Another game, another double-digit rally for the Miami Heat.
And most importantly, another win.
LeBron James scored 29 points, Dwyane Wade added 19 and the Heat extended their winning streak to 25 games by pulling away in the second half and beating the Detroit Pistons 103-89 on Friday night.
Shane Battier and Mario Chalmers scored 11 apiece for Miami, which shook off yet another slow start to move within eight of tying the 1971-72 Los Angeles Lakers for the longest winning streak in NBA history. The Heat also won at home for the 16th straight time.
James added eight rebounds and eight assists for Miami, whose magic number for clinching the No. 1 seed in the Eastern Conference is now three.
Greg Monroe finished with 23 points and 15 rebounds for Detroit, which dropped its 10th straight game. Jose Calderon had 18 points and seven assists, most of that coming in the first half for the Pistons, who also got 18 points and eight rebounds from Kyle Singler.

BEST OF MAXIM
Visiting his former team in Cleveland on Wednesday, when a fan ran onto the court while the Heat were taking on the Cavaliers, it was probably easy for LeBron James to assume the worst. Nonetheless, the fan appeared to be a fan of King James (His shirt appeared to read “We miss you.”), security quickly subdued him, and that was that.
In many ways, it wasn’t any different than...
Following the Miami Heat’s huge comeback victory over the Cleveland Cavaliers at Quicken Loans Arena on Wednesday night and all the bizarre events that occurred during the game, an unidentified reporter simply trying to do his job was forced to tolerate towels being tossed his way, one of which landed on his head right in the middle of his interview with LeBron James.
MIAMI -- LeBron James is on quite a roll these days. He said he even picked Florida Gulf Coast to upset Georgetown on his NCAA tournament bracket.
So why should anyone get too worried when James and his Miami Heat fall behind by double digits these days?
Well, they still do.
For the third straight game, the Heat on Friday fell behind by more than 10 points. But once again they...
It seems like Lebron James still has some hardcore support in Cleveland.
In case you missed it, a 20-year-old fan stormed the court during the game between the Cleveland Cavaliers and the Miami Heat on Wednesday night, while wearing a shirt that said “We Miss You” on the front and on the back “2014 Come Back.”
The fan, who has been identified as James Blair, is obsessed...
LeBron James postgame after Heat win 25th straight.
These dunks have captivated the NBA of late giving fans something tremendous to watch, analysts something fun to talk about, and bloggers/tweeters/social media junkies fodder for some pretty entertaining posts.
So now the only question that still remains is which one is better--DeAndre Jordan demolishing Brandon Knight or LeBron James blowing the "Jet" Jason Terry up?
Tweet There have been quiet murmurs over the past year or so about LeBron James’ impending free agency that is coming after next season. Obviously one possible destination being thrown around is James’ first stop in the NBA, Cleveland. The idea was fueled by the fan that ran onto the floor wearing a “We Miss [...]

Ole Miss’ controversial star Marshall Henderson has gotten a lot of flak for shooting too much in big games for the Rebels. Even King James has noticed. Check out what he just tweeted – he’s obviously watching their second round matchup against Wisconsin.

MIAMI Mercury Morris influence has been expanded. Apparently, hes now also relevant when it comes to basketball streaks.
Earlier this month, when the Miami Heats winning streak had reached 16, forward Shane Battier was asked if the Heat could approach the 22-game run Battiers Houston Rockets had in 2007-08, then the second-longest in NBA history.
Like Mercury Morris (said), Dont...
