The Miami Heat have struggled against the Eastern Conference’s top teams.

The Heat are 0-2 against the Knicks, 0-1 against the Bulls, and 0-2 against the Pacers.

“We’re not worried about that,” LeBron James said. “We don’t put too much into losing a game or winning a game; we want to get better from those games.

“We don’t need victories versus top-four teams to prove what we’re capable of doing. We don’t need them. We’d love to have them, but we don’t need them.”

Miami currently sits atop the East with a half-game lead over the Knicks, and a 14-9 conference record.
