(MIAMI) — The Miami Heat made their latest victory look easy.
Mario Chalmers scored 26 points to help the Heat defeat the Indiana Pacers, 105-91, at AmericanAirlines Arena on Sunday night for their 18th straight win.
The streak is now tied for seventh-longest in NBA history.
Miami (47-14) got the win despite getting a season-low 13 points from LeBron James. “That’s the thing about our team,” Chalmers said. “We can click on all cylinders.”
James did dish out seven assists and grab six rebounds to help the Heat shoot 55 percent from the field. “We just did what we’re supposed to do,” said Dwyane Wade. “Win at home.”
Indiana (39-24) had won the first two meetings with Miami this season, but could not get going and turned the ball over 16 times. “Tough loss,” Pacers coach Frank Vogel said. “Give credit to the Heat for really outplaying us.”
