The Miami Heat (56-14) ran its winning streak to 27 games after defeating the Orlando Magic (18-53) 108-94 Monday night. It’s the second longest winning streak in NBA history. The Heat are just six games shy of the 33-game record set by the 1972 Los Angeles Lakers. Miami’s LeBron James finished the game with 24 points, 11 assists and nine rebounds. James said that he’s honored to be a part of a team like the Heat.
Late in the third quarter, the Magic and the Heat were tied. The Heat used a 13-0 run after finding itself tied at 68. After James and the Heat got rolling, the Magic had no chance. He said that the team didn’t have a goal to put up a winning streak like this, and the team is only concerned about championships.
The Heat will play to extend their winning streak at Chicago this Wednesday.
