The Miami Heat lost another heartbreaker last night, falling to one of the worst teams in the league, the Orlando Magic.

The Heat couldn’t get their last attempt to drop as they fell 111-109. It was Miami’s 4th straight loss, which dropped them down to 29-25 on the season. It also dropped them down in the standings significantly.

It’s a tight race in the East with not much room for error at this point. The Heat was only half a game behind the Cavs for 3rd place in the East this time last week. And now after their fourth straight loss, Miami sits at number 7, only two games ahead of the 76ers who they also lost to during this slump.

Miami has squandered a golden opportunity to make a real splash in the standings with this losing streak. And now with only 4 games remaining before the All-Star break, the Heat have put themselves in a position of an uphill climb once again.
