Preview: 76ers at Heat

The Miami Heat are locked into the No. 2 seed in the Eastern Conference playoffs, and that appears to be just fine with the two-time defending champions. “It will be no disappointment when the playoffs start,” Dwyane Wade said of losing the No. 1 seed. “It will be a new season and we will be looking forward to it.” The slumping Heat will face either the Washington Wizards or Charlotte Bobcats in the first round of the playoffs, but first they host the Philadelphia 76ers on Wednesday on the final night of the regular season.

Preview: Nets at Heat

The Brooklyn Nets have spent the last few months proving they belong among the elite teams in the Eastern Conference. The Nets will get a chance to make their case once again when they visit the Miami Heat on Tuesday. Brooklyn won each of the first three meetings with the Heat and owns a 32-13 record in 2014 while East-leading Miami is 29-16 in that span with a pair of losses to the Nets.

Preview: Timberwolves at Heat

Sitting in a virtual tie for the top spot in the Eastern Conference, the Miami Heat can't afford any slip-ups if they want to secure homecourt advantage throughout the East playoffs. The Heat will try for their fifth straight win Friday when they host Kevin Love and the Minnesota Timberwolves. Miami's four straight wins have all come by double-digits, including a 96-77 rout of league-worst Milwaukee on Wednesday.

Preview: Bucks at Heat

The Miami Heat went into Milwaukee over the weekend and put on a defensive clinic in cruising to a victory. The Bucks will try to put together a better offensive showing when they visit Miami on Wednesday. The 88-67 victory at Milwaukee marked the second of a three-game winning streak for the Heat that has them in a virtual tie with the Indiana Pacers atop the Eastern Conference with nine games left in the regular season.

Preview: Heat at Pistons

The Miami Heat squandered a big opportunity at Indiana on Wednesday and are running out of time to fix their road woes. The Heat will attempt to snap a three-game road slide when they visit the Detroit Pistons on Friday. Miami came up just short against the Pacers, falling three games behind in the race for the top spot in the Eastern Conference when Chris Bosh’s final heave missed the mark in an 84-83 setback.

Preview: Nuggets at Heat

The slumping Miami Heat brought some of their road struggles home in a loss to the Brooklyn Nets on Wednesday and are suddenly having some trouble scoring. The Denver Nuggets, who visit the Heat on Friday, are usually very generous in giving up points to the opposing team and are 1-2 on their five-game road trip. Miami has dropped four of its last five contests and remains two games behind the Indiana Pacers for the top spot in the Eastern Conference.

Preview: Nets at Heat

After halting a three-game losing streak, the Miami Heat will look to extend their torrid pace at home when the Brooklyn Nets pay a visit on Wednesday. The Heat have won six straight on their home court and only the Indiana Pacers (29-4) are more efficient in their own building than Miami (25-4) this season. After the Heat clinched a playoff spot in a 99-90 effort against Washington Monday, Dwyane Wade told reporters, "We needed this win. We're not used to losing three games in a row."

Preview: Wizards at Heat

The Miami Heat look to avoid their first four-game losing streak in over three years when they host the Washington Wizards on Monday night in the opener of a four-game homestand. The Heat should be happy to be back in Miami after going 0-3 on a challenging road trip, capped by a 95-88 overtime loss in Chicago on Sunday. LeBron James was held to 17 points and did not attempt a free throw for the first time in four seasons for the Heat, who lost a 12-point lead in the fourth quarter and ran out of steam in overtime.

James sank eight 3-pointers, hitting 22-of-33 shots from the field overall, and also grabbed seven rebounds and passed off five assists.

Preview: Bobcats at Heat

The Miami Heat are in the midst of their second-longest winning streak of the season as they look to wrap up a perfect home stand against the Charlotte Bobcats on Monday. The Heat have won seven straight and 10 of 11 to close within 2 1/2 games of Indiana for the top spot in the Eastern Conference.
