The 2004–05 NBA season was the 17th season for the Miami Heat in the National Basketball Association.[1] The Heat entered the season with high expectations following the acquisition of All-Star center Shaquille O'Neal from the Los Angeles Lakers,[2] plus signing free agents Christian Laettner, three-point specialist Damon Jones, and Shandon Anderson. The team played solid basketball posting a 14-game winning streak between December and January winning 25 of their first 32 games, then winning twelve straight between February and March. At midseason, the team re-signed free agent All-Star center Alonzo Mourning,[3] and re-acquired former Heat guard Steve Smith from the expansion Charlotte Bobcats. The Heat finished in first place in both their division and conference with a 59–23 record, which was the franchise's best since 1996–97.

Second-year star Dwyane Wade led the Heat in scoring averaging 24.1 points per game, while O'neal finished second on the team in scoring with 22.9 points per game. Both players were selected to play in the 2005 NBA All-Star Game at Denver, which marked Wade's first All-Star appearance.

In the first round of the playoffs, the Heat swept the New Jersey Nets in four straight games, then swept the Washington Wizards in four straight in the semifinals. However, the Heat were eventually eliminated in seven games during the Eastern Conference Finals by the 2nd-seeded, and defending NBA champion Detroit Pistons.[4] Following the season, Eddie Jones was traded to the Memphis Grizzlies, Damon Jones signed as a free agent with the Cleveland Cavaliers, and Laettner and Smith both retired.
