View Full Version : The Miami Heat have won 22 of their last 23 games

The Heat have won 22 of their last 23 games, with a last seconds loss vs. the Mavericks. During that streak they've killed the Lakers, Hawks, Jazz, Hornets, Knicks (2) and the Blazers. And they already beat the Magic quite easily when they were beyond mediocre in the beginning of the season.

Can anybody really beat this team in the playoffs? This is not the Cleveland Cavaliers of the past few years. It's not LeBron and a bunch of scrubs, as evidenced by the Cavaliers now horrid 8-29 record without him. It's megastars - Wade and LeBron are becoming the incredible duo that everybody though they'd be, like Jordan and Pippen.

I don't think there's anyway that it won't be a breeze for them to the championship. The young endurance of their three stars will outlast the Celtics. Beyond that, they just have so much talent -- and now, chemistry.

I want the Knicks to win the championship, but if they don't, I want the Heat to win, just to show everybody that constructing a big three like that is pretty much an automatic championship and possibly laying a blueprint for a new NBA, one that is dominated by a few teams with big stars and one that small market teams aren't going to have much chance.

I always thought it was ridiculous when people said LeBron, Wade and Bosh wouldn't work. It didn't work for 17 games. But now they are playing at a ridiculous level. When watching Knicks-Heat, it was just something not seen in this era. Everytime the Knicks tried to get a stop (and they were playing decent defense), one of the Miami Big Three just kept scoring. If it wasn't LeBron, it was Wade. If It wasn't Bosh, it was LeBron. There's just no stopping them, especially when Miller and Haslem are back at full health.

I don't think it's unrealistic to say this team will win 6 or 7 championships, unless some teams smarten up and build big 3's of their own.

They beat the Magic before all the trades they made and still havn't beat the Celtics this season, they need to beat those two teams first. IMO

I do believe they can beat this new look Magic team but i'm not sure about the Celtics yet

there's so much wrong with this: how can a Knick fan cheer for the Heat. i guess the new era of the NBA has begun.

the Heat are on a roll right now..they have "found themselves" by now but they won't easily march through to the finals without facing adversity...as of right now, Orlando and Boston can beat them in a 7 game series simply by looking at how these teams match up. beyond that i think the heat will be the best team in the east for years to come.

And they definitely have taken to being the villains. Lebron is turining into Darth Vader right before our eyes, seems to be fueled by all the rage and hate aimed towards that team. IMO this makes for a better NBA when there is a large dragon to slay.

Pat Riley (Emperor): "It was too late Lebron, there was nothing we could do. Delonte West did your Moms a whole bunch of times........."

LBJ (Darth Vader): NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!

-This doesn't belong in the NBA forum.

-You can't "almost" win 23 straight games. Either they did or they didn't. A loss is a loss.

-Dominance in the regular season doesn't equal dominance in the post season. Example: LeBron's Cavs.

-They still haven't beat the Celtics. It doesn't matter how many teams that they beat that AREN'T the Celtics...they are going to have to beat them sometime if they want to get anywhere. I'd rather see a thread made saying that they have beat Boston than seeing a thread saying that they have won ALMOST 23 straight.

This isnt your average, run of the mill team on a good stretch. This three very talented players developing cohesion and fine tuning their games to play alongside eachother. As we get to the postseason they will play even better together, with the addtion of Haslem and Miller's PT increasing, they will be even more menacing.

Orlando and Boston have to get thru Miami just as much as we need to get through them. Point being, it going to be a great playoffs in the East this year.

Is that a serious question? I don't care how good you look in the regular season, the playoffs are a different story. With both teams at 100%, Boston will take a gigantic green poop on them. If the Celtics are undermanned due to injury and the Heat happen to make it to the Finals because of it, they don't have what it takes to get by a healthy Lakers team.

Either way, expect the Heat's year to end with LeBron (and all his talents) walking off the court a loser, again.

With both teams at 100%, Boston will have to work their ***** off to beat Miami in a seven game series and vice versa. Should the Heat beat Boston, they'll have to work to beat the Lakers in the Finals also because as you say, the playoffs are a different story.

