 MIAMI (AP) - There have been blowouts, double-overtime thrillers and now buzzer-beaters during this 16-game winning streak by the Miami Heat.
And the Heat are trying to remain unfazed by them all.
A playoff spot will likely be clinched by the weekend, and at their current rate the top seed in the Eastern Conference playoffs should be wrapped up by the end of March. The streak is the second-longest in the NBA this season, topped only by the Los Angeles Clippers' 17-game run, and the Heat could match that with a win at home over Philadelphia on Friday night.
But the Heat are not exactly overwhelmed by the streak. Miami's goal is another NBA championship, and the 16 wins it'll take to get another trophy outweigh the significance of 16 straight wins now.
