Sports News Without Access, Favor, Or Discretion

The Miami heat failed to win a game for the first time since a February 1 loss against the Pacers. The next Sunday, Super Bowl Sunday, the Heat beat the Toronto Raptors 100-85 and kept on winning until tonight.

I've been staring at a blank screen for 15 minutes trying to figure out what to make of it all and here is the only significance I can find: it is damned impressive that the Heat spent essentially two months playing basketball without losing a game. They would play three, sometimes four games a week and they won all of them. They lost tonight because it was bound to happen and according to Luol Deng, the shorthanded Bulls were a motivated bunch tonight.


On Friday, the Heat get to play another streak-busting team in the New Orleans Hornets. They could be looking at their first losing streak since January.
