Miami Heat Tie the Rockets for Second Longest NBA Winning Streak March 17, 2013 20:41
Tonight, the Miami Heat took on the Toronto Raptors, and won 108 - 91, which takes them to their 22nd consecutive win.
That means that the Heat have equaled the NBA's second longest ever winning streak. The other team to hold the record is the Houston Rockets, who won 22 straight games in the 2007-08 season.
The Los Angeles Lakers hold the top spot in terms of NBA winning streaks, with a huge 33 consecutive wins from the 1971-72 season.
In the game against Toronto, LeBron James has 22 points, 12 rebounds and 8 assists, to which Dwayne Wade added 24 points an 9 assists (passing the 4,000 career assists mark).
Ray allen scored 16 points in the 4th quarter, which helped the Heat pull away at the end of the game. Tonight's game in Toronto must have been nice for the Heat, since their current winning streak started in Toronto back in February.
On the flip side, this was Toronto's 11th straight loss to the Miami Heat, becoming the Raptors longest active losing streak against a single opponent.
How far do you think the Heat are going to get on their streak? Which team has a chance of ending it?
