Miami Heat saw off Toronto Raptors, winning their 22nd consecutive game to tie the second-longest win streak in NBA history.
Heat beat Raptors 108-91. The Miami Heat were given a bit of a scare in the fourth quarter by the Toronto Raptors before winning their 22nd consecutive game on Sunday to tie the second longest winning streak in NBA history.
The Heat built up a 16-point lead in the first half but the Raptors chipped away and tied the game early in the fourth quarter before Miami pulled away down the stretch to win 108-91.
Miami are now tied with the 2007-08 Houston Rockets in second place with 22 straight wins in the NBA. Only the 1971-72 Los Angeles Lakers, who won 33 in a row, remain ahead of them.
Dwyane Wade had 24 points for Miami while LeBron James had 22. Rudy Gay and Amir Johnson were responsible for most of the Raptors scoring. Gay had 27 while Johnson had 18 to go along with 18 rebounds.
Toronto tied the game at 77-77 when Gay hit a pair of free throws at 11:08 in the final quarter, but the Heat responded with 12-straight points, including a highlight-reel dunk from Wade off a half-court lob from Norris Cole.