4. Who cares right now? Like its been said, they have not beat the Celtics yet. They haven't played in the playoffs together yet. Regular season does not mean much.

5. They have a lack of depth in the front court. Teams like Boston (Perkins when he gets back, KG, Shaq, Big Baby) and the Lakers (Bynum who is finally starting to get healthy, Pau, and Odom) are stacked at those positions.

Just like I said to the other poster: Miller does not have NEARLY as big of an impact as Perkins, and let's not forget that Boston has been missing Garnett, Rondo, West, Shaq, and J.O. in spurts.

It is not outlandish to say that the Heat have very little chance against Boston considering the Celtics 1) took them behind the woodshed in their first two meetings, and 2) have been to the Finals two of the past three years (and it likely would have been three straight had Garnett been healthy in '09) and know what it takes to win a playoff series.

Miami has not even played ONE playoff game as a unit yet. Until they do, I'm giving them very little chance of beating the Celtics, a bigger, deeper, and much more versatile team, in a seven-game series.

The Heat have won 22 of their last 23 games, with a last seconds loss vs. the Mavericks. During that streak they've killed the Lakers, Hawks, Jazz, Hornets, Knicks (2) and the Blazers. And they already beat the Magic quite easily when they were beyond mediocre in the beginning of the season.

Can anybody really beat this team in the playoffs? This is not the Cleveland Cavaliers of the past few years. It's not LeBron and a bunch of scrubs, as evidenced by the Cavaliers now horrid 8-29 record without him. It's megastars - Wade and LeBron are becoming the incredible duo that everybody though they'd be, like Jordan and Pippen.

I don't think there's anyway that it won't be a breeze for them to the championship. The young endurance of their three stars will outlast the Celtics. Beyond that, they just have so much talent -- and now, chemistry.

I want the Knicks to win the championship, but if they don't, I want the Heat to win, just to show everybody that constructing a big three like that is pretty much an automatic championship and possibly laying a blueprint for a new NBA, one that is dominated by a few teams with big stars and one that small market teams aren't going to have much chance.

I always thought it was ridiculous when people said LeBron, Wade and Bosh wouldn't work. It didn't work for 17 games. But now they are playing at a ridiculous level. When watching Knicks-Heat, it was just something not seen in this era. Everytime the Knicks tried to get a stop (and they were playing decent defense), one of the Miami Big Three just kept scoring. If it wasn't LeBron, it was Wade. If It wasn't Bosh, it was LeBron. There's just no stopping them, especially when Miller and Haslem are back at full health.

I don't think it's unrealistic to say this team will win 6 or 7 championships, unless some teams smarten up and build big 3's of their own.

They beat the Magic on the day of their biggest and most anticipated home opener of all time, not to mention that DH was in foul trouble the entire game. What you are failing to recognize is that the Magic also beat them before the trade and DH had his way with that weak front line.

The Lakers are the only legit contender that they have beaten, but they are also a team that was blown out 4 games straight by mediocre teams and the Heat, so that one isn't that impressive.

Back to the Heat, yea they have won games, but they have also won a few in OT against mediocre teams and haven't really beat a contender and beat up on some garbage teams, just what Lebron did in CLeveland. I hate to break it to you, but the Knicks aren't really known for their defense.

I am more impressed with the Magic's 9 game win streak since it includes wins over the Spurs and Celtics(2 real contenders) back to back games, the Mavs(No Dirk though) and the Knicks who they blew out and let come back late, but still controlled the game or the Spurs start to the season in which they have dominated or the fact that the Celtics have been so dominate with the injuries they have.

Not to mention that BOSTON HAS ABSOLUTELY BEAT THE HEAT DOWN AND THE HEAT's ONLY HAVE 2 WINS OVER ACTUAL CONTENDERS (THE MAGIC WHO ALSO BEAT THE HEAT AND THE LAKERS WHO WERE GETTING BEAT BY EVERYBODY AT THE TIME) SO I DON'T REALLY KNOW WHAT YOU ARE TALKING ABOUT. YEA IT'S A NICE STREAK, BUT IT'S ALSO BEEN THE EASIEST SCHEDULE OUT THERE.

