Heat vow to take Bobcats seriously

Sun., April 20, 2014

Even as the two-time defending NBA champions, the Miami Heat say they aren’t overlooking any team heading into the playoffs. The Charlotte Bobcats haven’t beaten the Heat a single time since LeBron James changed addresses. But Miami isn’t expecting a cakewalk first-round series against them, either. Charlotte visits Miami in Game 1 of their Eastern Conference matchup today ( 12:30 p.m., ABC). Miami has lost only four of its last 23 games against the Bobcats, and is 15-0 in the series since James, Chris Bosh and Dwyane Wade became teammates. But the Bobcats are 20-9 since the All-Star break. – Associated Press
