It's no secret. November has not been a kind month to the Miami Heat. Dwyane Wade had one of the worst games of his career on November 22nd, shooting 7.7 percent from the field on thirteen shots and turning the ball over five times.
Chris Bosh and LeBron James have played strong statistically, but the Heat will finish the month at a disappointing 7-7. Consequently, rumors have been flying concerning the security of head coach Erik Spoelstra's job.
December will be a big month for Miami. The Heat will have an opportunity to prove to the world that the Miami team that started 10-8 is not the Miami team that will exist for the rest of the season. More importantly, the Heat will have the chance to prove to Pat Riley that Erik Spoelstra should remain the team's coach for the entire season.
Miami plays 16 games in the month of December. The goal should be to get at least 12 victories. Here are predictions for how the Heat will do over the course of the next month.
