The Chicago Bulls upset the Miami Heat on Wednesday night 101-97. Miami’s 27-game winning streak was finally snapped. The Heat had the second-longest winning streak in NBA history, second only to the 1971-72 Los Angeles Lakers. The Lakers won 33 games in a row. (You’ve probably heard the number “33” mentioned about 371,085 times while the Miami Heat were challenging to break the record).
Luol Deng led the Bulls in scoring with 28 points as Carlos Boozer poured in 21 points to go along with 17 rebounds. LeBron James led all scorers with 32 points on 11-of-17 shooting. Miami’s winning streak was truly remarkable. It only took a mere 40 years for a team to come within six games of tying the Lakers record. It might take a very long time for us to see another winning streak that is comparable to Miami’s 27 straight wins.
