The Miami Heat are heading towards the home stretch of the season and making headlines all the way. Here are a few of the more spicy ones from last week.

The Miami Heat are closing in on the home stretch of the season and like most any other team, they will want to close the season strong. On top of merely wanting to finish with a bang, the Miami Heat are still jousting for position in the NBA’s Eastern Conference playoff race, which gives them a little extra motivation.

Specifically, with the Boston Celtics losing six of their last eleven contest, the Miami Heat are in a prime position to make a move. They will need most of their remaining games, while hoping that the Celtics continue to drop a few more here or there.

Either way, the Miami Heat will be ready for whoever they face in the playoffs, but the proverbially easier the path the better. In any event though, this is one of the many storylines eating away at Miami Heat Faithful currently, but it isn’t the only one. Here are a few of the ones that did well here at AUCH in the past week.

Duncan Robinson is the best 3-point shooter in the NBA right now

As the headline implies, we believe there isn’t a shooter at the moment in the league that is shooting it better than the Miami Heat’s Duncan Robinson. Not only is he crazy accurate and efficient, but he shoots it with such volume that it makes it just that much more unbelievable.

To be frank, the only two names in the NBA that can be placed with his when it comes to in-game shooting from distance is Steph Curry and Klay Thompson and that is no boost or hype. The only thing is, neither of those guys have played much if at all this year and Duncan is the one setting and/or breaking records momentarily.

Also consider the fact that he’s made seven, eight, and nine threes over his last three games and it starts to make sense. That’s why we make the case here that he is undoubtedly the best shooter in the NBA right now.

A trio of summer trade window options who could curb future droughts

Even though there are some, like myself, that believe that the Miami Heat have enough to somehow compete for a title this season, it would be a farce to say that I don’t think they should look to add more pieces if they can. In the above piece, we explore those options and possibilities.

While I won’t totally ruin the work, one of those names just might be the guy who’s jersey Bam Adebayo sported after beating said player’s team in a game on Sunday night. The rest may totally surprise you.

How Jae Crowder can most help Miami Heat title push

Jae Crowder has been better than advertised since coming over from the Memphis Grizzlies in that deadline deal. He has hit the three with volume, defended his tail off, and made the little effort plays that he has come to be known for.

When thinking about what he can do to help the Miami Heat’s title push, it’s simply more of the same. That’s the case we lay before you in this piece.

Miami Heat would be Harvey Dent if the NBA were the DC Universe

The Miami Heat can be a very hot and cold team, so to speak. They can come out on one night and look like world-beaters, while coming out the next night to look really bad.

This is something that has not only gotten them beat in the regular season, but it will definitely do as such in the playoffs. This is the phenomenon we explore here.

Next. No game until Wednesday? Tell that to the headlines.. dark

The Miami Heat still have a ton of ball to play in the season. That continues on Wednesday against the Charlotte Hornets. They should be ready and rested to go, even off of a double-overtime loss to the Atlanta Hawks on Monday and we can’t wait!
