Found March 15, 2013 on Beyond The Buzzer:
You can’t tune out the fact that the Miami Heat have won 20 straight games and are now tied for the third-longest winning streak in NBA history. The longest, 33 in a row, was done by the 1971-72 Los Angeles Lakers. But, if you ask Paul Pierce what he thinks about the potential of playing the Heat on a 22-game win streak come Monday, he simply doesn’t care and if truth be told, hopes they lose out the rest of the way. According to ESPN Boston: Asked if he wants the Heat to still be carrying that streak on Monday, Pierce offered, “I really don’t even care. I hope they lose every game the rest of the season. I just worry about what this team does.”
