Miami Heat Game-by-Game Predictions for the Month of April

With the No. 1 seed in the Eastern Conference wrapped up, the Miami Heat enter April with only one thing on the season left to accomplish: finish with the NBA's top record, thus earning home-court advantage throughout the postseason.

This should be very doable for Miami. It will enter the month with the game's best record and have a not-so-difficult April schedule. It has a couple of games against the league's bottom-feeders, and all of its meetings with postseason teams will take place in Miami where the Heat are dominant playing at.  

Something to monitor in April is how coach Erik Spoelstra handles the minutes of his star players as the season nears it end. Spoelstra could decide to start seriously monitoring minutes before the top seed is clinched.

If he doesn't do that, though, and lets his Big Three play near their season averages in minutes per game until the last couple of games, April could bring about a lot of winning for the Heat.
