Record: 28 - 9
Last Week's Rank: 1
Last Week's Results: W @ Portland 107-93, (Thu); L @ Utah 98-99, (Fri); L @ LA Lakers 83-93, (Sun)
This Week: vs. New Jersey, Tuesday (3/6); vs. Atlanta, Wednesday (3/7); vs. Indiana, Saturday (3/10)

With back-to-back losses last week, is it time for the Heat to start hitting the panic button? Hell no! A Tuesday showdown with New Jersey should get the team back on track. Sorry, Nets fans. Chris Bosh returns to the Heat today after missing three games due to the death of his grandmother, and unlike last year when the team performed adequately even with his ghost performances, Miami looks like they need CB to be the well-oiled machine (II) that they were throughout the early parts of this season. —Jose Martinez