Just like I said to the other poster: Miller does not have NEARLY as big of an impact as Perkins, and let's not forget that Boston has been missing Garnett, Rondo, West, Shaq, and J.O. in spurts.

It is not outlandish to say that the Heat have very little chance against Boston considering the Celtics 1) took them behind the woodshed in their first two meetings, and 2) have been to the Finals two of the past three years (and it likely would have been three straight had Garnett been healthy in '09) and know what it takes to win a playoff series.

Miami has not even played ONE playoff game as a unit yet. Until they do, I'm giving them very little chance of beating the Celtics, a bigger, deeper, and much more versatile team, in a seven-game series.
You can't say Miller doesn't have as big of an impact as Kendrick when he hasn't even gotten consistent mintues. I've been killing Spo for not playing him, bt at the same time I can't blame him because we're winning. Same goes for Perkins, he hasn't even played this year, but at least he knows how Boston runs offense, so it's a pretty seamless transition for him.

Fact of the matter is, Boston will have just as tough a time with Miami as Miami will have with Boston. Nuff said.

i think they still need a PG and center who can run with wade and bron but lastnite game was great showing from bron i never thought he scored that many point till after the game that greatness both wade and bron score can score 40 points by taking just 15-20 shots..i would like see kobe do that instead of chucking up 30 -35 shot just to score 30

Well, Miller is a nice piece for the Heat, but I just don't think you can compare the impact he has on the game to Perkins', as Perkins is the second best low-post defender in the league behind Howard.

Look; don't get it twisted. I'm not saying the Celtics would walk all over the Heat, but I would be very, very shocked if they didn't beat them should they meet in the postseason.

They beat the Magic on the day of their biggest and most anticipated home opener of all time, not to mention that DH was in foul trouble the entire game. What you are failing to recognize is that the Magic also beat them before the trade and DH had his way with that weak front line.

The Lakers are the only legit contender that they have beaten, but they are also a team that was blown out 4 games straight by mediocre teams and the Heat, so that one isn't that impressive.

Back to the Heat, yea they have won games, but they have also won a few in OT against mediocre teams and haven't really beat a contender and beat up on some garbage teams, just what Lebron did in CLeveland. I hate to break it to you, but the Knicks aren't really known for their defense.

I am more impressed with the Magic's 9 game win streak since it includes wins over the Spurs and Celtics(2 real contenders) back to back games, the Mavs(No Dirk though) and the Knicks who they blew out and let come back late, but still controlled the game or the Spurs start to the season in which they have dominated or the fact that the Celtics have been so dominate with the injuries they have.

Not to mention that BOSTON HAS ABSOLUTELY BEAT THE HEAT DOWN AND THE HEAT's ONLY HAVE 2 WINS OVER ACTUAL CONTENDERS (THE MAGIC WHO ALSO BEAT THE HEAT AND THE LAKERS WHO WERE GETTING BEAT BY EVERYBODY AT THE TIME) SO I DON'T REALLY KNOW WHAT YOU ARE TALKING ABOUT. YEA IT'S A NICE STREAK, BUT IT'S ALSO BEEN THE EASIEST SCHEDULE OUT THERE.
So many things wrong here.

1) Saying the Lakers weren't playing well at the time the Heat beat them is the weakest argument I've ever heard. We beat them at full strength on their home floor, that's reality.

2) Part of your argument was saying that Orlando beat the knicks. OK, well, so did Miami, twice in fact. BTW, Orlando has yet to play us with their new pieces and they don't have the size outside of Howard they had before, and their perimeter D is laughable, sorry.

3) Portland at home could beat anybody in the league, granted Brandon Roy's hurt, and they came in on a hot home winning streak and Miami beat them in OT.

4) Orlando's streak is indeed impressive. But if you're going to use injuries as an excuse, Boston didn't have Rondo.

