NBA: Miami's streak reaches 26

by The Associated Press on March 25, 2013 10:00 AM

MIAMI — LeBron James finished with 32 points, 10 assists and eight rebounds, Chris Bosh added 15 points and the Miami Heat won their 26th straight game, topping the Charlotte Bobcats 109-77 on Sunday night.

Norris Cole scored 15 and Ray Allen added 14 for the Heat, who played without guard Dwyane Wade, who was held from the lineup because of right knee soreness that the team believes is minor.

The Heat are now seven wins shy of matching the 1971-72 Los Angeles Lakers for the league record of 33.

Charlotte led by 11 in the early going and was within five in the third quarter, but two huge spurts by the Heat were more than enough to put the game away.

Miami used a 31-6 run in the first half to erase the deficit, and a 26-5 blitz in the second half finished the job.
