Default is Miami Heat peaking too early?

I remember that year when the Rockets won 22 in a roll and were promptly eliminated early in the playoffs.

The longer this regular season win streak the more pressure it will be for the Heat to deliver. and players fortune and play ebb and flow througout the season, it seems like Heat is cashing in all their luck right now.

If I were them, I wouldn't tempt fate with this long win streak and tank a few game to take the edge off.

No. They're honestly not even playing that hard. They've been playing a pretty easy schedule and they don't really turn it on until the end of games. They're mostly just winning games they're supposed to win.

I don't think so.

If it was just Lebron, Wade, and Bosh out there playing super hard, I'd be scared of them getting worn out.

But Allen, Battier, Chalmers, and Chris Anderson are all playing well and so the big three hasn't even had to go all out.

but that's just it. Part of winning championship is getting lucky with injuries, not just avoiding injuries but conditional on injury occuring you rather they do earlier in the regular season.

Wade's playing healthy and energetic right NOW. but wouldn't you rather he be doing that in the playoffs?

nah they're pretty much coasting right now. they just go all out in stretches and end up dominating. heck this game today was tied in the 4th before the heat just went on a 22-4 run

Kobe Stan is so lost that he finds himself arguing that winning is a bad thing. Pathetic.

Even when Houston had that 22 game win streak going, NOBODY had them winning the title.

"Peaking too early" is one of the dumbest expressions in sports. I absolutely detest it.

There is never a bad time to be playing great. 5 of the 8 teams (prior to Miami) to win 18 or more games in a row ended up winning titles. Did they peak too early?

no it is true a team can peak too early. They can get on a false high, over confident, and then when they get beat all the air goes out the room and they fall apart.

not that Miami is anywhere close to their peak right now....

El O El. LeBron, Wade, and Bosh are playing significantly fewer minutes since being teammates on the Heat. AKA I feel sorry for the rest of the league.
