MIAMI -- Chris Bosh watched his first 3-pointer bounce once, twice, three times, four times before finally dropping into the net. Adrian Peterson Jersey . His next try, from almost the same spot, swished. And the third one essentially saved the Miami Heat. A threesome of 3-pointers -- he had never made that many in an NBA quarter, say nothing of his 79-second span Sunday night -- highlighted a run where Bosh scored 13 straight Miami points, and the Heat beat the Charlotte Bobcats 99-98 to extend their winning streak to 10 games. The Heat led for the final 1:20, the time remaining when Boshs third 3 put Miami up 93-91. Charlotte had held the lead for the previous 23:21. "It kind of just happened," Bosh said. "I was wide open so I figured I would take a step back and in the words of our late teammate Mike Miller, let it fly. That was really it." LeBron James led the Heat with 26 points, Bosh finished with 22, Dwyane Wade scored 17 and Mario Chalmers added 12 for Miami, which has beaten the Bobcats 14 straight times. Kemba Walker scored 27 points for the Bobcats. Gerald Henderson scored 17, and Al Jefferson finished with 16 points and 13 rebounds for Charlotte. "Its disappointing because I felt we had them. We outplayed them," Henderson said. "They just came up with the plays at the end of the game that championship teams tend to do." The Bobcats outscored Miami 25-14 in the third quarter and led by 14 points with 9:14 left. And then Miami scored 34 points in the final 8:20, which works out to a 196-point pace over a full regulation game. The Heat made 11 of their final 13 shots, with Boshs 3s leading the way -- Wade getting the assist on all three of them. "It started with us," Bobcats coach Steve Clifford said. "Instead of playing possession by possession, we made mistakes. They started going to the basket and we couldnt get them under control." James was highly effective again, scoring his 26 on only 13 shots and while dealing a balky back that has bothered him all season and flared up Friday in Toronto. James got treatment Saturday, received more Sunday until the start of pregame warmups, and played 38 minutes. "I dont think we did anything bad in the game," James said. "We defended. They hit some tough shots. We didnt turn the ball over, I think we had only 14 turnovers, they didnt have a bunch of offensive rebounds, they didnt have many fast-break points. Just one of those games where youve got to gut it out. And well take it." The Heat were down 12 when James re-entered the game with 8:04 left. He quickly got a three-point play to cut the lead to 79-70, and things got interesting. A 3-pointer from James with 6:18 left cut the lead to six. He made a pass to Chalmers for another 3 about 90 seconds later, getting Miami within three. Soon, the Bosh long-range display began. "Chris stepped up big," Heat coach Erik Spoelstra said. "Once he hit the first one, the second one, you could tell he wanted it." Charlotte scored the first six points of the second half, then opened things up with a 16-8 run. The Bobcats made five straight shots, all jumpers from an average of 18 feet, while the Heat missed their final five of the quarter and trailed 73-61 entering the fourth. Things werent decided until the final seven-tenths of a second. Walker was fouled while shooting a 3 with Miami up four. He made the first two free throws, tried to miss the third intentionally, but his shot bounced in and time expired one pass later. "We didnt think we had it," Walker said. "This is the NBA. Guys can score and be back in the game in a heartbeat. Thats what they did." Miami led by 10 twice during the first half, before the Bobcats put together an 18-7 run and took a one-point halftime lead. Wade was credited with his second block of the night on the final play before halftime, the swat being No. 676 of his career, the most recorded by an NBA player standing 6-foot-4 or shorter. Dennis Johnson was the holder of that distinction, getting 675 blocks in 1,100 games. Sunday was the Wades 679th game. NOTES: During one stoppage in play late in the first half, James shot a pair of 3-pointers that bounced off the rim, noteworthy because he shot them left-handed (he writes with his left hand, but plays with a dominant right hand). ... Michael Kidd-Gilchrist returned to the Charlotte lineup after missing one game with plantar fasciitis in his right foot. Terence Newman Jersey . -- The Orlando Magic finally are showing the patience in critical moments that coach Jacque Vaughn has been waiting for all season. Shamar Stephen Jersey .com) - Darius Carter and Ron Baker scored 18 points apiece to help 13th-ranked Wichita State beat Evansville 61-41 on Saturday. . He liked what he saw on Tuesday night. Not only did his team post a comeback 3-2 victory in a shootout over the Montreal Canadiens, but the rival Washington Capitals were beaten 5-1 in Buffalo.SUNRISE, Fla. – It took only a day for James van Riemsdyk to get his mind back to hockey. The Maple Leafs winger was in the driveway of his New Jersey home on the second day of the NHLs three-day Christmas stopover, shooting pucks on the driveway with his two younger brothers. Maybe for the first couple days you let your mind relax, but then at that point you start thinking about okay Ive got to be ready to go for the next game, said van Riemsdyk ahead of the clubs return to game action on Sunday in a matinee against the Panthers. Its kind of snapping back to reality, added head coach Randy Carlyle. They had some time with their family and they had a Christmas holiday, but now its time to go back to work. And if you look at the schedule and you look at the work that were going to have in front of us we better be ready. We have to be sharp mentally and thats really what were trying to do. The Leafs are about to enter their most difficult portion of the schedule, a road-heavy stretch that sees the club play 14 of the next 18 away from the comfy confines of the ACC. That stretch starts Sunday with a chaotic run of five games in seven nights in destinations ranging from sunny Florida to chilly Winnipeg. Toronto has played the most home games in the league thus far (tied with Detroit), taking full advantage with a league-leading 14 wins – also just behind the likes of Montreal, Tampa, and Detroit in the Atlantic division. But they have found that success with increasingly shaky fundamentals, looking more and more like the group that scored a boatload of goals while standing on the shoulders of two overworked goaltenders last year. Their possession numbers have predictably tumbled, better than only the Sabres and Blue Jackets in the past 16 games. Carlyle put his team through a detail-oriented 90-minute practice Saturday afternoon with that in mind. Chris Doleman Jersey. He worked the whiteboard, shouted out instructions, took questions and answers from the group during strategy sessions and skated players some after three straight days off the ice. All of it with the hope of shaping a flawed product. The Leafs gave up more shots than anyone last year and theyre not far off from fulfilling that pace once again this season. Only Buffalo has given up more shots on average than Toronto, including a 43-shot barrage in Dallas just before the break. It was the fourth time in 10 games that the club allowed 40 shots or more and ninth time in 35 games this season. As they have done so many times in recent memory, the Leafs survived on the strength of Jonathan Bernier – who earned his second shutout of the year – and a gaudy offence that scores more than any team in the league. We were loose and Bernie was called upon far, far too many times, Carlyle said of the 4-0 win over the Stars. That was the message [today]: we cannot continue to accept whats going on out there in the defensive zone. Eventually the goaltending crumbles under the weight of such a burden, as it did during a three-game losing skid that preceded the teams win in Dallas. Can the Leafs change course? Can they find a way to consistently implement the robotic structure theyve displayed only intermittently this season? Or will this remain a group that is flawed in its foundations, able to win only on the strength of a powerful offence and fine goaltending? Carlyle continues to hunt for a change in course. Can he and a revamped coaching staff succeed in doing so where last years group failed? That will be the question.
