What to know about the Heat streak
By Tom Haberstroh
This could be a while.
With a resounding win over the Indiana Pacers on Sunday, the Heat have now won 18 games in a row, which is the third-longest streak since the NBA/ABA merger. And win No. 19 might be just around the corner. On Tuesday night, the Heat will host the Atlanta Hawks, a team that has lost five of its past six games. If Sunday's romp over a more formidable Pacers squad was any indication, the Heat are likely to go streaking at least once more.
How long will this streak go? Is it the most impressive 18-gamer ever? Who's the MVP of the streak? Let's tackle those questions and more ahead of Tuesday's showdown.
