The Heat's win Sunday afternoon did more than put them a half-game up on the New York Knicks, it also meant coach Erik Spoelstra was the recipient of a special honor.
Spoelstra will coach the Eastern Conference All-Stars on Feb. 17, the NBA announced after the Heat beat Toronto 100-85 Sunday.
It will be Spoelstra's first appearance as a head coach in the NBA All-Star Game. He was an assistant for Stan Van Gundy in the 2005 game.
Spoelstra has won the NBA Coach of the Month award three times in his career, and his teams have made the postseason in each of his four seasons with the Heat.

Final Score: Kings: 81 Knicks: 120
Tonight the Knicks were able to extract some revenge from earlier in the season when they lost in Sacramento on a buzzer beater by blowing the Kings out of the Garden tonight. The game got off to a slow start, as the starters just did not have it in the beginning; it was a different story once the bench got into the game...
Twenty-five-point games aren’t really anything unusual from JR Smith. He’s had seven of them this season and probably a hundred in his career. Plus the Knicks played the Kings on Saturday. If you don’t drop 25 on the Kings then you basically aren’t an offensive player of any consequence.
So, why exactly am I presenting you with the news that JR Smith scored 25 points...

Tweet With Rajon Rondo’s torn ACL removing him from the NBA All-Star game, Brook Lopez was recently announced as his replacement on the roster. However, what has yet to be addressed is who will take Rondo’s spot in the starting lineup for the Eastern Conference. Many people believed that Cavs guard Kyrie Irving was the [...]
Take a look back at Mount Carmel High (Ill.) junior defensive end Enoch Smith Jr., in the 8A State Championship game in Champaign.
James White has always been a tremendous dunker. Hardcore NBA fans are well aware of his ridiculous hops and would love to see him in the dunk contest. According to the Twitter feed of Miami Herald’s Heat beat writer:

After spending plenty of time on the road the last few weeks, the Miami Heat will likely be happy to return home on Monday.
That's when they will open a five-game homestand against the slumping Charlotte Bobcats, who will try to end a three-game losing streak after dealing with a scary injury in its last defeat.
Miami, which already defeated Charlotte 105-92 on Dec. 26, has...
