article imageMiami Heat extends win streak to 27, aims to break NBA record

By Leo Reyes     Mar 26, 2013 in Sports
Miami Heat is unstoppable as LeBron James pumped 24 points to win over Orlando Magic, scoring 108-94 and edging closer to the L.A. Lakers historic 33-game winning streak.
L.A. Lakers hold the longest winning streak by an NBA team with 33 successive victories recorded in 1971-72 season.
The team's longest running win streak started Nov. 5 and ended January 9 and was led by Wilt Chamberlain, Jerry West and Gail Goodrich.
Miami Heat is six uninterrupted winning games away to break that historic record.
James turned in 24 points and contributed 11 assists and nine rebounds. Mario Chalmers contributed 17, while Ray Allen and Chris Bosh delivered 12 points each.
In their previous game early this month, James also preserved the team's winning streak by scoring a last-minute lay-up to win over Orlando by a hairline at 96-97 with barely a second left in the game.
Dwayne Wade who did not see action in the game due to injury, could rejoin his team against Chicago on Wednesday.
The Heat's 27th uninterrupted win was Coach Erik Spoelstra's 250th win.
"We'll take this," Heat coach Erik Spoelstra said. "And we'll move on to the next game of our business trip."
