NFL free agency has South Florida sports fans buzzing.
While the Dolphins are releasing a player and revamping their team, there’s something else that is quietly happening in Miami.
The Miami Heat are playing their best basketball of the season and seem to have come together.
The Heat take on the Milwaukee Bucks Friday night, a game that could be a preview of a first-round matchup in the playoffs. Yes, playoffs.
All of a sudden, Eric Spoelstra has found a great balance with this team and rotation. The Heat’s bench has been fantastic lately.
With not many games to go, it seems like the Heat have a very good chance of grabbing a playoff spot.
Let’s not get too ahead of ourselves when thinking about the potential playoff outcome, though.
The Heat have a lot of good players. Real contenders need great players.