5) Boston is really the only team I'm fearing right now in the east, but, again, Boston is going to have trouble with Miami's speed and athleticism, like Miami will have to deal with Boston's size. It's about using your advantages to the fullest. That;s how you win in the playoffs

We heard this same exact talk about the Celtics last season, and they then went on to steamroll through the East and were a few minutes away from winning another title. Until the Lakers get dethroned in the playoffs, they are still the favorite out West.

The Heat have won 22 of their last 23 games, with a last seconds loss vs. the Mavericks. During that streak they've killed the Lakers, Hawks, Jazz, Hornets, Knicks (2) and the Blazers. And they already beat the Magic quite easily when they were beyond mediocre in the beginning of the season.

Can anybody really beat this team in the playoffs? This is not the Cleveland Cavaliers of the past few years. It's not LeBron and a bunch of scrubs, as evidenced by the Cavaliers now horrid 8-29 record without him. It's megastars - Wade and LeBron are becoming the incredible duo that everybody though they'd be, like Jordan and Pippen.

I don't think there's anyway that it won't be a breeze for them to the championship. The young endurance of their three stars will outlast the Celtics. Beyond that, they just have so much talent -- and now, chemistry.

I want the Knicks to win the championship, but if they don't, I want the Heat to win, just to show everybody that constructing a big three like that is pretty much an automatic championship and possibly laying a blueprint for a new NBA, one that is dominated by a few teams with big stars and one that small market teams aren't going to have much chance.
I always thought it was ridiculous when people said LeBron, Wade and Bosh wouldn't work. It didn't work for 17 games. But now they are playing at a ridiculous level. When watching Knicks-Heat, it was just something not seen in this era. Everytime the Knicks tried to get a stop (and they were playing decent defense), one of the Miami Big Three just kept scoring. If it wasn't LeBron, it was Wade. If It wasn't Bosh, it was LeBron. There's just no stopping them, especially when Miller and Haslem are back at full health.

I don't think it's unrealistic to say this team will win 6 or 7 championships, unless some teams smarten up and build big 3's of their own.

Are you suggesting that this is a desirable future for you as an NBA fan? That it would be good for the game?

I am not a big fan of the way Miami runs their offense. Yes Lebron uses Wade and vice versa but the difficulty level on their shots are high. In other words, they don't get easy baskets often enough down the stretch against high quality teams. Bosh is more of an outside threat, he relies on his jump shot to open up his game but because his touches are limited, he doesn't have the opportunity to really expand his offense as the game goes on. He just becomes one demensional on offense. Last night, Lebron and Wade used their superstar magic to win the game, but if they did not make those difficult shots, it's Portland's game.

Defensively, they are great which is why on most nights it doesn't matter how they run their offense because it's their D that wins the game. They lead the league at protecting the paint. They are very physical and force opposing teams to get the shot they want them to take.

1. Apparently you aren't in reality; going into the XMas day game the Lakers were coming off getting blown out by the Bucks in LA(so are they the truth too???) and then they got blown out the 2 games following... losing 4 straight by like 20 a pop; so I wouldn't think that you would consider them not at top of their game.

2. The Fact that you don't think the Magic have the size outside of Howard is down right laughable considering that the Heat have no size period and don't tell me Biz Z bec the guy is a joke when it comes to size(he'stall, not big and plays like a SF)... The perimeter of the Magic VS. the Heat; Nelson lit up arroyo and is actually bigger even though arroyo is 2 inches taller(advantage Magic, Wade 6'4''JRich 6'6'', Lebron 6'8''-Turk 6'10'', that looks like the Magic have more perimeter height and length to me.... THe bottom line is that the Magic have had a total of 2 or 3 practices since the trade so I'm sure they will get better. PS, the Knicks weren't part of my argument if you read it correctly, I said they aren't a contender and they aren't.

3. A win in overtime with no Roy; if that is your big win, I would stop typing because you are embarrassing yourself.

4.Yea the Celts had no Rondo, but that hasn't stopped them from beating other teams and the Magic had just traded away half of their team for a new half; that was impressive; not to mention that KG played.

