History is being made right before our eyes. The Chicago Blackhawks and the Miami Heat continue to extend their impressive winning streaks. The Blackhawks have now earned at least one point in 24 straight games. During this streak they have now won 11 games in a row. Not all of their games have been easy, but they keep finding a way to win night in and night out. Last night the Blackhawks scored 2 goals in the 3rd period to earn a come from behind victory; 3-2. The game winning goal came from Daniel Carcillo with just under 50 seconds left in the game. The Blackhawks will continue to keep their points and winning streak alive on Friday night when they visit the Colorado Avalanche. The Blackhawks should be able to win that game easily, as the Avalanche have one of the worst records in the league.
Another streak that continued Wednesday night was the Miami Heat’s winning streak. A win against the Orlando Magic brought their streak to 16 games. The Heat continue to pile up wins and are an amazing 27-3 at home this season, but they should be a little concerned that they nearly blew another big lead against a sub-par team. They were up by 15 at halftime, and by the time they were heading to the 4th quarter they were only up by 3 points. They did the same thing against the Sacremento Kings, blowing an 8 point lead with only 1:12 left in regulation. It was also nice to see Lebron finally hit a game winning shot for the Miami Heat. It was his first with the Heat, and by my recollection his second of his career (it’s about time buddy). For his sake, hopefully he can add clutch to his resume in the near future. As of now that’s just about the only thing missing from his resume. The Miami Heat will look to keep their winning streak alive Friday night at 8:00 P.M. against the Philadelphia 76ers.
Both of these streaks are extremely impressive. How far do you think each streak will go? Which streak do you think is more impressive? Leave me your feedback in the comment section below. I look forward to hearing your reactions.
