MIAMI – To go nearly two months without a loss, it makes sense that a team would be winning games in a variety of ways.
That's very much the case for the Miami Heat.
Now winners of 24 straight, the Heat have had to pull off huge rallies in each of their last two games to keep the second-longest streak in NBA history alive. Miami was down 17 in the first half and 13 in the fourth quarter against Boston before winning, and somehow escaped a 27-point deficit to win in Cleveland on Wednesday night.
In 13 of the past 14 games before the trip to Boston, the Heat never trailed by more than double digits. Clearly, they hadn't forgotten what it was like to have to pull games out.
