Heat beats Spurs

SAN ANTONIO, Texas - Miami superstars LeBron James and Dwyane Wade sat out the NBA's marquee match-up against San Antonio on Sunday, but Chris Bosh provided enough star power to lift the Heat to an 88-86 victory.

Reigning NBA champions and Eastern Conference leaders Miami forged a three-game advantage over Western Conference leaders San Antonio for the best record in the league and home-court advantage throughout the playoffs.

They have also swept the season series with the Spurs, earning the head-to-head tie-breaker for home-court.

Bosh, the often overlooked member of Miami's 'Big Three', made sure the Heat didn't miss injured James and Wade. With the Heat trailing 85-86, he drained the go-ahead three-pointer with 1.9 seconds remaining, as Miami held on for their second straight victory since having their 27-game winning streak snapped by Chicago on Wednesday.
