Much has been made of the Miami Heat's inability to beat teams with winning records on the road.
If they can't find a way Sunday, it might not bode well for their chances of making a run for the championship.
In a potential first-round playoff series preview, the Heat again hope to shake their recent road woes in a matinee against a New York Knicks team looking to reel off a 10th straight victory at Madison Square Garden.
Miami (41-17) bounced back from a 96-86 overtime loss in Chicago on Thursday with an easy 105-82 victory over woeful Charlotte a night later. LeBron James had 19 points and nine assists and got to rest the fourth quarter, while Dwyane Wade sat out the game with a sprained right ankle. Wade is expected to play Sunday.
"It was important for us to get better tonight and get a win," James said.
Although Miami got back in the win column, it might not have entirely removed the sting from the defeat at the United Center.
That loss essentially locke...
BEST OF MAXIM
MIAMI- Just because the Miami Heat beat up on the worst team in maybe the history of the NBA does not mean they are back on the winning track.
Since the All-Star break, for the most part when they have faced championship caliber teams they have folded.
Yes, the hold victories over the Mavericks and the Thunder. But the Thunder also beat them like a drum during this same time frame...
Dwyane Wade is a pretty fashion-conscious athlete, even if his efforts have been failures in the eyes of the LBS fashion police. After scoring 28 points in the Heat’s 93-85 win over the Knicks in New York on Sunday, Wade was interviewed by ABC’s Lisa Salters. The interview yielded very little information, but it did provide one amusing moment. After the interview concluded,...

LeBron James scored Miami's final 17 points in a furious one-man rally, finishing with 37 as the Heat pulled out a 101-98 victory over the New Jersey Nets on Monday night.
In a game the Heat never led until the final 51 seconds, James willed them to their 10th straight victory over the Nets. With Dwyane Wade resting, James scored those 17 points over the last 4:48.
It was understandable why fans in Yankee Stadium, Sunday night, booed Miami Heat star Dwyane Wade -- after him and his team beat the New York Knicks earlier in the day 93-85 -- but fans also began booing their "hometown favorite" newly signed backup QB Tim Tebow.The two -- Wade and Tebow -- were sitting in the third row during the Sunday night baseball match-up between...

Only problem was . . . the game was being played on the Nets home court.
While James had his way with the Nets down the stretch, the home town crowd at Prudential...
Dwyane Wade of the Miami Heat and New Jersey Nets point guard Deron Williams were not in uniform for Monday's game between the teams due to injuries.
Wade was given the night off to rest his right ankle, which has given him problems throughout the season. The Heat are 11-1 this year without Wade in the starting lineup.

Miami is 11...
Tim Tebow got a chilly reception from New York fans, who booed the quarterback when a camera caught him at the Yankees-Angels game on Sunday night.
A few hours after beating the Knicks at Madison Square Garden Sunday, Dwyane Wade made his way to Yankee Stadium to watch the Yankees play the Angels. He was seated a row behind Tim Tebow (and later moved up a row to sit next to Tebow), and ESPN flashed to the two of them having a conversation during the second inning. Wade was apparently booed when he was shown on the big screen...
From ESPN New York:Tim Tebow has work to do if he's going to win over New York sports fans.
The new backup quarterback for the Jets was booed at Yankee Stadium on Sunday night when he was shown on the giant video board -- even though he was wearing a Yankees cap.
Sitting in the third row next to the Los Angeles Angels dugout, Tebow cracked a smile and acknowledged the...
Kareem Abdul-Jabbar is a wise man who commands respect much like a Supreme Court justice.
With that in mind, let Abdul-Jabbar give the majority opinion on who should be the NBAs Most Valuable Player this season.
I think that this years MVP award will end up in the hands of Kevin Durant, Abdul-Jabbar said of the Oklahoma City forward. Durant is my choice as front-runner due to the...
