On an interesting note, the heat were 30-9 in their first season after bringing in Big three.



Yea, I'm willing to bet your life on them not going 8-26 over any stretch.


8...and 26...yea, no.

Well its 8-16, not 8-26. Also its not the rest of the season, just the 58 games into the season. Anyway the Heat has somewhat of an easy schedule in March so they should still finish at around 45-49 wins.

Nah even I won't believe that would happen. We aren't beating Miami with Perkins as our starting Center. Make fun of the confidence (or lack thereof) that I have for OKC, but its simply true.

Yea, I don't know how I did that. But there's no way they don't win 50 games.


45 is ridiculous. They're not going to the Finals, but you're taking it way too far.

Lets see... At 31-27, they need to go 19-5 for the rest of the season to win 50 games. Even though their schedule in March is easy, it seems highly unlikely to me they can win 80% of their games from March 4th to the end of regular season. Even the Clippers and Thunder cannot guarantee such a high winning percentage.

I know, I fixed my math issue.


The problem with your calculations is that they're never going to be 31-27.


I'm pretty sure they can go 27-21 the rest of the season.

None of us would have predicted the Heat to go 3-5 for the last 8 games, it happened anyway. Be hold, 31-27 is barely a playoffs team in Western Conference.

I really see no reason to be shocked over 3-5. 8 games is a lot smaller sample size than 24 games, than 48 games.
