Heat survive Magic, extend win streak to 16
Miami, FL (Sports Network) - LeBron James just wouldn't let Miami's winning streak end, even after the Heat blew a 20-point lead against one of the worst teams in the Eastern Conference.
James knifed through the lane for a left-handed layup with 3.2 seconds left to boost the Heat to a 97-96 victory over the Orlando Magic.
The reigning league MVP had 26 points, as the Heat extended a franchise-record with their 16th consecutive win.
Dwyane Wade tallied 24 points, but the Heat had to overcome a great game from Nikola Vucevic. The second-year forward had 25 points and 21 rebounds, but the Magic faltered for the 21st time in their last 24 games.
