The Heat took care of business this past week. They defeated the teams they were expected to beat (Cleveland, Detroit and New York) and narrowly escaped with the W over the Bulls. But hey, a win's a win and Miami are doing a lot of that. The Heatles are currently holding down a four-game winning streak and could very well push it to eight this week, if they can overcome a tough match-up against the Sixers in Philly. —Jose Martinez
