James takes flight as the Heat soar

LeBron James knows the history of the game, and to be a part of a team that now holds the second-longest win streak in NBA history, "it means a lot," as he said after the Heat's two point win over the Celtics. James did everything he could, including posturizing Jason Terry with a nasty one-handed alley-oop slam, to make sure Miami walked out of TD Garden arena with its win streak in tact, dropping 37 in the scoring column and contributing 12 assists that led to 27 points for his teammates. His combined 64 points responsible for was the second-highest mark this season.

LBJ wasn't the only player on a Miami team to will his team to victory. Shane Larkin didn't miss a moment, playing the entire 40 minutes for the Hurricanes as they won the school's first ACC tournament championship, defeating UNC, a school that has won the tournament 16 times. Rounding out an all-basketball top three is Kevin Durant, as he continues to display his arsenal by scoring from anywhere and everywhere on the court.
