5 Goals for Miami Heat in Season's Second Half
Brett Davis-USA TODAY Sports
Things are looking good for the Heat entering the stretch run.

The Heat rolled into the All-Star break on a seven-game winning streak, a full four games in front of the rest of the Eastern Conference, in prime position as they pursue their second straight championship. 

And yet, on a scale of 10, where do they stand?

"I'd say we're a 7," Chris Bosh said. 

That may seem to low to some, with the Heat on a 59-win pace.

If they've been a 7, what are the Wizards, Cavaliers, Pistons and Kings

Still, Bosh's perspective makes sense, in light of the expectations.  

“We haven’t put a string of wins together on the road yet,” Bosh said. “We’re going to be facing that challenge, and we have plenty of opportunities when we start back playing.”

This week alone, the Heat, just 13-11 on the road, will travel to East cities Atlanta, Chicago and Philadelphia before returning home to face Cleveland.

As LeBron James put it: 

“You know, we’re at a ‘7’ and I think that’s exactly where we want to be right now. We don’t want to be at a ‘10,’ with 50 games played. Right now, we’re about at a ‘7,’ but our ‘7’ has an arrow that’s going up. And that’s exactly where we want to be. And we look forward to getting all the way to ‘10’ at the latter part of the season.”

So what should be the five goals as they go forward?
