Chris Andersen: Miami Heat X-Factor

NBA365 Productions@@BR_NBASenior Writer IIMay 21, 2013

The Miami Heat had the best regular season in franchise history. Behind their 27-game win streak and 66-win season, the only thing missing to cap off this historic year is the Larry O'Brien trophy. 

The start of the season was far from special for the Miami Heat. They were playing as though they were just waiting for late April to come around so they could start their real season. 

Yet, once they acquired big man Chris "Birdman" Andersen, it seemed as though they found the energy they needed, as they went on to lose only 5 games since he joined the team in late January. 

Watch now to hear about "Birdman's" impact and let us know what you think in the comments below!
