Caught the Heat/Magic game on tv. Was definitely worth it! The defending champs are just monsters. I really want to see them break the record.

Anyone nervous that Chicago could possibly end the streak?

I think both Chicago and San Antonio have the potential to end the streak.

Honestly though, if I'm a Heat fan, I'd want it to end ASAP. Records are nice, but rings are nicer. I can't shake the feeling that if the Heat breaks the record, they are going to enter the playoffs complacent and cocky, having piqued too early and get knocked out pretty early by the Bulls or Celtics or someone. I think it would be best for them to take a bit of humble pie now rather than in the playoffs. But damned if they aren't fun to watch.

Tell that to the 2007 New England Patriots. If a team piques too early, they can go into a game/series over-confident, burnt out or even just due for loss. It may sound silly, but it does happen.

Piques? lol.

But I don't see this happening to the Heat. Two completely different sports, first of all. There are way more factors and pieces at work in football that can affect a game, in basketball it's basically 7-8 guys. Furthermore, even if Miami breaks the streak, once they get win 34 they'll have 2 whole weeks to rest...and it's not like they even really need that much, or specifically, Lebron does not. D-Wade has already sat out the past two games.

The Heat know what their ultimate goal is, and with Lebron and D-Wade leading them I have complete confidence they aren't losing sight of it.

The only thing piquing around here is my interest in how many memes can be created by that LeBron interview bomb which I honestly think is one of the funniest faces I've ever seen.

I think you mean peaking by the way And I agree with Dent in that they are locked in on what they're ultimate goal is but at the same time embracing the opportunity to be a part of history while they're at it. NFL is far different in that you have 7 game playoff series in the NBA so failures can be viewed and fixed against an opponent.

Honestly, I believe The Heat are gonna end their own streak. Wade is in no rush to get back from his sore knee and Bosh has been eating more minutes on the bench as of late (giving substitutes playing time). Miami seems to be preparing for the playoffs. Since The Celtics' game, it's been the LeBron James show -- he's been the biggest reason why the streak has continued.

I bet D-Wade plays tomorrow lol.

Lebron was the catalyst for the streak in the first place (those 6 games of 60%+ shooting started it all) and pretty much carried the team through this for all of February, then D-Wade picked it up in the first two weeks of March, now Lebron is carrying the team again.

Football is sudden death games though. And I remember reading a stat that teams that have won 18+ games in a row during the regular season went on to win the 'chip the vast majority of the time (the Rockets and Clippers were two of the exceptions I remember).

Miami won't lose 4 games to anybody in the east in a series, I doubt any team pushes them past 6 even.

Most people would've said that, this time last year too. The fact is, it only takes one injury to completely derail a team. We almost saw that happen in that Indiana series with Bosh, not to mention Wade hobbling around for a good portion of the Playoffs.

I think everything considered, the Heat have been remarkably healthy all year, at least in relation to Boston, Indiana, Chicago or NY. And I'm not saying anything will happen, I actually hope it doesn't, it robs the game of true competition IMO. But an injury is a very real possibility. And as great as Lebron is, in the postseason, he knows better than anybody a singular effort, superhuman or not, won't be enough to get it done...

Exactly, it's so obvious he's still the same douchebag, but because he's winning nobody cares.
