^IF the Knicks are healthy... Age is catching up to them at the wrong time of this season. They have/had the bigs to clog the middle. San Antonio is the biggest roadblock but I think they won't take it lightly given that they are also fighting for home court advantage throughout the postseason.

Looking at their schedule it's ridiculous how many bad teams they get to play

in b4 people bring up their WC record. doesn't matter, bad teams are bad teams.

Also has any team faced less adversity than this Heat squad this season?

No major injuries at all, not a single elite team in their conference that can actually challenge them, injuries to a bunch of other players in their conference, play in a joke conference, etc

They wouldn't have even won last night if KG played. I've never seen a team catch more breaks than this annoying [Swearing is not permitted at Clublakers. You must edit this post prior to submitting.] Heat team

I don't, because Rose still isn't playing, as JMSS pointed out they seemingly catch every break. I get that you still have to win these games, but man is the road easy for a Heat team that has had to deal with no major injuries and are deeper than last season. They also have to play at the Spurs at some point, but guess what, probably no Tony Parker, how perfect.

I've been thinking the same thing. No adversity during this run. Nonetheless, Spoelstra will be a fool to challenge the record. What if Wade or LeBron goes down in a meaningless game, all for the sake of a streak, and then no title?

Last night...I could've sworn I heard chants of "Beat L.A.!' during the fourth like the crowd wants the Heat to break the record.

Hey it is only fair that the greatest to ever touch a basketball leads his team to the best run ever in this difficult league. I am sure the HOF will get all their Jersey's and shoes for the greatest team shrine. :jam2:
For what it's worth, the Lakers also clinched the Pacific Division, an achievement Bryant dismissed by saying "We don't hang divisions." No, only the big NBA championship banners are considered wall-worthy for the Lakers.

That's my biggest concern as well, but I'm not eager to see the cHeat beat the winning streak record, which they might. We'll see, it's not the end of the world if they do.

Some of the best league records are owned by former Lakers such as the 33 in a row, most points ever (KAJ) 15-1 playoff record. So no, I don't want any of those records broken by other players or other teams unless of course they're Lakers. But records are made to be broken and with a diluted league, it's almost certain to happen at some point. Life will go on I guess...

That's how great we are as a franchise. Arenas on the other side of the country are thinking about us even when we're not there.

There is one huge difference between the streaks. In 1972 the NBA consisted of 17 teams as opposed to the current 30 teams. During the Lakers' record setting streak, they played against highly talented teams night in and night out. There were very few soft parts of schedules, if at all.

Think of it in these terms: Remove the very best players from 13 of today's worst teams, delete those 13 worst teams and add those best players to the 17 best existing teams. Now go out and win 33 in a row against that.

That being said, what the Heat is accomplishing is phenomenal and they deserve all the accolades they're getting. Well, most of them, anyhow.

Hope they do break it.. Hope they win every game the rest of the season instead of resting their players like they should. They're the 1 team in either conference I just don't know if we can beat.

It's an incredibly diluted league. Stern's new CBA has watered down the decent teams, from Memphis to Okc, and look at how no team in near-contention added any impact players at the trade deadline. They're all afraid of the luxury tax.

Add to that the injuries to Rose, Melo, Bynum, Amare, and Pau, and there just isn't any competition for Miami. It makes you wonder what makes them so durable....

Can't stand the Heat but smh at people downplaying the 33 game win streak by the Lakers. For anyone to win 33 games straight is an amazing feat, Lakers or otherwise.

Just the weight of the streak itself will be the hard part for them.

I really don't have feelings one way or the other. Regular season streaks and records in general will all be broken given time.

They are playing the best ball in the league and their "stars" are playing like stars.... It won't be a cake walk but it's doable if they can keep their focus.

I agree... What the Heat have done so far is amazing... IF they break the record, it should not be downplayed with b.s. qualifiers...

Hopefully, teams will be gunning for them knowing that they have the streak within reach..


& NO... Pop will not rest his starters in their matchup with the Heat.... Too close to OKC for home court.
If he does, he's an idiot.

Did you forget the ABA? In the early 70's they were picking off some of the best talent and depleting the NBA. They had 11 teams in 72.

For example they had Rick Barry, Artis Gilmore, Dan Issel, Mel Daniels and Dr J in the ABA that year. All Hall of famers. Name one player that caliber on the Bottom 13 teams in today's league....much less 5 all time greats in their prime.

In these days the two leagues played a series of exhibition games and the ABA won more of these games over the 71-73 time frame than the NBA did. These were much more intense games than even the playoffs as each league was fighting for its very existence.

This is why I've never liked the quality of competition and dilution arguments when comparing the players today with tat era. The ABA was getting most of the top talent in the early 70's and diluting the NBA more than expansion does now. There were many fewer top caliber players to start with in those days and 28 pro teams in the two leagues combined.

23 wins in a row is impressive no matter who you play ... sure they got some breaks with opponents injuries and play in a weak Conf ... but you still got to take advantage of these opportunities...

not like a certain team who lost to the B Team of the Chawks or a Dirk less Mavs ...

Funny how history is made ... Heat would go for its 34th win a row against ... Milwaukee .

Spurs are going to beat them before though.

I'll be fine as long as they don't beat the 2001 record ... I couldn't stand "experts" saying this small ball team is better than our 2001 team ... Shaq would average 40 and 20 against Bosh, Pedophile and Haslem
