Cooper-USA TODAY SportsWith less than 20 minutes left in the game, the Heat were losing by 27 points to the Cleveland Cavaliers, and very much in danger of ending their 23-game winning streak.

A few minutes later, they were somehow winning, and ended up coming away with a 98-95 win.

This dagger in the heart of Cleveland fans was probably reminiscent to LeBron James' infamous "Decision," when he announced that he was taking his talents to South Beach.

LeBron was a huge key to the Heat's win, recording the 36th triple-double of his career. He had 25 points, 12 rebounds, and 10 assists. He led all players (on both teams) in each of those three categories.

This game showed just how mentally tough the Heat are, how talented they are, and how hard it might be for another team to actually break this streak.

The Cavaliers gave the Heat everything they had, but in the end, it just wasn't enough. The Heat, and LeBron in particular, are just too damn good.

So good, in fact, that Cavaliers fans desperately want LeBron to come back in 2014, when he has an option to opt out of his contract. One fan even ran onto the court with the words "We miss you, LeBron" on the front and "2014 come back" on the back.

Here's the video, in case you missed it:

To think 2 months ago people were wondering if the Heat were bored or not as good as last year.
