The Heat has won eight of its past 10 games, including the first two of a four-game road trip, but is this just the latest in a series of short runs of success for Miami this season or a sign of something more?
The more minutes Bam Adebayo gets on the court, the faster he figures things out. It has become a trend, with the Heat’s second-year big man playing the best basketball of his young NBA career in his new starting role.
The Heat held on for 110-105 win at AT&T Center to begin its challenging two-game trip with an impressive 2-0 record and end the Spurs’ nine-game winning streak. It marked Miami’s fourth-ever regular-season victory in San Antonio.
Remember when Dwyane Wade was on a maintenance program because of knee issues? That story line from the 2013-14 season seems like so long ago. Wade, who has been playing off the bench, is averaging 14.3 points in 60 games this season.
During the past five games, the Miami Heat has outscored teams by 38 when Goran Dragic and Dwyane Wade are on the floor together – making them statistically the best two-man combo on the team and one of the best backup guard combinations in the NBA.
After Monday’s impressive road win against the Oklahoma City Thunder, the Miami Heat moved to 7-2 in March this season. Miami has posted an eye-opening 111-59 record in March under coach Erik Spoelstra.
