The Heat is Blazing

"I am taking my talents to South beach," Lebron James said, when he made his final decision which landed him and Chris Bosh in Miami with Dwayne Wade.

Many fans and sports analyst disliked James' decision, but look at the Heat now. Miami has blazed up to the top spot in the Eastern Conference and holds a half-game lead over the Boston Celtics. The Heat record stands at 39-14 with three games left (including Feb. 13 against Boston) until the All-star break.

Their record also is second-best in the NBA behind the Spurs (44-9) and one ahead of the defending champs, Lakers (38-16).

The Heat are 20-5 at home and 19-9 on the road. James leads the team in scoring with 26.2 ppg, and also adds 7.4 apg and 7.4 rpg. Wade averages 25.2 points and 6.8 rebounds a game. While Bosh averages 18.2 points and 8.1 rebounds a night.

The 'Super Friends' combination has "clicked" so far this season, but critics and doubters' voices will only get louder if the Heat fall short of the NBA Finals this year.
