HOUSTON -- The Miami Heat spent more than 38 hours on their team jet and flew more than 31,000 miles in December. That’s a long month, though it probably never seemed like it because everything is easier when a team is winning, including the travel.

With their frenetic 125-119 victory over the Houston Rockets on Wednesday night, the Heat completed a highly improbable feat by sweeping the 10 road games on their December schedule. They became the first team in league history to go 10-0 away from home in a calendar month.

It included two separate trips to the West Coast, a victory over the Los Angeles Lakers, a win over the New York Knicks and snapping the Rockets’ eight-game home winning streak. The Heat won four of the games on the second night of back-to-backs, which is harder than it sounds. They took a game in each time zone. And they had that Dec. 2 win in Cleveland in an environment that was as intense as you’ll see in American sport.
