With a 36-14 overall record before the 2013 NBA All-Star break, the Miami Heat ended the "first half" of the season with the top record in the Eastern Conference.
While you could consider that a success, there's a lot of room for improvement for the reigning NBA champions.
If the Heat want to start their own NBA dynasty, they'll need to start asserting themselves not only in the East, but also against the best of the best coming out of the Western Conference.
If you thought LeBron James' record-breaking dominance in the first half of the season was fun to watch, then get ready for part two.
The Heat have their sights set on a second-straight NBA title, and the pursuit of that starts when the post All-Star break portion of the season gets under way.
