SALT LAKE CITY - If the Miami Heat keep streaking - they have won 27 straight - they could tie the NBA record by beating the 76ers on April 6. The record of 33 straight wins was set by the 1971-72 Los Angeles Lakers.
Sixers coach Doug Collins believes that the Heat are good enough to break the record.
"Sure they can," Collins said Monday. "They have been pulling rabbits out of their hat lately, but they are in a rhythm.
"Absolutely, they could do it. They have great players, a great coach, they defend every night and they have championship players like Ray Allen and Shane Battier coming off their bench."
