Last Five Games: 4-1
Last 10 Games: 8-2
Despite their cavalier attitude—am I allowed to use that phrase to describe LeBron James' team?—about the regular season, the Miami Heat are sitting pretty at 32-14 with an 8-2 record over their past 10 games.
That's good enough for them to move up to No. 2 in the power rankings, especially since the only two losses came in a tight game against the Indiana Pacers and in overtime to the Boston Celtics.
LeBron, in particular, has just been playing otherworldly basketball. If everyone else in the world plays basketball, we might need to invent a new word to describe what LeBron is doing because at times it just seems like he's playing a different sport.
We should be far more impressed by performances like his 13-of-14 outing against the Charlotte Bobcats when he recorded 31 points, eight rebounds and eight assists. Yes, that was against the Bobcats, but it's still ridiculously impressive.
And it's becoming more and more like the norm for the reigning MVP and his supporting cast.
