Wednesday night there was no comeback in the final quarter, no buzzer beating shot and no record for the Miami Heat.

Miami’s quest for the NBA record ended when their winning streak of 27 straight games was snapped by the Chicago Bulls on the road by the score of 101-97.

The Heat’s streak was stopped just six wins short of the 33 game record, set by the Los Angeles Lakers during the 1971-72 NBA season.

After the game, LeBron James spoke to reporters about having no shame in falling short of the record.

“It’s one of the best that this league has ever seen. We recognized that and rightfully so.”

Chicago Bulls forward Luol Deng scored a team-high 28 points, while Carlos Boozer put up 21 points and grabbed 17 rebounds in their team’s win.

James finished with 32 points, seven rebounds, three assists, four blocks and two steals in 40 minutes for the Miami Heat.
