|Miami Heat 27-Game Streak|
The lasting memory from the 2012 NBA season will be the Heat's 27-game winning streak. Encompassing the majority of February and March, the streak was the all too rare occurrence of the reigning champs in a sport playing their part and acting like actual champions. Usually they are successful, but the stars don't align in the exact same way they did a year earlier, and in the process of trying to beat every team giving their best every night, they wear down and the journey back is not as sweet.
One aspect of this streak that made it so interesting was how dominant the Heat were throughout. They won 8 games by over 15 points, a certified [Box Score] Blowout. There were 17 games with a scoring margin of 10 points or more. There were only a handful of teams that even gave them a hard time. Surprisingly, the Cavs did twice, with the Heat needing a huge comeback to win by 3.
It was very cool how Lebron and the Heat made the regular season more than a rush to position for the playoffs. They weren't competing against other as much as they were competing with themselves to see how good they could be. I'm so excited to see the wonders they create in the playoffs.
