra said. "When we pushed it to that point, even with LJ out, we thought we had a chance. Guys really competed down the stretch." NOTES: The teams will wear the nickname jerseys again on March 12 and April 8 in Miami. The Heat will also wear them at home against Boston on Jan. 21. ... The Nets begin a three-game, three-country road trip Saturday in Toronto. They face the Atlanta Hawks on Thursday in London, then return home to visit the Knicks on Jan. 20.

Homme/Femme Adidas Superstar Foundation Collegiate Marine/Running Blanche Chaussures . - Gary Kubiak is John Elways No.MADRID, Spain -- No Cristiano Ronaldo? No problem. Real Madrids title ambitions continue to gain credence, with the Spanish giant showing no dip despite missing the Ballon dOr winner. Ronaldo has one more league game to serve from a three-match ban, and cannot return before next weeks Champions League game at Schalke. No matter, as Madrid stretched its unbeaten run to 25 games in all competitions with a comprehensive 3-0 victory at Getafe on Sunday. With and without Ronaldo, Madrid under coach Carlo Ancelotti has looked the more consistent, well-balanced team following a poor start to the campaign, with co-Spanish leaders Barcelona and Atletico Madrid enduring erratic runs of late. Gareth Bale has excelled when not nagged by injuries, while players like Luka Modric, Karim Benzema and Jese Rodriguez have been standouts. "I think the key to our success is that the team is unified," fullback Dani Carvajal said on Monday. "Everyone is contributing to the smallest detail, whether they are playing little or a lot." Jese has scored in five of his last six games, and has been slotted instantly into the attack whenever Ronaldo or Bale have been out. Spanish media are already touting the Spain Under-21 standout for a place in world champion Spains squad despite the rich attacking talent that includes Alvaro Negredo, Fernando Llorente, Diego Costa, and Fernando Torres. "Im not surprised by his play because hes playing great matches and scoring," Ancelotti said. "Weve already said a lot of goodd things about him, I just hope he keeps up like this.dddddddddddd" Ancelottis arrival has been a major boost for Madrid following the bitter exit of Jose Mourinho, who left following his worst season as a coach when the Portuguese manager had more success in creating divisions within his own club than his opponents schemes. Ancelotti has brought order to one of the worlds most expensive and talented stock of players and egos, perhaps better than any other Madrid coach since Vicente del Bosque. "No one gets upset with him, he is very transparent. Hes the same person you see at his news conferences," Carvajal said. "Hes maintained harmony inside the team, while keeping us all on our toes. He never tries to create problems." Ancelotti has stuck with goalkeeper Diego Lopez over Iker Casillas, who has assumed Champions League and Copa del Rey duties. That seems to have squashed the controversy as Madrid reached the domestic cup final without Casillas conceding a single goal. "Ive got two great goalkeepers, so I dont know if the situation is fair or not," the Italian coach said, "but its been a good means to motivating them both." While Ronaldo will miss Saturdays match against Elche, his teammates will be looking forward to his return regardless of their run. "Hes a player that should always be in the lineup," Lopez said. "Were lucky that we have other players who can step in but you always note the absence of a player of Cristianos quality."
