"I'd kind of like to see the streak go a little bit, because it's so unique," McHale said before the Rockets played Golden State on Sunday night. "It's cool and I think that everybody starts watching the NBA a little bit more. It's good for the league."That being said, it’s not like he came out and said ‘I want the Heat to beat the Celtics’ but he did imply it. I bet deep down he also kind of would like the C’s to put a halt to the Heat. McHale also had another interesting quote about winning streaks, which the Celtics can relate to:
"You do get bored a little bit, and you get complacent," McHale said. "You start taking for granted that you're going to win and then you need to lose one or two, and then you need to get refocused and play. That's just what happens.
"It's a grind, the NBA is," he said. "The thing I've always been impressed about with long winning streaks is the fact that you keep your concentration long enough to do it. You win 10, 11, 12, 13, 14 in a row, you go into a bad team, it's this late in the year, that's usually when you stumble."In the big-three era it always seemed that they would get on a nice winning streak and then blow it against a bad team, playing down to the competition. So I guess we can take some comfort in the fact that on occasion the old-school Celtics dealt with the same problem. As long as KG plays tonight, I think the Celtics will beat the stupid Heat.
