Heat Streak Over

Heat's Streaked Snapped By Shorthanded Bulls

No last-second shot.

No fourth-quarter rally.

No record for LeBron James and the Miami Heat, either.

The Heat's bid for NBA history ended Wednesday night when their 27-game winning streak was snapped by the Chicago Bulls 101-97, setting off a raucous celebration inside United Center.

Miami finished six wins shy of the 33-game record held by the 1971-72 Los Angeles Lakers.

Later, James said there was no shame in falling short.

"It's one of the best that this league has ever seen," James said, referring to the streak that began on Super Bowl Sunday, Feb. 3. "We recognized that and rightfully so."

James tried to spur yet another comeback in the final minutes, getting mad after a rough foul. But the reigning MVP never could get the defending champions even or, more importantly, ahead.
