Cleveland Cavaliers have hit top gear of late, where they enjoy a 9-1 record in their last 10 games. So, when they face Miami Heat later tonight, they would be eager to keep the same momentum, which has helped them become prolific of late.
But, the scene is not very rosy for the Heats, as they have lost six of their last 10 games.
Despite winning their previous game, Heats are aware of the Cavs, who have looked great recently, hence could prove to be a tough ask for the Heats.
The Heats played out a good game against New York Knicks in their last encounter with the score reading 109 to 95.
It was their point guards, which put up a splendid display with Mario Chalmers scoring 18 points and Norris Cole 12 points. To add to it, Shabazz Napier also looked great during the game.
But, as usual, Chris Bosh looked amazing for the Heats, who sang praises for Heats' point guards.
"The point guards were fantastic tonight. If they play well — I don't want to put pressure on them — we're tough to beat," Miami Herald quoted him as saying.
Bosh has been positive about their teams performance, as he also added, "It was a good night; we really started to play our style," Bosh said. "As tough as it's been this year, we always come to play. ... That's what I've loved about this group."
But, they would be pitted against Cavs, who have looked dangerous with their key players firing on all cylinders.
Though, Cleveland might not have taken the league by storm in the initial stages, they are peaking at the right time and are scaring opponents with their performances.
With players such as Kyrie Irving, LeBron James and Kevin Love on top form, they easily defeated LA Lakers 120 to 105 in their last game.
The Cavs' trio have been in rocking form during the season where Irving averages 21.9 points per game, Kevin Love with 17.1 points and James has been sensational in all the matches he played, as he averages 26 points per game.
These stats draw a picture of a well-settled side, who would be one of the favourites to win the NBA title, once the Playoff starts.
If these players fire tonight against the Heats as well, Miami would feace the real 'heat.'
But, Cavs cannot take their Playoff place for granted as well, as they still lie on the fifth position of the Eastern Conference.
Basketball fans would keep a close tab on the clash of two players, especially Chris Bosh and LeBron James, who have both looked in prime form.
