Chris Bosh wasn't quite sure about the fuss.
"I thought we had like five," he said before Saturday's 114-90 victory over the Philadelphia 76ers at the Wells Fargo Center.
The subject was double-digit winning streaks during the Miami Heat's Big Three Era.
Saturday's victory was the Heat's 10th in a row, just the second double-digit streak with the Heat's supercharged roster of Bosh, LeBron James and Dwyane Wade. Their longest remains a 12-game run early in the 2010-11 season.
"We've been pretty consistent," Bosh understated, the Heat now with victories in 15 of their last 17. "Winning streaks are tough to come by, they're very unique."
To a degree, Saturday's game, the Heat's fifth consecutive road victory, was unique because it was James deferring early to Wade before then stepping up for a triple-double.
"This is what we've been searching for all season," coach Erik Spoelstra said, "to show this consistency on the road."
Wade closed with 33 points on 14-of-18 shooting, reaching 16,000 career points along the way.
"He's having a career year efficiency-wise," Spoelstra said.
And on this night he took the James role in the offense.
"I had it going," Wade said, "and it's the luxury we had."
Said James, "I sensed that from the beginning, I didn't need to score."
