HOUSTON (AP) -- Even Houston coach Kevin McHale is caught up in the Miami Heat’s winning streak, and he wouldn’t mind seeing it continue against his former team.
Miami plays in Boston on Monday night, seeking its 23rd consecutive victory. The Heat beat Toronto 108-91 on Sunday to match the 22 consecutive games won by the 2007-08 Rockets, who were coached by Rick Adelman. McHale succeeded Adelman in 2011.
McHale won three championships and was a seven-time All-Star during his time with the Celtics from 1980-93. He watched part of Miami’s win on Sunday and would like to see the Heat keep the victory streak going in Boston. He says the streak “captures your attention” and it will draw more attention to the NBA the longer it goes.
