So, the Heat moved to 26 straight tonight with a win over Charlotte. Here are the Heat's next eight games:
3/25 - @ Orlando (18-52) 3/27 - @ Chicago (38-31) 3/29 - @ New Orleans (24-46) 3/31 - @ San Antonio (53-17) 4/2 - New York (42-26) 4/5 - @ Charlotte (16-54) 4/6 - Philadelphia (26-42) 4/9 - Milwaukee (34-35)
Obviously that San Antonio game jumps out above all the rest. Miami will be playing its fourth road game in a week against a team that the Heat only just recently passed for best record in the league despite the monster winning streak.
It is really my hope that by starting this thread I will doom the Heat to failure. And I don't think they'll get it - I think the Spurs will stop them. But I do expect the Heat to romp to the title and it seems like the only thing that can stop this team from dominating the league like Jordan's Bulls did is Lebron opting out of his deal and heading elsewhere.
Perhaps Carlisle and Co. thought that after the exit from the playoffs last season, Stackhouse would come back as the old Stackhouse, take about 40 shots a night in order to put up the numbers for his trip into free agency.
