The Miami Heat have been overtaken by the Chicago Bulls for the best record in the NBA Eastern Conference and they have a chance to tie up their records heading to the NBA All-Star Weekend. This team is coming off from a tough loss that snapped their five-game winning streak. That was against the Dallas Mavericks with the final score settling at 99-107. Jimmy Butler did his best providing the team with 29 points, 10 rebounds and three assists while Ban Adebayo controlled the paint with 21 points, 12 rebounds and two blocks. The Heat played without dynamic guard Tyler Herro during the loss.

It has been a tough stretch for the Charlotte Hornets as they have only won once in their last nine matches.
