This duo has been unstoppable
The Hurricanes began the season with an embarrassing loss in their second game against Florida Gulf Coast and then a win against a solid La Salle squad put them at 9-3 heading into ACC play, where they proceeded to win 13 more straight games.
This 14-game streak included a win against Duke when they were No. 1 and a win at North Carolina State when they were No. 19. It is hard for any team, in any conference, to win that many games in a row because of the parity of college basketball (especially this season), the inexperience of the young players and the hostile environments on the road.
However, the Miami Heat are currently riding a 15-game winning streak as they continue to dominate the best players in the world. They aren’t just beating up on the weaker teams in the league either. During this run, the Heat have taken down the Clippers, Grizzlies and Lakers at home and the Thunder, Bulls and Knicks on the road.
The Hurricanes' streak was very impressive, but it consisted of 14 games in 48 days against an ACC that’s in a down year, which doesn't compare to the Heat's 15 wins in 32 days against the NBA.
Advantage: Miami Heat
