LOS ANGELES - Defending champions Miami matched the second-longest winning streak in NBA history when they beat the Toronto Raptors 108-91 on Sunday to notch their 22nd straight victory.
Dwyane Wade scored 24 points while LeBron James added 22 points plus 12 rebounds and eight assists and veteran Ray Allen fired in 16 of his 20 in the final quarter.
Miami's matched the 2007-08 Houston Rockets for the second-longest in NBA history, though their run of 22 games is still a ways from the all-time mark of 33 owned by the 1971-72 Los Angeles Lakers.
The Heat look to move into sole possession of second today when they visit the Boston Celtics, who have won 11 in a row at home. Boston are the team who snapped the Rockets' run on March 18, 2008. Chris Bosh scored 18 points against his former team for Miami (51-14), who outscored their hosts the Raptors 32-18 in the final quarter en route to a 10th consecutive road victory.
