If we go 3-3 on this trip, I will be really impressed. Winning on the road is not easy in the NBA, winning on the road against a top team is very, very hard. I think a lot of people under estimate the pride those teams are going to have against anther top team while playing on their floor. They don't want us to come in and smack them on their court when they believe themselves to be contenders as well. Give me a playoff series, and I would feel confident, but on a road trip against these teams won't be easy. 3-3 would be great.
As for the Heat, they hate us. They hate hearing that we are their biggest competition and I believe they are going to come out swinging. When LeBron James is motivated, they are near impossible to beat. I believe we can beat them in a 7 game series, but I'm also worried this road trip will wear us down physically and maybe even mentally a little.
Honestly, the best thing about this road trip, is that we might be back under the radar afterwards. People might think we can't hang with other contenders. I want them to think that and I want our players to know they think that.
