Hot Points: All-Star Breaking Point

February 21, 2011

  • With the East falling to the West in the 2011 NBA All-Star Game, focus now shifts to the remainder of the regular season for the Miami Heat with 26 games left to go.
  • The Heat represented well in All-Star weekend with James Jones bringing home another 3-point contest trophy to Miami and LeBron James recording the 2nd triple-double in All-Star Game history.  
  • Miami's Big Trio combined for 57 of the East's 143 points, with James leading the team in points, rebounds and assists.
  • A brief scare for Heat fans when Dwyane Wade tweaked his ankle during the All-Star Game proved to be just that -- nothing more than a scare. Wade says he's fine and is expected to play next game.
  • The Heat head back to their home court Tuesday night to play against the Sacramento Kings, beginning the final stretch of the NBA season. 
  • The first half of that final stretch won't be an easy one as 12 of Miami's next 14 games are against teams with an above .500 record. That includes the Chicago Bulls (twice), New York Knicks, Orlando Magic, San Antonio Spurs (twice), Portland Trailblazers, Los Angeles Lakers, Memphis Grizzlies, Oklahoma City Thunder, Atlanta Hawks and Denver Nuggets.
