And that’s a wrap on the Miami Heat’s 27-game winning streak. Chicago 101, Miami 97.
You have to admire how the Heat embraced the challenge of beating one of sports’ most formidable team records: the 1971-72 Lakers’ 33-game winning streak.
And you have to give it up to the Bulls, who did this without Derrick Rose or Joakim Noah. They were 6.5-point underdogs at home.
The Heat can now focus entirely on another title run, and good luck to any team who has to do what the Bulls accomplished four times over seven games against Miami.
