HHH GameTime Preview: Heat head to Philadelphia to take on 76ers

New, comments

Miami looked very good against the Suns last night, and they take that momentum to Philadelphia tonight to take on the 8-53 Sixers.

Game Story:

After an encouraging victory against the Phoenix Suns last night, the Miami Heat are headed to Philadelphia to face the 8-53 76ers. With Miami performing so well as of late it will be important that they don't fall victim to a trap-game scenario in these next two contests (both against Philly). It will also be interesting to see whether or not various players are rested over this two game stretch.

With Miami's strong play since the All-Star break having gone 6-2, they lead the Southeast Division by two games over the Atlanta Hawks with a chance to extend their win streak to five games if they beat Philly back-to-back.
