Heat still ablaze as streak extends to 26MIAMI - The world’s best came out to see if Miami could do it again. Novak Djokovic, the top-ranked men’s tennis player. Wladimir Klitschko, the world heavyweight boxing king. Rory McIlroy, who sits atop the golf rankings for at least one more night.
And they got quite a show.
The Heat won their 26th straight game on Sunday, with LeBron James going for 32 points, 10 assists and eight rebounds in a 109-77 victory over the Charlotte Bobcats.
“I think it’s very humbling that you can have some of the greats from other sports come to see your team play, come to see you play,” said James, who was 11 for 14 from the field. “You try to leave an impression on them, as a team and as an individual, absolutely. So it was great to have them in the building, for sure.”
Miami is now seven victories shy of matching the 1971-72 Los Angeles Lakers for the league record of 33 in a row.
