MIAMI (AP) - Miami Heat president Pat Riley has a message for all the Miami Heat fans who are already looking ahead to the playoffs and a chance for a third straight NBA championship.
Riley says that ''before everybody gets excited, we got another 24 or 25 games.''
The Heat (42-14) will head into Monday's home game against Charlotte winners of seven straight and 10 of 11. But with the playoffs still seven weeks away, Riley says Sunday during a Heat charity function that the races for home-court advantage are ''not an objective.''
Riley says the objective is to ''stay on track with the defense and the rebounding and I think we'll be OK.''
