"You don't like to be part of that every day," Riley said. "So they're just happy this thing is over with."The scene at the final buzzer was championship-caliber.
Miami's 98-96 win over Indiana on Saturday snapped a 15-game slide, the second longest in Heat history. Back in 1988, Miami ended a 17-game slide with a one-point win over the Clippers. Here's a look at Miami's futility:
|Losing streak||17 games||15 games|
|Franchise game number||18||1,568|
|Opponent||at Clippers||vs. Pacers|
|Won by||1 point||2 points|
And with that, Heat relief.
So what if Miami only improved to 9-33, the worst record in the East? For the first time since Dec. 22, the Heat could leave a game happy.
Now that the Heat snapped their 15 game losing streak with a win, I'll laugh if they lose their next game.
