Bouncing back into any series has been a hard job to do for most teams. But unlike the weaker possibilities, Miami Heat holds a tremendous Playoff record of making a comeback in Game 2 after facing a loss in Game 1. As Jimmy Butler and Co. move into the second game of the Finals against the Lakers, this stat holds crucial importance for the Eastern winners.

Recently, Heat lost to LeBron James and the Lakers in the opening game of the NBA finals. The latter dominated them entirely. Moreover, it was an injury-plagued match for Heat that added to their fans’ dismay. They eventually were defeated 116-98 in that match where Butler was Heat’s highest scorer with 23 points.

It’s the second game of the series and the Lakers are holding strong with standout performances from Bron and Davis. But a mind-boggling stat has come into the picture for increasing hopes on Miami’s end.

“Heat have won 7 straight Game 2s after a Game 1 loss, all under Erik Spoelstra, the longest such streak in NBA history,” according to ESPN.

Well, that is some extraordinary streak held by Miami. This goes back to the time LeBron James signed with the Heat in 2010. Ever since then, the record is alive.

Miami Heat is doubtful about Bam Adebayo and Goran Dragic taking the court in Game 2 of the ongoing Finals. The two key players suffered respective injuries in the opening game and ever since then, Heat is in a tough spot for the title.
