I remember when Celtcs snapped that. It was close after HT but we just took over on defense.

That was an awesome stretch of games. When Yao went down I thought it would end soon, but the next 10 games were surreal. Like someone said Deke was incredible coming out of no where to starting beasting at 42 years of age.

I think TMac was out with an injury partially through that streak. I remember him and Scola had some arguments about what to do etc...And because Tmac was no longer the center piece of their offense and the rest of the team evolved on without him, he became unhappy.

He was trade eventually.

I didn't follow them that closely, but I felt that they played up to their potential, playing a good team basketball and maximizing their roster effectiveness. A good team, but I never looked at them as at a contender, mainly because the very same reasons that stopped them from being one... Injuries and just a fragile duo of leading players (Yao/Mag).

I was actually talking (off-line) about the irony of the fact that the Rockets won 22 straight and faced the Celtics in the 23rd game, and now the Heat have won 22 straight and face the Celtics in the 23rd game.
