Heat captains Dwyane Wade and Udonis Haslem have forbidden their teammates from going out and partying during their postseason run, according to the Associated Press.

"I think it's the best leadership and the strongest leadership that these guys have shown here in a Heat uniform," Miami coach Erik Spoelstra said. "That's the most powerful. We've talked about it all the time as a staff. Sometimes that can fall on, you know, not deaf ears, but when your veteran guys and your captains say that, I think that's a beautiful thing."

Wade and Haslem are the only rotation players left from Miami's 2006 NBA championship team.

"The veteran guys before us, when we came in to the league like Brian Grant, Eddie Jones, that's what they believed in," said Wade, referring to two former captains. "So this is the core of what we know. This is focus time. This isn't play time. Play time is the summer. You can do what you want in the regular season, too. Not now. We're the leaders, so we're just going from what we know."

They learned not to do this from the Lakers and last season's playoff run.
