The path to 33 might not be that daunting for Heat

continued from page 3

_ Philadelphia (26-40), April 6.

On Final Four Saturday in college basketball, the Heat could punch their ticket to a defacto championship game. This would be for No. 33, and comes against opponents who very much play the Washington Generals to Miami’s Globetrotters: Always seems to stay close, but never get it done.

Heat victory odds: Excellent.

_ Milwaukee (33-32), April 9.

It’s very likely that the Bucks and Heat will play in the first round of the East playoffs. But before that, if Miami is really going for No. 34 on this night, how fitting would it be that the Bucks are the opponent?

Jan. 9, 1972. The Bucks beat the Lakers 120-104, snapping that 33-game win streak. Does history repeat itself on April 9?

Stay tuned.
