New York Sports-Kings:
The Miami Heat are currently on a historic winning streak. They’ve won their last 27 games and are slowly catching up to the NBA record 33 game winning streak set by the 1971-1972 Lakers. The Knicks are hoping to change that come next weeks matchup with the NBA champions. When asked about the Heat’s historic winning streak, Mike Woodson had this to say: “They’re playing at such a high level, nobody is coming close to beating them,’’ Woodson said at the morning shootaround Tuesday at TD Garden. “ It would be nice. Their streak could end. They’re playing two good teams (beforehand) . (But if) they’re undefeated and we go into Miami, hopefully we can be the team to break their streak.’’ The Heat’s next two opponents are the Hornets and Thunder, both on the road. But, apparently, Mike Woodson and company are hoping the Heat have their winning streak intact when they play the Knicks on Tuesday of next week. The Heat have all but locked the number one position in the East. The Knicks are currently tied with the Indiana Pacers for the number two seed and will be fighting for the position for the remainder of the regular season. It will be very interesting to see if the Heat have their winning streak at 29 when they face off against the Knicks next week. The Knicks have won 2 of the 3 games this year and the Heat will be looking to even the series.

This Miami Heat team has always needed failure to help find and define how great they can be. And so, in the end, with its near-historic winning streak halted at 27, it's true again: Their setback allows us and them to sit back, marvel at what they accomplished and fully grasp just how much LeBron James has transformed himself, his team and his league.

LeBron James and Taj Gibson spent together last summer.
LeBron James was in perfect position for the rebound he needed for a triple-double. Near the rim, no Orlando opponents in his way, he readied his hands as he gazed toward the basket.
Only problem was, E'Twaun Moore made the shot.
James' night was complete a few moments later. No triple-double, the 24th time he fell short of the feat by exactly one assist or one rebound...

The streak is over. It died a strange and unexpected death last night at the United Center in Chicago, where a raucous Bulls crowd of 23,014 hooted and hollered the home town Los Bulls over the El Heat, in a 101-97 victory (history will surely frown on those jerseys).
There was no crack at a buzzer-beater. No last second shot that could’ve tied it. It didn’t even...
