The Miami Heat are officially the NBA’s hottest team.
No, that is not a typo. And no, the year is not 1997 or 2012.
The Milwaukee Bucks, on the other hand are struggling to stay afloat despite having a young roster that shown plenty of potential to compete at a high level this season.
*All statistics, rankings, standings and records are accurate as of this writing at 1:30 a.m. ET onTuesdayy, Feb. 7.
The Miami Heat have found a go-to option in Dion Waiters (that is also not a typo). In a season that saw the Big Three era officially become a distant memory, nobody would have expected this team to be back in the playoff race after starting the year 2-8, and eventually 8-30.
All that said, the Heat and Waiters have turned things around in convincing fashion. Waiters has become lethal from both inside and outside the three-point line, and Miami has won 11 straight following its most recent outing — a 115-113 victory over the Minnesota Timberwolves on Monday night.
Entering this contest against Milwaukee, the Heat are averaging 100.4 points per contest, which is only good enough for 27th in the league. That said, that number jumped up to 109.7 points per night during its 11-game winning streak.
Defensively, the Heat are giving up 101.9 points per game, which is good enough for fifth in the Association.
Miami is still far from a lock to make the postseason, but it’s within two games of eighth place, which is better than anyone anticipated this group, surely bound for the lottery, would be at this juncture.
Unlike Miami, the Bucks are struggling big time. They managed to take down the Phoenix Suns 137-112 in their most recent outing; however, their record over their last 2-10 in their last 12.
Currently, this squad sits one spot ahead of the Heat at 10th in the Eastern Conference.
On the year, Milwaukee is scoring 105.3 points per night. That number is good enough for 15th in the league, which puts them directly in the middle of the rankings
Defensively, the Bucks are allowing 105.1 points per game. That number puts them one spot higher in the rankings than their offense at 14th.
