Chris Bosh scored 13 straight points for Miami in the final minutes, including a trio of 3-pointers that capped a late rally, and the Heat found a way to beat the Charlotte Bobcats 99-98 on Sunday night to extend their winning streak to 10 games.

Bosh's three 3s came in a 79-second span, the last one putting Miami up 93-91 with 1:20 left.

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, who led the entire second half until Bosh's barrage.

Gerald Henderson scored 17 and Al Jefferson finished with 16 points and 13 rebounds for Charlotte.

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 in a hurry.

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, and that shot got Miami within three.

That's when Bosh's long-range display began. The first one bounced off the rim or backboard at least five times. The second one swished.

The third one put Miami up for good, 93-91.
