Miami Heat: Twitter Reacts To The Chicago Bulls Ending The Winning Streak


The streak is officially over!

After winning 27 consecutive games, the Miami Heat have now lost for just the first time since February 1st (102-89 to the Indiana Pacers).

With Derrick Rose, Joakim Noah and Marco Belinelli all on the sidelines, the Chicago Bulls managed to pull off the giant upset and knock off the defending NBA Champions by a final score of 101-97 Wednesday night, thus ending their historic streak.

Miami was just six wins away from tying the 1971-72 Los Angeles Lakers for the longest winning-streak in NBA history.

Luol Deng played 44+ minutes for Chicago leading the team with 28 points, including four three-pointers, seven rebounds and five assists. Carlos Boozer also played a major role for the Bulls, chipping in a double-double of 21 points and 17 rebounds.

LeBron James led all scorers with 32 points on 11 for 17 shooting, but it just wasn’t enough on this night. Dwayne Wade had 18 points and 7 rebounds, while Chris Bosh had 21 points and four blocks.
