Miami are 15-0 and looking ahead at their schedule for March. How long can the Heatles maintain their winning record?
With their 97-81 win over the Minnesota Timberwolves on Monday night, the Miami Heat set a franchise record for consecutive wins as they took their winning streak to 15.
Coasting at the top of the Eastern Conference with a 44-14 record, they have opened up a six game gap between themselves and nearest rivals Indiana Pacers.
Further stamping down their authority, they came from behind to defeat the New York Knicks at the Garden on Sunday to answer suggestions that they struggled on the road.
However, perhaps the scariest thing about this Heat team right now, is the uncertainty over when this run will end and who can stop them.
LeBron James is as formidable as ever, while Dwyane Wade is increasingly coming up with big numbers to support him.
They also have a roster packed with three-point specialists that they use ruthlessly, with the likes of Shane Battier and Ray Allen draining open threes to kill hopes, and games.
Looking at their schedule over the next fortnight and you have to wonder when, or if, they will be stopped any time soon.
They host two struggling teams this week with the Orlando Magic on Wednesday night, before the Philadelphia 76ers come to town on Friday.
They will be tested when the Pacers visit the AA Arena on Sunday, but even with the Atlanta Hawks following closely behind the Heat’s home form is intimidating as they sit with a 26-3 record.
That takes us to a five-game road trip, including possibly the game that could signal the end when they visit the Boston Celtics.
Make it through that though and the Heat are then presented with games against Cleveland, Detroit, Charlotte and Orlando before a trip to Chicago.
Naturally, as with any team they can have an off night, but considering the form that they’re in it is conceivable to suggest they could go unbeaten right up until they travel to San Antonio to take on the Spurs on the last day of the month.
While the Lakers’ record of 33 straight wins is far away at this point, the Heat can certainly edge closer over the coming weeks.
