NBA: Miami 98, Atlanta 81

March 12, 2013 at 10:43 PM   |   Comments

MIAMI, March 12 (UPI) -- Dwyane Wade had six assists and five steals to go with 23 points Tuesday in the Miami Heat's 19th straight win, 98-81 over Atlanta.

The Heat matched the fifth-longest winning streak in NBA history despite a sub-par night from LeBron James, who was limited to 15 points on 3-of-11 shooting from the floor.

James, however, provided seven rebounds and seven assists.

The Heat will seek to become just the fourth team in league history to win 20 straight when they face Philadelphia Wednesday.

The Hawks were led by Josh Smith with 15 points and six boards.
