No Heat

March is HUGE for basketball. March Madness (I'll get to that in a later post if you are lost with it) is coming up, the NBA is starting to intensify - teams are gaining or losing confidence with their playoffs hopes, and fans really start to get rilled up.

The Miami Heat is an NBA team with a lot of potential but are stuck in a serious rut. They are home to major ballers like LeBron James, Dwyane Wade & Chris Bosh, but these tall dudes aren't pulling out W's. The Heat lost their 5th straight game last night to the Portland Trail Blazers, and the team is seriously confused.

The crazy thing about Miami is earlier this season these boys had a 12 game winning streak and were killing it. They remain high up in their conference standings, but they'll need to figure things out ASAP if they want to keep it that way. 

Next up for the Heat - the two-time defending champs, the Los Angeles Lakers. They will be playing in Miami tomorrow, giving the Heat home field advantage, which can't hurt. The Lakers are coming in looking to put the Heat's losing streak to a number six and Miami will be giving it their all to take down Kobe and his gang. Whose colors will you be sporting?

Game is on Thursday (ideal night for Happy Hour!) at 7:00 pm ET* - don't miss it.

P.S. I'm going to start adding a main point at the end of each post - summarizing the post in a nutshell. It's called the "Cosmo Clue" - props to my baby bro for this cute little slogan. Use it as a way to out shine your jock-of-a-brother, to seriously impress your old man, or to pick up babes at a bar. (I better be invited to any weddings that happen as a result of this possible convo starter.)

Cosmo Clue:
The Miami Heat has lost 5 games in a row, after having a 12 game winning streak earlier this season.
