Back to Back to Back … Bringin’ the Heat!

8 games in a row….

From Wizards to Hawks to Bucks (finally) to Pacers to Cavaliers to Magic to Kings and last but not least… our latest “pretender” the Knicks. After that first loss on the road against the Orlando Magic, it’s almost as if the team did a 180 and became the kind of team who started to show off their true talents.

Not only did we come back full force from that loss but we are starting to gain the kind of consistency that can take us a long way when it comes to the playoffs. We definitely got our payback against Dwight Howard and his Magic this past Sunday when our defense overcame their team by blocking any chance at a win. Our defense is just getting more and more aggressive on the court – and I know the following player does not get enough praise but HELLO CHRIS BOSH! I really believe his value has just gone up more and more this year with the improvement he has made on the defensive side, getting more rebounds and attacking the rim. While the big 3 are on the full force (Lebron is letting his MVP-ness come out), our bench is on a roll too. We cannot deny that players like Shane Battier(great player on both sides of the court), Udonis Haslem (ultimate rebounder), Norris Cole (Wade in the making), Joel Anthony (the blocker) and of course Mario Chalmers have all become great assets to the team. Running the plays better and knowing when to hand the ball over to one of the big guys, they are the guys who provide all the little details in the game that result in great wins. Yes Lebron James and Dwyane Wade have an amazing energy when they are both playing good, it was evident today during the New York Knicks game. Keeping the defense and offense all through the game, if one didn’t make the shot, the other was right behind him dunking the ball. While we have always had this ongoing rivalry with the Knicks, the Heat manage to crush them today in a very classy way – no talk, all walk. There was so much hype circling the Knicks rookie point guard Jeremy Lin – they thought Lin plus Melo plus Stoudemire and they’re set. Wrong. Granted I will say that Amare Stoudemire made a sick block during the game but other than a couple of good shots from Smith – the Knicks are still lacking in defense. I think they have a long way to go before opposing any kind of real threat to the Heat.

Despite our great wins, the truth is – it’s all about the playoffs. Yet there is no doubt about it that the Heat’s game is getting better as the season is progressing by beating everyone of the last 8 teams with 12 points or more. We are number one on the East side and one of the few teams to have six players going to the All Star game in Orlando. I say we are doing pretty good and will continue our streak if we keep playing this way. It’s a good time to be a Heat fan – not to mention … great bragging rights.

    Heat are doing great. Knicks were not to bad either. If they take away their silly mistakes and learn to play together, they can be a really good team.

    I agree but they have a long way to go. I think too much was placed on the rookie Lin that of course the fans were let down… the Heat had their job cut out for them last year too and it looks like the Knicks might be on the same boat this year.
