Postgame notes from Heat's 25th win in a row

A few tidbits from the Heat's 25th win in a row, against Detroit:

### Miami has won its last nine games in which it trailed at halftime -- including the last three.

### Eleven times this season, the Heat has overcome a double digit deficit to win. And it has happened three times this week alone. Talk about living dangerously.

### The Heat's 16 wins in a row at home stands two short of the franchise record, and also two short of the longest in the league this year --- San Antonio's 18 straight.

### This is the first time since 2005-06 when the Heat has won 31 games at home.

### With 21 assists Friday, the Heat has recorded at least 20 assists in 20 consecutive games for the first time since 1999-2000.

### Dwyane Wade, asked about the 1971-72 Lakers pulling for them to break their 33-in-a-row win streak record: "I don't believe it."

### James on beating the Lakers' streak: "It is not a goal and it has never been a goal of mine." But "I am not going to sit here and downplay and act like I don't know what the record is. I know it is 33. We don't get caught up and say, 'okay, eight games until we get it.' We just play our next game and see what happens."
