Thanks to the Chicago Bulls‘ victory over the Miami Heat Wednesday night, the Los Angeles Lakers and their fans are breathing a sigh of relief knowing their historic record of 33 consecutive wins is still on the history books
If you haven’t heard, the Heat’s bid for NBA history ended Wednesday night when their 27-game winning streak was snapped by the Chicago Bulls 101-97, setting off a raucous celebration inside United Center.
Miami finished six wins shy of the record held by the 1971-72 Los Angeles Lakers.
After the game, Miami’s LeBron James said there was no shame in falling short.
“It’s one of the best that this league has ever seen,” James said, referring to the streak that began on Super Bowl Sunday, Feb. 3. “We recognized that and rightfully so.”
James tried to spur yet another comeback in the final minutes, getting mad after a rough foul. But the reigning MVP never could get the defending champions even or, more importantly, ahead.
With only two-tenths of a second left, James took the final inbounds pass in his own end, dropped the ball to allow time to expire, turned and walked toward the exit.
Luol Deng scored 28 points, Carlos Boozer added 21 points and 17 rebounds, and the Bulls brought the Heat’s stampede to a screeching halt.
Miami’s superstar did all he could to keep the run going, scoring 32 points and even collecting a flagrant foul during a physical final few minutes.
“We haven’t had a chance to really have a moment to know what we just did,” James said. “We had a moment, just very fortunate, very humbling and blessed to be part of this team and be part of a streak like that.”
The Heat hadn’t lost since the Pacers beat them in Indianapolis on Feb. 1. But after grinding out some close wins lately, including a rally from 27 down in Cleveland, no one counted them out until the final buzzer.
Will Smith was initially rumored to be in talks for the role of Django when production began in 2011 on Quentin Tarantino’s slavery-era film “Django Unchained,” but the part eventually went to Jamie Foxx.
Smith has now confirmed that he was offered the part first, but rejected it over concerns Christoph Waltz’s bounty hunter character was the better role.
He tells Entertainment Weekly, “Django wasn’t the lead, so it was like, I need to be the lead. The other character was the lead!… I was like, ‘No, Quentin, please, I need to kill the bad guy!’”
Waltz went on to win a Best Supporting Actor Oscar for his role as Dr. King Schultz, but Smith insists he is not bitter about missing out on a part in the film.
“I thought (the movie) was brilliant. Just not for me,” he said.
I went to see the #2 Movie at the box office. Check out how other movies fared at the box office this weekend:

Fox has added to its series development slate, “The Run Of His Life: The People Vs. O.J. Simpson” (working title), based on legal journalist Jeffrey Toobin’s best-selling book of the same name about the Simpson trial.
From Nina Jacobson (“The Hunger Games” franchise) and Brad Simpson (“World War Z”), and written by Scott Alexander and Larry Karaszewski (“The People vs. Larry Flint”), “The Run Of His Life” takes viewers behind the scenes of The Trial of the Century, which culminated with Simpson’s shocking acquittal of the murders of wife Nicole Brown Simpson and Ronald Goldman.
This is not the first time Fox has attempted a Simpson project. In 2006, the network was set to air during the November sweep an interview with Simpson based on his proposed book “If I Did It,” which was going to be published by ReganBooks, an imprint owned by Fox owner News Corp. The book would have featured Simpson’s hypothetical take on how he would have murdered Simpson and Goldman. Both it and the interview were eventually scrapped amid public outrage.
