James/Wade Win 19th, top Jordan/Pippen

The Miami Heat made it 19 wins in a row by dominating the Atlanta Hawks 98-81, giving LeBron James supporters another talking point as the streak topped Michael Jordan’s best streak ever. However, with Dwyane Wade continuing his torrid streak with another 23 points Tuesday night, the comparisons of Wade and Scottie Pippen may also emerge. Here are the comparisons of both dynamic duos, projecting out Wade and James over the last quarter of the season.

Player Age FG% 3P% FT% Reb AST STL BLK PTS
Michael Jordan 32 50% 43% 83% 543 352 180 42 2491
LeBron James (82 games) 28 56% 40% 75% 658 577 138 69 2168
Scottie Pippen 30 46% 37% 68% 496 452 133 57 1496
Dwyane Wade (82 games) 31 52% 26% 75% 376 372 136 63 1649

James relied on Wade heavily, and James only scored 15 points Tuesday. The Heat now has the best record in the NBA at 48-14, but will come nowhere close to the 1995-96 Bulls 72-10 mark. However, during the streak the Heat went into Oklahoma City and crushed the defending Western Conference Champ, and defeated the two teams that had been 2-0 against them earlier in the season--the New York Knicks and Indiana Pacers.

While no one doubts the Heat will lose more games this year, the question that is being asked is what team can hope to beat them four times in seven games in the playoffs.
