This is it...

The HEAT are finally turning the corner and playing some good, consistent basketball, right? They’ve won four of their last five games......they’ve won three in a row at home for the first time this season......they now sit alone in the 8th and final playoff spot in the East

This is the turning point, right? The push for the playoffs. Right?? Not so fast.......

The wins during this stretch are against some pretty inferior competition. Save for a huge win over Golden State (not a small thing!), the wins have come over Brooklyn, Charlotte, and Atlanta. If you want to say the Heat are finally putting something together, you’re about to get a definitive answer in the next couple weeks. 

Check this out: After tonight’s contest against lowly Cleveland, the Heat face as difficult a stretch they’ve seen all season. We’re talking Toronto, Detroit, Milwaukee, and Charlotte at home. Then Oklahoma City, San Antonio, and Milwaukee on the road. 

That’s no joke. But, by the end of this stretch, we’ll definitely know if we need to make plans for playoff basketball or not.
