    Actually Suns fans I can see being disgruntled with all their early playoff exists. Celts fans though? After years of watching nothing but project players play I would be surprised.

    Good question.

    I don't believe that any NBA team except for the 71-72 Lakers have won 80% of their road games, which is the pace that the Celtics are on. I don't think that they will win 32 road games because they are only 8 - 6 in their last 14 games and while I think that they will do better than that the rest of the way unless they have more injuries to any of the big three, I still don't see them winning 32 games on the road this year.

    The Mavs were 31-10 on the road last year.

    In 2005, the Suns were 31-10 on the road.

    Those are the best records over the last 5-6 years.

    So do you think that the Celtics have a chance to have the best NBA road record ever?

    I don't see it happening. They seem to be losing some steam as the season goes on.

    Exactly my thinking. It seems to me when you start to lose some steam in the NBA it is the road record that suffers the most. That is why I think that once the home and road games even out we should be very close to the Celtics in wins and losses.

    The reason that they won't set the record, and the reason that the record isn't that impressive in the first place, is that most NBA teams with leads in the standings don't really care. The games become borderline meaningless. Especially after their playoff spot is essentially clinched.

    Get the feeling the Heat are happy Shaq is gone. It's Wades team now. If that means something.
