Miami Heat's 27-game winning streak over

Story highlights

  • The Heat were six wins away from matching the NBA record
  • They lost to the Chicago Bulls 101-97 on Wednesday night
  • Some Bulls fans gave the Heat a standing ovation as they left the court

After a blazing hot winning streak, the Heat got turned off in Chicago.

The Miami Heat's 27-win run ended Wednesday night with a 101-97 loss to the Chicago Bulls.

LeBron James and company were six wins away from the NBA record of 33 consecutive victories. That record belongs to the 1971-1972 Los Angeles Lakers.

So close: Miami Heat not the only ones to almost break a record

Before Wednesday's defeat in Chicago, the Heat's last loss was on February 1 to the Indiana Pacers.

Despite James' 32 points, Miami couldn't top Luol Deng and the Bulls in their third meeting this season.

    While some Bulls fans reveled in triumph, holding a sign proclaiming, "THE STREAK IS OVER!!", many Chicago fans gave the Heat a standing ovation as the team left the court.

    The Bulls have been a formidable opponent for Miami in the past. The Heat have a 40-50 all-time record against the Bulls in regular season, and a 15-30 record for games played in Chicago.
