The streak is over. After winning 27 straight games over the course of 51 days, the Miami Heat have lost, 101-97, to a Chicago Bulls team that didn't have Joakim Noah or a Waka Flocka-rumored Derrick Rose return. Still, Luol Deng and his 28 points, along with Carlos Boozer's 21-point, 17-rebound performance, was enough to defeat Miami and the Big 3 of LeBron James, Chris Bosh and Dwyane Wade

While this win is a huge one for the Bulls, who improve their record to 39-31, the Heat are still the best in the East, regardless of the loss, at 56-15.
