(INDIANAPOLIS) — The Miami Heat got off to their best start in franchise history on Tuesday night with a 105-90 win over the Indiana Pacers (17-11).
LeBron James led the way for Miami (23-7) with 23 points. With the win, they became the first NBA team in 33 years to win three straight games in three nights on the road.
“We just wanted to keep the momentum going. It’s another challenge for us,” said James. “This is a team that loves challenges. We wanted to continue to get better. We did that on these three games.”
The three-game stretch matched an accomplishment set by Phoenix from Dec. 21-23, 1979.
“We’re just playing well right now,” said Dwyane Wade who chipped in 16 points of his own. “On both ends of the floor we’re being very unselfish, everything’s working. The biggest thing is everyone is healthy. We just know what we’re going to get.”
