The Miami Heat have now won their fourth game in a row, against the Toronto Raptors. Not only were the Heat without Dwyane Wade yet again, they were also without Chris Bosh, but that didn’t seem to slow Miami’s roll. Miami won  96 to 72, sweeping the Raptors in the season series. Lebron James had another astonishing game, shooting a remarkable 80% from the court. James recorded 28 points, 5 rebounds, 4 assists and 2 steals. Mike Miller scored an outstanding 13 points for Miami; nevertheless, the production in the bench tonight is what the Heat could have used all season. Miami Heat’s bench also helped out for bringing down 21 rebounds and scoring 41 points. The Heat have now locked in the second seed in the East but could ultimately take the best record in the NBA with a win tomorrow night with the against the Chicago Bulls; Miami would only be a game and a half behind them. Then, if Chicago were to lose another game before the end of the season and Miami were to win the next few, Miami would be awarded the first seed, not only in the Eastern Conference, but in the entire NBA. Wining tonight’s game against Toronto makes James and the Miami Heat tied for second seed with Kevin Durant and the Oklahoma City Thunder. If Miami could pull away with that first seed and/or a better record than Oklahoma, it would give Lebron yet another edge on Durant for the MVP award. By the way, don’t expect Wade to be back until the playoffs due to the fact that he’s injured and most teams usually pull their star players away before playoffs to prevent injuries.
