The Heat's unforgettable chase for history has come to a screeching halt at 27 games after the Bulls pulled off the upset Wednesday night. But don't fret because it's time to relive all the highlights (remarkable and ridiculous) Miami authored during this nearly two-month run.
The Harlem Shake Love 'em or hate 'em, the Miami Heat know how to have a good time. Nothing illustrated this better than when the defending champs jumped on the latest dance craze and nearly overloaded YouTube. Nearly 43 million clicks later, Miami's rendition proved to be one of the definitive takes. Check out 'Super Mario' Chalmers, King James and Dwyane (Teddy Bear) Wade break it down.
But like most anything else that's popular, there will always be haters. Cue the Minnesota Timberwolves' answer to the South Beach version.
LeBron 'Knights' Jason Terry Oh, Jason Terry. Did you not learn from Brandon Knight's mistake ? Obviously, he didn't. The Celtics veteran guard found himself in a no-win situation against the Heat on March 18. After turning the ball over, Terry tried to stop a Heat fastbreak, only to be caught on the wrong end of a LeBron James poster.
Fan runs onto court during Heat's huge rally over Cavs Down 26 points, on the road with less than 20 minutes to go. We all expected the Heat's streak to stop at 23 in Cleveland. But Miami answered with a 43-12 run to leave LeBron's former team and its fans shell-shocked. One fan made his presence known during the run, running up to King James decked out in a pro-LeBron shirt. How did the Heat pull off the miracle? Take a look.
Wade interviews LeBron Just because Dwyane Wade had to sit out a couple of games, doesn't mean he can't take part in the festivities. The Heat's star two-guard went one-on-one with King James after the game, quizzing him about the Heat's 26th consecutive and how the team could overcome the loss of WOW (Way of Wade). Even Bosh gets into the act.

Bosh's mariachi birthday Chris Bosh can't help but have a good time. So it should come as no surprise that the veteran Heat forward wouldn't have just any birthday party. So in the midst of the winning streak, Bosh enjoyed a mariachi-style B-day .

This Miami Heat team has always needed failure to help find and define how great they can be.

In so many ways, the Celtics resemble the spirit of Dante about to enter his journey into Hell to rescue his beloved Beatrice.

“Let me calculate my thoughts real fast before I say (what I want to say),” James said. “I believe and I know that a lot of my fouls are not basketball plays.
