The Miami Heat (56-14) has not lost since February 1st , a loss suffered to the Indiana Pacers. They have strung 27 straight wins together and are just six games away from tying the all-time record of 33 by the 1971-71 Lakers. However, the Lakers did not have to go through perennial superstars like Dr. Julius Erving, who all played in the ABA at that time. The Heat have won their last two games without Dwyane Wade in pretty boring fashion. They took down the Charlotte Bobcats by 32 points and then the Magic in Orlando by 14. LeBron James was a rebound short from yet another triple-double. With only six games away, the Heat have some big games coming up against a top five team in the East, the Bulls, and the best team in the West, the San Antonio Spurs.
Chicago (38-31) is treading water in fifth place in the Eastern Conference. They have played all season without their best player and former MVP Derrick Rose. The Bulls have won their last two, against the Pacers and the Timberwolves, but only four of their last 10 so take the points with the Bulls at online sports books.
