Apr 05, 2013

What is going on in the NBA and the NHL that teams just keep winning and winning? The players get so excited about the winning streak that they treat every game like it's the championship final. Nobody ever really gets excited about their sports until the playoffs... unless your team goes on a record-breaking winning streak, so let's check out some of these amazing winning streaks...

2013 Winning Sreaks

There have been 4 amazing winning streaks in pro sports this year and it's only April. 2013 marks the year of something very special because it's very rare to see pro sports team dominate the competition like this. So here are the results.

The Miami Heat win 27 games in a row. This had to be the most popular winning streak because of Lebron James and his domination of basketball. At one point, you thought that the Heat were just going to win every game for the rest of the season. Miraculously, the Chicago Bulls ended their streak with some amazing 3-point shooting.

Chicago Blackhawks started the NHL season with at least 1 point in their first 24 games. Everyone is excited that Patrick Kane is finally showing the leadership of the next emerging Superstar with his job-dropping skills.

The Pittsburgh Penguins won 15 games in a row. Unfortunately the NHL's best player on the Penguins, Sidney Crosby got hit in the head with a slap shot and the next game the Penguins lost.

Shadowed by the more popular teams, you'd be surprised to hear that the Denver Nuggets won 15 games in a row. That's still pretty amazing considering most people can't even name one player who plays on the Nuggets... mmmmmm.... Corey Brewer?

All-time Longest Win Streaks

So how close were these win streaks to breaking the World Records? Check it out:

The longest winning streak for any professional sports team is held by the 1971-72 LA Lakers when Wilt Chamberlain dominated the opposition and lead the Lakers to 33 wins in a row. In case you don't know who Wilt is, he once scored 101 points in a single NBA game!!!
