STEVE MITCHELL / USA TODAY SPORTS
Miami bounced back this week after going 1-2 last week. The Heat had three games against teams with losing records and they won all three beating Detroit, Cleveland, and New Orleans. The Heat currently sit with a 9-3 record led by Bam Adebayo and Jimmy Butler. Adebayo and Butler both currently sit in the top 10 of Basketball-reference’s MVP tracker.
If Butler and Adebayo can continue their dominant play especially on the defensive end Miami could be a real threat to grab a top-three seed in the East. Miami has three games next week as they take on Cleveland, Chicago, and Philadelphia.
