    Can they? Yes. Will they? I doubt it. When you know you're going to be the number 1 seed why wear your stars out chasing some record that doesn't matter? Rings are the only things that matter.

    A couple of things will need to happen, They'll have to win at least 30 games straight in order to put it on the forefront of their mind to make "history". The coaches and management team as well as the players would have to be on the same page with regard to making it a priority.
    I remember when the Chicago Bulls went 72-10. That team (wanted) to win every single game night in and night out. They were shooting for perfection. In today's climate it is more like what cdpayne described: If they lock up the best record to have home court for the whole playoffs they are likely to rest their stars. If on the other hand OKC and San Antonio keeps the pressure on them by staying within a couple of games for the best record for the remainder of the season then Miami will have an incentive to keep putting their best efforts  out there. Last but not least they have to stay healthy. At any moment a key player could get injured.

    It seems to me the schedule is in their favor.  Among the other five first-place clubs they're done for the regular season with the Clippers, Pacers, and Thunder.  The biggest test for Miami is when they play San Antonio and New York in back-to-back games March 31 and April 2.  They would be wins 30 and 31.  The contest against the Spurs will be the the fourth game in a four-game road trip. If the streak lasts that long and they win at San Antonio, they should feel pretty good about playing the Knicks in Miami.  At that point the record will be in sight and they just might do it.

      I think you may be right Tim.....The only team on their schedule that matches up well with them is the Spurs...Maybe my beloved Bulls if they get injured players back, but they just might do it.
