MIAMI (AP) - Miami Heat fans pumped fists jubilantly, uncorked champagne and swarmed into the streets by the thousands to celebrate overnight after their team captured its second straight NBA title.
Many chanted: ``Let's go Heat! Let's go Heat!''
The noisy but largely peaceful celebration erupted after the Heat's 95-88 win over the San Antonio Spurs. Many streamed into the area around the AmericanAirlines Arena to exchange high-fives, blow whistles and scream themselves hoarse.
Some clambered up street signs. Others clanged on pots and pans in places such as Miami's Little Havana neighborhood. And after the partying faded early Friday, some streets were strewn with trash.
In San Antonio, disappointed Spurs fans left viewing parties in a somber mood. Some waved Spurs flags and honked horns anyway, vowing their team would be back.
