They beat all the elite teams on their 17 and 1 record no need to worry about this little 4 game losing streak.  Lakers beat the OKCs, San Antnios, and Dallas. The message was sent, they are the team to beat.  After the injury scare to Bynum an Gasol they realized they dont need to go that hard for these last games.  No one can beat them when they are at full strength.  The Celtics on the other hand needed to show the Bulls they were the big dogs on the block and instead the Celtics got bit.  I'll admit i was wrong! the heat are not the team to beat in the east! It is the Bulls
