Know Thy Enemy: The Heat

82 games down, 16 wins to go; Wrapping up the the regular season - Peninsula is Mightier

Wednesday's victory over New Jersey gave the Heat 47 wins on the season. Back on March 1st that win total seemed pretty unrealistic. Miami was on the outside of the playoff picture looking in, sitting in 9th place with a record of 29-31, 1½ games back of 9th place Charlotte. Since then, the Heat has been on an absolute tear.

They went 18-4 in their final 22 games, jumping over Charlotte, Toronto, Milwaukee and Chicago en route to claiming the 5 seed for the second consecutive season. Knowing that this season's roster was made up mostly of players that will come off the books before the summer, this year couldn't have ended up much better for the Heat.
