The Miami Heat are on fire. Well, not really. They’re currently on a winning streak of four games.
The feat is something the Miami Heat achieved during their first five games of the season.
Each of the Heat's first four wins came by double digits. Three of those wins were by 26 or more points, highlighted by their thrashing of the Orlando Magic.
The Miami Heat have now won three or more consecutive games on three separate occasions.
Now the Miami Heat are about to embark on their longest road trip this season.
Yes, they will be on the road for all of six days and play a whopping four games against opponents who are a combined 34-42.
The so called experts suggest this will be another test to further gauge a team that has seemingly made tremendous strides over the past week.
So make no mistake, this brief road trip won’t be some kind of bonding experience for the Miami Heat. Nor should it be a very challenging one either.
What it should be is another step in the Heat’s quest to continue its climb atop the Eastern Conference standings. It also should be another step in the cohesion process for a team that is still learning what they are.
So what can Miami Heat fans and detractors expect out of the Heat this week?
Will they finish .500, undefeated or end up with their longest losing streak of the season?
