The Heat’s winning streak, now at 23 games after a brilliant 105-103 comeback victory over the banged up but brazen Boston Celtics, has engulfed them. The second-longest winning streak in the 67-year history of the league is now theirs. They are closer to that indomitable 33-game streak owned by that all-time great Lakers team from 41 years ago.
It has them thinking: What if they, too, are an all-time great team?
“I know the history of the game,” said James, who scored 13 of his 37 points in the furious fourth-quarter run. “Of all the teams that have come through the ranks, to be in second place now — for us to be there and do it the way we want to do it, it means a lot.” via – ESPN
