    Pacers and Spurs win and the Heat lose. Nice. Looking forward to seeing the Spurs play the Clippers on Friday night.

    @SportsCenter: 27 straight wins

    13 straight road wins

    2nd-longest streak in NBA history

    Good run, @MiamiHEAT



    I still don't think it was that impressive the beat a lot of crappy teams.

    It's impressive. The odds of winning that many in a row, despite the competition (particularly when, at some point, every team started giving the Heat their best effort..and even crappy teams can have fantastic nights..) are extremely low. They showed an incredible amount of consistency.

    That said, I'm not ready to declare them champs yet. Not that they aren't the favorite..but I don't think this streak makes them automatically unbeatable in the playoffs.

    Hahahaha you're like a parody of yourself at this point.

    Even if they had played the dregs of league every game to win 27 of them in a row is impressive. Nevermind that included in that streak were games home against the Clippers, Lakers, Grizzlies, and Pacers and road games against the Thunder, Hawks, Bulls, Knicks, and Celtics.

    Yeah let's take a look at this amazing winning streak:

    Against the Raptors; unimpressive, crappy team.

    Against the Bobcats: unimpressive, 2nd worst in the NBA.

    Against the Rockets: OK win.

    Against the Clippers: first meaningful win so far at this point.

    Against the Lakers: not impressed.

    Against Portland: meh.

    OKC: Great win.

    Atlanta: OK win, not a huge win either.

    Chicago: Good win.

    Sixers: meh.

    Cavs: meh.

    Kings: they went to overtime against them lol.

    Memphis: Great win.

    Knicks: Good win.

    Wolves: unimpressive.

    Orlando: meh.

    Sixers: meh.

    Pacers: great win.

    Hawks: OK

    Sixers: more free wins.

    Bucks: Ok.

    Raptors: meh.

    Celtics: Ok win, Boston didn't have KG.

    Cavs: again.

    Pistons: lol

    Bobcats: ha

    Magic: meh

    and Bulls: without Noah, Bellineli and Hamilton.


    So out of 27 games they won like 8/9 meaningful games? you might me impressed but I'm not

    Ok, if 27 straight isn't impressive, when a 3rd of those games were what you'd consider "meaningful games," what the hell kind of win streak would be impressive?

    The have the best player in the world together with two other great pieces why should I be impressed? just with Lebron by himself they should have been able to destroy 19 of those teams including Chicago yesterday without a problem.

    Not reason to overreact if you think the win streak was impressive good for you.

    You can't look at it team by team. Things happen over the course of a season that make it very difficult to win that many games in a row. If the Heat beat the Cavs 30 times in a row that would still be impressive. It's the NBA, they are all pros.

    How can it not be impressive?

    Let's just list off all the amazing teams that never even sniffed this record. Miami got within throwing distance of a 40+ year old record. That is always impressive.

    The Kobe/Shaq Lakers had a 19 game winning streak.

    The Jordan Bulls got to 18. One time.

    I mean there's only about 25 teams in NBA history that have won more than 15 games in a row.

    And now only two that have crossed over the 25 game barrier.

    My thing is that not only they beat a bunch of crappy teams(some are already in tanking mode by the way) but the good teams they beat didn't have some of their best players.

    I really am finding it interesting that this is your take on it. It sheds some light on everything else you post on here, you just have crazy high expectations for everything. I would hate to be the waiter that messed up your order at a restaurant

    I think the streak was impressive, but it would not be as impressive as the Lakers one because of the level of competition. I'm with some people down here wondering why the spurs run of 20 games in a row to close out the season and into the playoffs was not really mentioned much. That seems to be a harder set of games to put together.

    My expectations for when Miami got together was for them to break all type of records including the Bulls must wins on a season record, maybe I would think different about the streak if some of the teams they played are not so horrible that they should not even be in the NBA.

    I could probably think different if some of those teams were not already in tanking mode.

    Someone shoot me; I'm actually with Vnzla on this one. 27 in a row is impressive, but when you look at the Lakers 33 game streak and factor in that they were facing future HoFers on an almost nightly basis (the only times they didn't was when playing teams that had just joined the league a year before), the Miami streak just pales in comparision.

    Let's completely ignore the fact that athletes today are much bigger, stronger, faster as a whole than athletes in the 70s. Not to mention the talent pool and scouting pool is much deeper.

    Not downplaying the Lakers streak, but there was a lot of talent in the ABA at that time, and expansion over the previous few seasons had diluted the talent on each team. Both streaks are pretty impressive, the Lakers being more impressive obviously because they won more games. In a weird way I thought the Heat played better against the Bulls than they did in some of the games they've been winning over the last couple weeks, they just didn't get some of the lucky bounces they've been getting lately.

    It was also kinda strange watching just how much the Bulls wanted to win that game. It was clearly their Super Bowl and it underscores how far out of title contention they are. As a petty Pacers fan, I have to admit I like how much the tables have turned. The further a team gets from title contention, the happier they get about regular season wins.

    FWIW, I think LeBron does get fouled a lot. Kind of like Shaq did a lot.

    I think he gets beat up a hell of a lot where fouls are not called.

    That said, I also think he is a whiny *****. STFU and play teh game.

    You lost ONE game in almost 2 months and the first thing you do is whine and moan? Come on, man!

    You aren't looking at the whole picture.

    Yes, winning against a lot of those teams, individually, isn't that impressive. But to beat them all in a row like the Heat have done is extremely impressive. The odds of that happening have to be ridiculously low. (Well, clearly, as only one other team has done it.)

    I will say, to me, the Laker's streak is more impressive. For pretty much the same reason...it was a longer streak. Streaks are hard to continue regardless of competition.
