MIAMI: The Miami Heat stretched their record win streak to 25 straight games Friday but once again they had to dig deep in the second half to rally past a spirited opponent.

The Heat, who own the second-longest streak in National Basketball Association history, beat the Detroit Pistons 103-89 behind a game-high 29-point effort from LeBron James.

“They got us on our heels to start the game but once we got our rhythm we started to play Miami Heat basketball,” James said.

James shot 12-of-15 from the field and finished with eight rebounds and eight assists for the Heat in front of a crowd of 20,350 at American Airlines Arena. Miami now trails the 1971-72 Los Angeles Lakers — who hold the NBA record — by eight games for the longest winning streak ever.

Miami got off to another slow start and trailed the Pistons 54-51 at halftime. The Heat had to battle back from two big deficits in their previous two games before facing Detroit.
