New, comments

Everything is rolling for LeBron James, Dwyane Wade, Chris Bosh and the Miami Heat these days. The Heat sit a top the eastern conference with a 36-14 record and sport the longest active winning streak in the NBA (7).

The NBA trade deadline is looming and with rumors swindling around Josh Smith, the Heat could have their hands full in the interior. Smith has been the face of numerous trade speculation, including the San Antonio Spurs, Milwaukee Bucks, to name a few.

"I'm not worried about any outside distractions, media, hearsay. I just try to come out and play my game and not worry about anything else." - Smith said

LeBron James has also been in the media lately, mainly stirring Jordan comparison narratives, shooting efficiency records and Kyrie Irving, 2014 hypotheticals. James doesn't seem fazed by the all the attention he's been garnering but rather is focused on continuing his stellar play into the second half of the season.

"I just go out and play my game, and that was the result of it. It didn't bother me and it didn't matter if I got it or not. ... To win is what it's all about." - James said

Miami will look to win their 8th straight tonight against the six seed Hawks. The Heat have dominated the Hawks recently, winning their last 5 contests, including the last 6 in Atlanta.
