Miami Heat: Looking for continued dominance
Miami is playing some of the best basketball imaginable right now as they are in the midst of a 16-game winning streak. At home, the Heat are 27-3 and have an overall record of 45-14.

They are in the midst of a three-game losing streak and have lost 10 of their last 11 games overall. On the road, the Sixers are in the midst of an 11-game losing streak.
