Winning streaks

LeBron James scored a game-winning layup against the Orlando Magic Wednesday to help the Miami Heat pull off the victory and extend their winning streak to 16 consecutive games. James scored 26 points on the night, and teammate Dwyane Wade added 24 as the Heat continue to lead the NBA’s Eastern Conference. The Chicago Blackhawks continued their historic NHL point streak as they now reached 24 games this season, and 30 overall dating back to last year’s regular season. The Blackhawks have not suffered a loss in regulation during that time, which means they have gained at least one point in the standings every game for the last 30 games. The Blackhawks have three overtime losses this season, which still earns them one point in the standings. The point streak is the second-longest in NHL history, topped only by the 1979-1980 Philadelphia Flyers, who extended their point streak to 35 straight games.

Utah Jazz

The Cleveland Cavaliers outscored the Utah Jazz by 11 points in the fourth quarter to pull out a 104-101 victory Wednesday. Mo Williams played in his first game since he had thumb surgery about two months ago, and he missed a potential game-winning layup with 5 seconds remaining on the clock. Gordon Hayward led the Jazz with 25 points, seven assists and three steals, while second-year star Kyrie Irving put in a double-double with 20 points and 10 assists. He also snagged seven rebounds. The Jazz still hold the final playoff spot, but the Lakers now trail them by just 1 1/2 games. The Jazz next visit the Chicago Bulls on Friday.