5. Obviously you are concerned about the Celts, but you are also naive to think that the Magic couldn't beat the Heat when the games are slowed down and half court offense is at a premium and so is DH... Size wins and the Magic are also in the top 5 in Defensive efficiency, even after the trade, so think again sport.

I'm just venting, but I know I speak for many others here when I say I'm tired of seeing the 'Lebron got a haircut' and 'Miami shot 55%' type of threads constantly created.

I dont know if you guys realize it, but all you're doing is making other fanbases hate Miami even more. I know the mods try to keep the hate under control, but by allowing so many pointless threads about Miami it's working against what you're trying to do.

I mean look, the Lakers just won back to back titles, and you dont see a billion threads about what kind of candy Odom likes and what college football game Kobe may or may not be attending. Things have gotten out of hand here. This thread has no place here, and especially not in the nba forum.

Miami is not better than Boston. Point blank. Period.

The funny thing is, the Celtics have not even been at full-strength for ONE GAME this season. The Heat would have very little chance against Boston in a seven-game series. The Celts are just too big and too deep. Saying it would be a "breeze" for them to win the championship is absolutely laughable.

I wouldn't go that far but I do believe the Celtics could take down the Heat. I don't think it will be as easy as you make it seem, not when Lebron and Wade are on the same team.

The Celtics are still the team to beat out East until they get taken out. The same thing that happened to the C's last year is happening to the Lakers now. Everyone is counting the Lakers out, but I'd be surprised if it wasn't L.A vs. BOS this season again.

I thought it was ridiculously ignorant when people were counting them out after 20 games...

If a team gains a new starter midseason, it takes awhile for them to gel... Add two superstar players that you're counting on for heavy production and it tests your chemistry on a whole another level....

The scary thing is that they still aren't truely showing how dominant they can be... They haven't gelled 100 % yet...

They will shatter some records in route to a couple of titles... I have zero doubt about it...

As for people who say they can't beat the Celtics or Magic in the playoffs ????

Keep smoking... It's good the NBA still has the illusion of parity in regards to some fans home teams...

In reality, if this team stays healthy, they won't be beat 4 times in a 7 game spand by any team in the NBA while they are together... Not a chance in hell...

Oh, don't get me wrong, I can not imagine a single scenario where either of those two teams beat Miami in a playoff series, but they are probably the 4th and 5th best teams in the East (maybe Atlanta is in there)...so they are more meaningful and telling than probably 80-85% of the games Miami will play this regular season.

EDIT: By the way, as a Lakers fan, I hate the Celtics about, oh, 100x more than I hate the heat. So, if I was being "blinded" by hate, wouldn't I want the Heat to win? Fact is, both Boston and the Lakers are better. The Holy Triumvirate (aka the gift from the basketball gods to us all, especially ESPN) down in Miami haven't even proven they can win a single playoff game, yet we have bandwagon Heat fans crowning them the champs already. It's annoying as hell.

absolutely not!hahahah.boston will collapse due to their age.MAGIC IS DEF NOT AS GOOD AS THE HEAT.so i can only see the heat !

And the Rockets won 22 games straight one year and where did that get them?

We're tied with the Heat despite having KG and Rondo both miss games with injuries. How would the Heat's record be if Wade and James both missed the same games that KG and Rondo did? KG and Rondo are arguably the two most important Celtics players, so take James and Wade out for some games and see how they do.

And, we don't even have Perkins or Delonte West right now.

This is cool and all but all that matters is what they do in the playoffs. This is irrelevant to them right now.

Cleavland did finish with 60+ wins the last two regular seasons and didn't accomplish anything in terms of Championships. I am not saying the Heat won't win championships but regular season dominance does not always equal NBA championship by no means. Nor a Super Bowl, Stanley Cup, or World Series title. Anything can happen in a 7 games series though.

This. You saw what happened to the Cavs last year. You may have the best record, but when it comes to the playoffs all of that is meaningless.
