Miami Heat: Can They Hold on To The Top Spot After 4-Game Skid?
The Heat usually start out strong, but it became clear that they need everyone healthy if they are going to be legitimate competitors. In the absence of Tyler Herro, Miami lacked the scoring consistency to contain the other team’s scoring runs towards the end of games.
Even though the Heat lost those four games in a row, they are still sitting at the top of the Eastern Conference. However, their loss on Saturday night to the Nets dropped them to second in the East, with the 76ers holding the tiebreaker.
The top of the East is very tight right now. The top four seeds are only separated by half a game.
At this point, anyone could claim the top spot. Can the Miami Heat hold on to it after regaining it in their Monday night win over Sacramento?
