With that in mind, here are the rankings of the 25 greatest current streaks in sports. Note: These rankings are indisputable, so please don’t even attempt to argue.

25. Consecutive wins (15) by the Miami Heat

24. Consecutive games (23) with a point by the Chicago Blackhawks

23. Consecutive spring training exhibition game wins (10) by the Kansas City Royals

22. Consecutive weeks the No. 1 ranked men’s college basketball team was overrated

21. Consecutive plays in which a wide receiver was positive there was defensive pass interference

20. Consecutive plays in which a defensive back was positive he did not commit defensive pass interference

18. Consecutive soft goals allowed by your team’s goalie
