Midwest Sports Fans:
I had it all planned out.
“Miami’s Streak Ends in Cleveland.”
“Cavs Step Up to End the Streak of Former-Hero-Turned-Enemy.”
Any similar headline would have done the job, as long as the words let it be known that the Cavs had ended the streak of the mighty Heat in Cleveland.
Instead, the 23-game win streak turned into 24.

The score was 55-34 at the half in favor of the Cavs, but this lead was still not comfortable enough for fans in Cleveland. The Heat always seem to find a way to mount a comeback, and they never look worried.
A seemingly comfortable lead came with seven minutes (and three minutes) left in the third quarter. It was 67-40 in favor of the Cavs, which would be a devastating margin for any other team except the Heat.
Never looking like they were in trouble, the Heat mounted a 37-10 run to tie the game at 77 with 10 minutes left in the fourth quarter. The game-tying shot came by way of a three from LeBron, which was followed by...
BEST OF MAXIM
Former Lakers great Jerry West believes the Miami Heat have a great chance at breaking his '71-'72 Lakers' record winning streak.
LeBron James talked about his monster dunk on Jason Terry, saying that it was "sweet" to dunk on the Celtics guard. Why do you think?
The start of the Miami Heat's game against the Cavaliers was delayed 35 minutes Wednesday night because of liquid dripping from the scoreboard onto the floor.
The Cavaliers said the pool was caused by condensation from a carbon dioxide container in the scoreboard.
Lebrun James and members of the Heat were in position near the midcourt line and ready for tip-off in Quicken Loans...
Juwan Howard had signed two 10-day contracts before signing for the remainder of the campaign.
It wasnt long ago many on the Miami Heat were seemingly counting the days until the April 20 start of the playoffs.
Little did they know that come March, every game would feel like a playoff.
The same team that amazingly has reeled off 24 straight wins had a number of lackluster efforts early in the season. They lost, egads, at Washington and Detroit. They fell twice to New York...
The Miami Heat are still 10 wins away from breaking the Los Angeles Lakers’ NBA record of 33 consecutive regular season victories. That means they have a long way to go, but anything is possible with the way LeBron James and company have played lately. If the Heat can erase a 27-point deficit on the road to extend their streak to 24 games, what’s another 10 victories?
It would have been poetic if the lowly Cleveland Cavaliers had been able to beat LeBron James and the Heat in Cleveland to stop Miami's winning streak at 23--would have been.
At one time down by 27 points, the Heat overcame their largest deficit of the season to go on to win 98-95.
For a time it looked like they were going to be able to do just that after a 23-3 run...
LeBron James and the Miami Heat are about to play another game in Cleveland.
That's what a 23-game winning streak will do for a team.
It mutes even the LeBron-Goes-Home-Again hype.
Someday the Heat will lose another basketball game. Maybe even Wednesday night, when the reigning NBA champions drop by James' old neighborhood to take on James' old team, which happens...
With the memory of LeBron James’ return to Quicken Loans Arena on Wednesday night (his fourth time as a visiting player) still fresh in the minds of Clevelanders — not to mention the Miami Heat’s triumphant comeback against the Cavaliers and all the odd things that occurred during the game — the Cleveland Plain-Dealer conducted an online poll on the paper’s website asking...
LeBron James has taken it to Boston's Jason Terry again.
Miami's superstar said Wednesday that he ranks his monster dunk over Terry on Monday night as one of his best, and that it's one of his favorites because of his history with the talkative Celtics guard. James soared and grabbed a lob pass before smashing it over Terry, who was helpless to defend the shot or himself...
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 [...]
Previously on That NBA Lottery Pick, we featured a remixed clip of DeAndre Jordan's dunk on Brandon Knight using audio of WWE announcer Jim Ross freaking out.Now, LeBron James dunk over Jason Terry has received the Jim Ross treatment and it is hilarious:
