1. Heat 97 Magic 96-
The Miami Heat won their 16th straight game of the season to go to 45-14 on the year, as Lebron James led the way with 26 points, Dwyane Wade followed with 24 points and Chris Bosh added 17 points, 10 rebounds, but for the second time this season, Montenegrin 22 year old young center Nikola Vucevic put up big numbers, going for 25 points, 21 rebounds, 9 offensive boards, on 11-16 FG, 3-3 FT after his 20 point, 29 rebound game VS the NBA champions earlier in the season. The Heat are the favorites to win another NBA title this year, but the ONE FLAW on the team is the BIG MAN Center spot, as the Heat go with a thinner Chris Bosh and 6' 8" Udonis Haslem at the big man spots to play with superstars LeBron James and Dwyane Wade and the 3 point shooters they put around them to finish games. The Heat also brought in 35 year old Chris Anderson and his 2000 tattoos and 40 year old Juwan Howard to try and help with front court minutes, but just imagine if the Heat had a long 7 foot big guy like Vucevic, to grab offensive rebounds to give LeBron and Wade more chances to attack the rim. Watching Vucevic do damage inside against the Heat made EUROJOHNBBALL think that if the Heat had a similar type player in the middle, it might mean lights out for the rest of the NBA for the next couple of NBA seasons and just thinking of 29 year old Greek free agent center Ioannis Bourousis on the Heat roster next season, would be the missing center to give the Heat easy inside buckets, like Vucevic had last night and Bourousis can also stick the 15 foot face-up jumper on pick and pop shots like Vucevic hit last night.  Ioannis Bourousis plays with EA7 Milano in Italy and is a free agent this summer and before the Spurs went with Tiago Splitter, they were hot after Bourousis. Sixers head coach and Olympics basketball announcer Doug Collins had nothing but praise for the Greek center at the 2008 Olympics and playing with LeBron James and Wade would mean easy buckets, because of the one on one defense Bourousis would face with LeBron, Wade, Bosh and a deep 3 point shooter being on the court with the big Greek.  Bourousis can also be a big rebound guy if he is put into a Tyson Chandler type of role, that just concetrates on grabbing the defensive and offensive rebounds, to go along with all the Bourousis offensive ability. The Heat will be tough to stop this year, but the Heat need to find help at the center spot and no other center out there reminds EUROJOHNBBALL of Nikola Vucevic more than Ioannis Bourousis and if the Heat want to keep this ride going even longer, then the Chris Anderson, Juwan Howard quick fix has to be changed into finding LeBron and Wade real help in the middle and if the Spurs were interested, then you know this 7 foot Greek Euro big guy can play.
