Pro: An easy schedule going forward

Even including the four-game trip to start the post-All-Star slate, the Heat have the 23rd easiest remaining schedule according to opponent win percentage.

The Heat don’t face Boston or Milwaukee again this season. Their toughest games will be the Nuggets twice (in Denver on Feb. 29, at home on March 13), at Oklahoma City (March 8), at Cleveland (March 20), home vs New York (April 2) and home vs Philadelphia (April 4).

The Heat will get a chance to stack wins against teams like the Pistons (three games) and Wizards (two games). They end the season with two games against the Raptors, who are currently 19-36. Miami is 15-6 against teams with a bottom-10 point differential, according to Cleaning The Glass.
