Phoenix comes to Miami looking to extend winning streak

The Miami Heat have had their struggles this season, but they have done a good job of keeping those struggles away from home. The Heat have lost just two of their twenty one games at the AAA this season, and are currently boasting a 14-game home winning streak. However, if they want to keep that streak going they'll have to beat a Phoenix Suns teams playing arguably their best ball of the season.

The Suns have had a hard time getting things going during the season, but lately have seemed to figure things out. After losing four straight games in mid-February to drop their record to 12-19, Phoenix has won eleven of their last fourteen and is above .500 for the first time this season after beating Houston on Sunday.

Now the Suns head into Miami on a season-high four game winning streak, but certainly have their work cut out for them in a Miami Heat team that plays their best basketball in front of their home fans. It will hopefully be a good game, featuring a Heat team trying to get back on top of the Eastern Conference and a Suns team looking to claim the 8th seed in the West. They currently sit a half-game behind 8th place Houston.
