For decades the Los Angeles Lakers have been the measuring stick for NBA franchises. But eventually everything that is on top will fall to the bottom and that may have happened to the Lakers Thursday night.
Last year around the time of the Super Bowl, the Miami Heat kicked it into high gear and ran off 27 straight wins that helped launch a second straight run to the NBA championship. History may be starting to repeat itself this season.

Former NBA player Lamar Odom pleaded no contest Monday to a drunken driving charge and accepted a sentence of three years’ probation and three months of alcohol abuse treatment.

LeBron James scored 30 points in another efficient performance, Dwyane Wade scored 20 and the Miami Heat dominated the middle two quarters on the way to an easy 111-89 win over the Los Angeles Clippers on Friday night.

LeBron James scored 32 points, Dwyane Wade added 31 points and eight assists, and the Miami Heat held off the Houston Rockets 114-108 on Wednesday night.
The Miami Heat’s road woes continued Wednesday night in Los Angeles when the team lost to the Clippers 107-100 in a game that wasn’t that close.
