CLEVELAND - The Miami Heat blew into the City on Lake Erie and melted the place as they won their 24th game in a row by beating the Cleveland Cavaliers 98-95.
The Heat managed to overcome a 27 point deficit in the third quarter but showed that they mean business.
Of course LeBron James, who abandoned the Cavs several years ago, is the most hated man not only in the city of Cleveland but in the whole state of Ohio.
Sporting Chance Magazine is reporting that Boston Celtics player Kevin Garnett has consulted a Louisiana bayous voodoo woman in hopes of putting a hex on the Heat.
Garnett said that nationally known magic spell caster Madam Lottie Jo Lafayette of Lake Charles told him that the spell has been cast and that the Heat will lose when they play the Detroit Pistons on Friday, March 22.
Madam Lafayette told Garnett that she is 99.7 percent certain that Detroit will win but in the event that the Pistons do not beat the Heat then she will refund him every cent that he paid her to cast the evil spell.
In Another NBA Story. Kobe Bryant spoke with Rufus Reno of Sports Balls Illustrated Daily and told him that the rumor going around about him retiring from basketball if the Lakers do not make this year's playoffs is false. He said that it is a damn lie, just like the damn lie about the weapons of mass destruction.
