LeBron James, Heat Are On Fire… 2-0

While just 4-6 in their last 10 games and slipping into the third seed in the Eastern Conference playoff scenario, the Miami Heat are now 2-0 since I imposed my “Win 18 in a row or else” law on them last week. I said the Heat couldn’t win against both the Los Angeles Lakers and the deceptively hot Memphis Grizzlies and they threw it back in my adorable face. Now the Heat face their biggest game of the season – IMO, as the Internet folk like to say – tonight in a rematch against the NBA’s best team, the San Antonio Spurs.

Back on March 4, the Spurs handed the Heat and their Three Kings their worst loss of the season with a 125-95 drubbing that makes a prison shower seem inviting. But Miami’s Two and a Half Superstars are more than likely going to be without center Zydrunas Ilgauskas tonight, as he was hospitalized with a foot infection. Meanwhile, Chris Bosh is averaging 21 points per game since being diagnosed with a yeast infection. I mean over the Heat’s two-game winning streak. Sorry, I got my thoughts mixed up.

So the question remains – can the Heat win 16 more games to match the regular season record of LeBron James’ 2009-10 Cleveland Cavaliers? And I have your answer after the jump…
