Look ahead

Yes, the Nets game is a big game because the Heat wants to beat a quality team on the road and wants to distinguish itself as, at least, the clear No. 2 team in the East.
But if you look past this game, it could be the start of so much more.
If the Heat has the ability to beat the Nets on the road, it could also be capable of beating the Mavericks on the road next week. Then, there's a home game against the Pistons next Sunday. All three of those games will be treated as major challenges, and you know Riley will do everything to have them take that challenge.

OK, so look at the schedule past the Pistons. There's nothing there until the Heat plays the Pistons again on March 22.
After the PIstons next Sunday, it goes like this: Magic, Magic, Knicks, Sonics, Raptors, Celtics, Hawks, Bobcats, Wizards, Warriors, Cavaliers, Jazz, Celtics, Bulls, Knicks and Timberwolves. And of those games, the only road game that would be considered a decent challenge to the Heat is at Chicago.

Just pointing out the possibilities.
