|MIAMI (AP) Miami Heat fans pumped fists jubilantly,[url=http://lunetteoakleysoldes.tumblr.com/]lunettes oakley[/url], uncorked champagne bottles and swarmed into the streets by the thousands to celebrate overnight after their team captured its second straight NBA title.
"The Heat they did it again,[url=http://lunettessoleiloakley.tumblr.com/]lunettes oakley[/url]! Best team in the world,[url=http://lunettedesoleiloakleysoldes.tumblr.com/]lunettes oakley[/url]!" one fan shouted,[url=http://lunettedesoleiloakleyfr.tumblr.com/]lunettes oakley[/url]. Others chanted raucously: "Let's go Heat! Let's go Heat,[url=http://lunettedevueoakley.tumblr.com/]lunettes oakley[/url]!"
The street celebration erupted in the closing seconds of the Heat's 9588 win over the San Antonio Spurs. It was a winnertakesall final game that brought fans streaming into the area around the AmericanAirlines Arena to exchange highfives, blow whistles and scream themselves hoarse.
Some clambered up street signs. Others clanged on pots and pans in Miami's Little Havana neighborhood. And after the partying faded in the wee hours Friday,[url=http://lunetteoakleyfrance.tumblr.com/]lunettes oakley[/url], some streets were strewn with trash from the merrymaking.
"It's a very peaceful celebration," Carroll said, adding a heavy police presence near the arena helped maintain control.
Unlike last year's final game blowout of the Oklahoma City Thunder, which ended a 41 Heat series win, the year's decisive Game 7 was close until the end,[url=http://oakleypascherfr.tumblr.com/]lunettes oakley[/url], adding to the jitters and excitement. A late run by Miami finally put the Spurs away.
"It's euphoria in the city of Miami,[url=http://lunettedesoleiloakleypascher.tumblr.com/]lunettes oakley[/url]," said Alex Vailon,[url=http://lunettesoakleypascherfr.tumblr.com/]lunettes oakley[/url], a 20yearold Miami resident. "How many teams have took two in a row?"
Several,[url=http://lunettesoakleypascher.tumblr.com/]lunettes oakley[/url], actually,[url=http://lunetteoakleypascherfr.tumblr.com/]lunettes oakley[/url], but Miami fans were not interested in history lessons as their team celebrated its third NBA title in the last eight seasons. As with the Heat's two previous titles, officials said the city's celebration was largely peaceful though police chased away the few celebrants who were jumping atop limousines leaving the arena.
A few miles away in Miami's Little Havana district,[url=http://oakleysoldes.tumblr.com/]lunettes oakley[/url], thousands gathered in the streets to bang pots and pans and hold up Heat signs and chant "Let's Go Heat!" People in the cars driving by rolled down their windows,[url=http://lunetteoakleypascherfrfrance.tumblr.com/]lunettes oakley[/url], stuck their bodies out and waved their hands.
"This is what we Latin people do," said Carlos Gonzalez,[url=http://lunetteoakleyholbrook.tumblr.com/]lunettes oakley[/url], 33, who was holding up a sign with an image of LeBron James' head.
In San Antonio, meanwhile, disappointed Spurs fans left viewing parties in a somber mood. Some waved Spurs flags anyway and honked horns in the streets. One cluster of fans cheered a passing pickup truck emblazoned with the words: "Go Spurs Go!" But one Spurs fan said he would cry himself to sleep.
