NBA history was made today, and as they’ve done before, the Raptors played the role of red carpet.
The Heat have now won 22 straight games, tying them with the 07-08 Rockets for second longest winning streak ever. To put that in perspective, the Raptors have won 26 games all season. This one was actually close, tied 77-77 at one point, but the Heat just had to step on the gas a little bit to pour on a 28-6 run and put the game out of reach.
On the bright side, Mo Pete was at the game. And this guy wins the award for Best Ever Use Of Duct Tape.
But this is one of those days where the bright side looks pretty dim. Back in 2007-08, when the Rockets had their 22-game streak, the Raptors, led by Chris Bosh, finished the season at an even 41-41, while the Heat had their worst season ever, with a 15-67 record. A few years later, and here we are. Bosh and the Heat are in the record books, and the Raptors are…enduring another depressing St. Patrick’s day.
You’re welcome, Miami.
