Chris Bosh scored 14 of his 22 points in the last four minutes of regulation to push the Miami Heat past the Charlotte Bobcats 99-98. Miami trailed 89-84 before Bosh made three consecutive 3-pointers to give the Heat a 93-91 lead with 1:20 remaining.

The Heat extended their winning streak to 10 games and have defeated the Bobcats 14 straight times.

LeBron James scored 10 of his team-high 26 points in the fourth quarter. Charlotte led by as much as 14 points with less than nine minutes left before Miami closed the game on a 34-19 run.

The Bobcats entered Sunday’s game with the league’s second-lowest fourth quarter point differential. Charlotte was outscored 38-25 in the fourth quarter after outscoring Miami 25-14 in the third quarter.

Kemba Walker had a game-high 27 points, including 13 points in the fourth quarter. Walker was fouled by Norris Cole on a 3-point shot with less than a second remaining. After making two free throws, Walker attempted to miss the third for a putback opportunity, but the shot went in off the glass and Miami inbounded the ball to end the game.

Al Jefferson scored in double figures for the fifth consecutive game with 16 points, 13 rebounds, and three steals.

Gerald Henderson had 17 points, six rebounds, and four assists. After a slow start to the season, Henderson is averaging 16.6 points in his last five games.
