Heat among best-managed NBA franchises

We ranked every front office in the NBA, and the Heat are near the top. Check back throughout the week as we break down the rankings into three categories: coaches, GMs and owners.

ESPN Stats and Information  

The Heat currently own a 1.5-game lead over the Pistons for the No. 8 seed in the East, with the Bulls a half-game back. Detroit has lost seven of eight games, yet a win over Miami on Tuesday night would clinch the head-to-head tiebreaker (Pistons lead season series 2-1 over Heat).

ESPN Stats and Information  

Johnson and Johnson – no relation – are the first Heat duo to score 20 or more points off the bench in a game in just over eight years. The last pair to achieve that feat for Miami were Michael Beasley (28 points) and Daequan Cook (27 points) on March 4, 2009 versus the Suns. (Issac Baldizon/NBAE via Getty Images)
