The Heat have a former member of the Boston Celtics as part of their starting 5 this season in Ray Allen. The two teams have had a few playoff battles as of late, so of course there’s no love lost between the two teams. Naturally when asked about the Heat’s current 21-game winning streak, Paul Pierce and company don’t really have much to say about it. Jason Terry: “Not really impressed with it or anything that they do,” said Terry, who has a history with Miami from his Dallas days when the two teams met in the 2011 Finals. “So, for me, it’s more about what our team is doing and how we’re coming together as a unit.” Paul Pierce: “I really don’t even care. I hope they lose every game the rest of the season. I just worry about what this team does.” “It’s rare when you’ve got a team that plays so well to be able to do that,” said Pierce. “It’s hard not to keep track of it. Any time you go to NBA.com or ESPN.com, it’s going to be right there. It’s very impressive what they’re doing. It is what it is. But I think they don’t care about the winning streak.”  Last but not least, Coach Doc Rivers: “I don’t really care,” he said. “We’re going to play them one way or another, whether they have a streak or coming off a loss. We’ll be ready; I’m sure they will be.” “It’s impressive, it’s really impressive,” he said. “The year after we won it, I think we won [19] in a row, right before Kevin went down [with a season-ending knee injury], and it’s hard to do — for a lot of reasons. But it’s harder to do for a defending champ, because every night is the other team’s biggest game. And the fact that they are doing it under those circumstances is pretty impressive.” The two teams face off on Monday with the Heat possibly looking for win #23 in a row. They take on Chris Bosh’s old team the Raptors first. Should be a fun game to watch.
