Miami looks to continue their surge toward the 3 seed as they welcome in the Phoenix Suns on Thursday night.
The Heat are just 1.5 games behind the 3rd seeded Celtics and will look to use games like this propel not only their confidence, but hopefully get their starters some rest.
The Suns haven’t really proven anything this season. The didn’t start all that bad, but following that they really went into a tailspin.
Their most recent stretch has covered 32 games. The Suns have dropped 29 of 32 overall and come in off a 126-92 loss to Charlotte, where they got completely embarrassed and showed very little fight.
The Suns are trying to get Alex Len and Tyson Chandler to come together and make Phoenix a dominating paint team. That hasn’t worked, but they continue try after Saturday’s rare win.
The Suns shocked Memphis in a 5 point win thanks to those two, but they haven’t been able to really find any sort of consistency, thus the giant losing size.
Phoenix has earned just 4 wins this season on the road.
Could Joe Johnson be the key game changer for the Heat?
Through his first two games, Miami has gone 2-0 and he looks like he’s fitting in perfectly within this system. Johnson chose the Heat thanks to his friendship with Dwayne Wade, and he’s made it seem like he’s been playing there for many months.
Also really contributing to this team’s success has been Luol Deng. The veteran has stepped up in place of Chris Bosh, who continues to be out, and has put up solid offensive numbers, along with being a difference maker defensively.
Miami has rattled off 11 straight wins in this head to head series as they have simply had the Suns number. The 11 wins includes a 103-95 win back on Jan. 8th where the Heat shot 50% from the field.
