WASHINGTON - Defending NBA champions Miami Heat, playing without their big three stars, clinched this season's best NBA record and home-field advantage in the play-offs with a 103-98 away victory over the Washington Wizards.

Ray Allen scored 23 points to lead the Heat, who lacked LeBron James due to a sore right hamstring, Dwyane Wade with a knee bruise and ankle sprain, Chris Bosh with the flu and Udonis Haslem with a sore right ankle.

The Heat set a new team record for victories in a single season with 62 and ensured they will finish atop the San Antonio Spurs, the leaders of the NBA Western Conference, for the top playoff seed.
