Poor road performance raises concern for Heat
LeBron James was as usual charging at full pistons when the Miami Heat played against the Orlando Magic on Monday, but the Heat forward still feared that his team would leave the Amway Center with a sour taste in their mouth on New Year’s Eve.
While LeBron James anchored the team to a 112-110 OT win over the Orlando Magic another near triple-double performance, the Miami Heat’s road endeavors are raising growing concerns over the team’s recent performance.
The Miami Heat avoided a close third-consecutive loss on road Monday night.
“It was a must-win to end the trip and the year off the right way,” said LeBron James. “We had to figure out how to win on the road again and that was a good start.”
LeBron James has been one of the few consistent factors for the Miami Heat through this rather dismal four-game road trip.
Following the New Year’s Eve win LeBron James extended his over 20 points streak to 29 consecutive games.
LeBron James has averaged 27.5 points, 8.1 rebounds and 7.5 assists in Decembers, marking him as one of the three NBA players in NBA history to ever lock those numbers in a single month of the regular season.
