If Chicago can't do it, then look to the Spurs. Think Tony Parker will be back by that time and they will have been off the day before. But they play @MEM the very next night so will have to see how Pop handles this one. Why this is interesting is because it was when the Spurs played at Miami last fall that Pop sent 3 starters and a key reserve home and got the franchise fined $250k for that action. So all the starters will be there this time. Just have to see how hard Pop plays them knowing they have to play @MEM the next night. But I would think the Spurs would be playing for pride in front of their home fans and for showing Miami they can be beat should they face each other again in the Finals.

Two roads diverged in a wood, and I--
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.

I don't think they will get to 33, 24 is a lot but they still have 9 to go to even tie it, won't happen.

F****** Cavs. :bang: You can't hold a 27 point lead, come on.

And as amazing as this Heat winning streak is they have 14 losses on the season, which is crazy low, but it makes the Bulls 72-10 season look even more ridiculous. I can't believe a team did that seeing what the Heat are doing now, it's like this sort of domination for an entire season.

If they can be down 27 to the Cavs and almost lose, a number of teams have a chance. Eventually the cockiness will get to the Heat and they'll coast, thinking they can come back and win in the end and they'll fail.

byron scott lost the game for my team and I apologize to you guys. As soon as he put daniel gibson and walton came on the floor the heat salivated at the opportunity and destroyed us. He kept riding them until the heat completely came back before he decided to take them out. Gibson hasnt played in months so idk why he decided to play him now and walton was having a terrible game from the first minute he was on the floor. That combined with no timeouts during the run made it easy for the heat to come back.

I'd been thinking about that bulls run too, how impressive it looks when you factor in that a team rolling like Miami is has no shot at matching what they did.

Regarding the Cavs game, they had no business being up 27 in the first place :man10:
They were playing without their best 3 players I think, and somehow they were making everything while the Heat was the direct opposite.. I knew it was only a matter of time.. Regardless of how big the deficit looked, the Cavs' being up was ALL about momentum, it was all about rythm. I knew that as soon as Miami scored a few in a row and got a few stops in a row, the Cavs would crumble. The talent disparity is just too huge, not to mention Miami's impressive ability to "turn it on" in certain stretches in both ends. First 2 and a half quarters they couldn't buy a shot, played terrible D and couldn't get a rebound, but as soon as they got a little momentum and "turned it on" then all of the sudden they were hitting 3s left and right (surround LeBron and Wade with shooters and you'll win.. It's incredible, Battier, Allen, Chalmers, Lewis, Cole, LeBron, even Wade sometimes, they all hit 3s on you), no rebounds went to the Cavs, no open shots for them, everything contested..
Gotta give them some props, but like I said, the Cavs had no business being up that much, and this was a game Miami should've been on top of from tip off.

What's really crazy is even with a 24 game winning streak they aren't even close to securing HCA for the entirety of the post-season. SAS is right on their heels

In fact the 08-09 Cavs were like even 60-13 at one point.

I don't follow or watch other teams right now except Hou, GS, and the Jazz for the playoffs implication... Heat is very impressive right now but this will bite them in the arse later. Gunning for the streak record can destroy their repeat hopes. But good luck to them :man10:

Yes as the world tunes in, these losing teams will play like wild dogs to beat them. It will make their year to beat the best team. Also the ghost of Wilt may have to take action. :man4:

San Antonio is the ONLY team that could pose a threat in their remaining schedule. They are also fighting to keep their high seeding so I doubt Popovich will give his core rest.

Those "other" teams don't have our history so let their fans laugh!
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.

Nothing wrong with that. If we quote them, they can quote us. At least that means they are reading... and paying attention. It's all good.

THey might do it, but it will take a toll on the team's freshness in the playoffs. That can raise the chances of injury.

To me it seems like Pop doesn't care about their record as long as they're top 3. Which baffles me because they lose home court in the later rounds.

Whatever floats his boat I guess.

I wouldn't be surprised if they all sat out the Miami game just to prep for the Memphis game since "they're likely to meet them in the playoffs." Umm, Miami is the team they should worry about, since that's the last stop for a ring.

And here we go again! Miami is down by 10 to the scary "Bad Boys" Detroit team. Maybe their streak will stop today. :mhihi:

Sooner or later the "luck" will run out. Before anyone jumps on the "luck" statement I am not saying Miami got lucky to win 24 in a row. I am saying that some of those wins have gotten that "one bounce" or that "roll of the rim miss." In other words I wonder what happens when the ball doesn't bounce their way? They have played with fire in several games. Could the lowly Pistons be the team? I wouldn't put money on it but also wouldn't put it in the impossible file either.

Detroit only scored 14 points in the 3rd quarter. Miami winning in the 4th. :disagree:

This heat team is just ridiculous right now. It's like, at any given time they just decide "okay, you're not scoring any more points" and that's that.
