The 27-game winning streak is a thing of the past and the Eastern Conference's best record is clinched. There's only one order of regular-season business left for the Miami Heat.
That's getting the NBA's best overall record.
And the Heat could go a long way toward wrapping that up in San Antonio on Sunday night.
The Heat have a two-game lead over the Spurs with 10 games remaining for both teams. A win on Sunday would give Miami a three-game edge and the head-to-head tiebreaker if the clubs finish the regular season with identical records.
Of course, winning in San Antonio is never easy for visitors. Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh are both in their 10th NBA season, but they've won there only once in that span.

Chris Bosh made the right shot at the right time as the Miami Heat defeated the San Antonio Spurs 88-86.
Miami did it without LeBron James and Dwyane Wade who sat this one out.
Bosh said that every member of the Heat can step up and get it done. “We are the defending champs no matter who we put out there,” Bosh said. “We are still the Miami Heat. We believe in ourselves....
No LeBron, no Wade, no problem for the Heat who were carried by Chris Bosh’s 23-point, 9-rebound and 3-assist performance Sunday including this game-winning three-pointer to give Miami the 88-86 victory in San Antonio.

Despite the Miami Heat having three players sitting due to injuries – LeBron James, Dwyane Wade, and Mario Chalmers – against the San Antonio Spurs Sunday evening, Miami would still squeak out a win, 98-96. It was none other than Chris Bosh, who was wide open at the top of the arc, than would sink in the [...]The post Chris Bosh’s Game-Winner Vs. San Antonio Spurs (Video...
No LeBron and Wade? No problem. The third of the Big 3, Chris Bosh, buried a game-winning three-pointer against the San Antonio Spurs.
Miami Heat forward LeBron James said Friday that he doesn't care what other people think about the comments he made over the hard intentional fouls he encountered Wednesday night. "I actually

If most of your basketball viewing lately has involved the NCAA Tournament, where coaches love to create the impression that there is nobody on the floor more important than them, the end of Sunday’s game between the Heat and Spurs probably looked a little strange.
With less than 10 seconds to go and the Heat trailing by one, Miami coach Erik Spoelstra stood on the sideline, hands...
Erik Spoelstra nearly pulled off the perfect April Fool's joke on Gregg Popovich Sunday night, it's just too bad that the game between the San Antonio Spurs and Miami Heat happened one day too early.
Five months after Popovich famously sent home Tim Duncan, Manu Ginobili and Tony Parker on a Southwest Airlines flight out of Orlando and "rested" his star players...
Take heart, Heat. Look out, NBA.
When the Los Angeles Lakers' 33-game winning streak ended, they hit a bit of a lull before rolling through the playoffs and winning the NBA title.
That scenario likely would suit Miami just fine since the defending champions have said all along they were focused on repeating more than breaking a record.
Dwyane Wade even sounded relieved Miami...
SAN ANTONIO (AP) -- Chris Bosh scored 23 points, including a winning 3-pointer with 1.9 seconds remaining, and the Miami Heat beat the San Antonio Spurs 88-86 on Sunday night with LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and Mario Chalmers sitting out due to injuries.

Their winning streak finally over, the Miami Heat did on Thursday what they had planned to do all along.
They took the day off.
While the circus atmosphere around the team may slow down now - until the playoffs start, anyway - the way the reigning NBA champions go about their business over the final 11 games of the regular season probably will not. Miami's epic, historic, sometimes...
Back in the fall of 2009 I had the opportunity to do a feature story on then Seminoles star (and highly recruited McDonalds All-American) Chris Singleton. Sunshine State hoops was not what it is today, and the thought of LeBron James, Dwyane Wade, and Chris Bosh on the same team wasn’t just a pipe dream, it wasn’t even conceivable. FSU was in the middle of another...
