MILWAUKEE -- LeBron James and Chris Bosh each scored 28 points, and the Miami Heat made it 21 straight wins, beating the Milwaukee Bucks 107-94 on Friday night.
Only three other teams have won 20 in a row in one season, and the Heat now trail just the 1971-72 Los Angeles Lakers (33) and the 2007-08 Houston Rockets (22) after moving ahead of the 1970-71 Bucks.
They withstood an early scare when Dwyane Wade walked to the locker room with a neck strain after crashing to the court. Miami led by as much as 17 in the third quarter, then withstood a push by the Bucks to remain unbeaten since a loss at Indiana on Feb. 1.
Miami next plays Sunday at Toronto, where the winning streak began on Feb. 3.
Bosh hit from all angles and was 12 of 16 in the game, nailing two 3-pointers. He even converted a four-point play that made it 67-53 about five minutes into the third quarter.
James was his usual dominant self, and Wade finished with 20 points as the Heat avenged a loss at Milwaukee in late December.
Kobe exits early, but Lakers win
INDIANAPOLIS -- Kobe Bryant lasted just one quarter on a severely sprained left ankle, then watched Dwight Howard complete a go-ahead, three-point play with 90 seconds left Friday night to help the Los Angeles Lakers hold off the Indiana Pacers, 99-93.
Bryant started two nights after he was hurt but was ineffective. He went 0 for 4 in the first quarter, then went to the bench and did not return. He spent the second half holding a black box with wires running down to the injured ankle as he cheered on the Lakers (35-32).
Howard finished with 20 points and 12 rebounds. Metta World Peace had 19 points.
George Hill scored 27 points and Paul George had 20 for Indiana.
It looked like Indiana (40-25) would take advantage of Bryant's absence, pulling ahead early in the third quarter. But Howard's three-point play broke an 87-all tie and the Lakers closed the game on a 10-3 run.
After the final buzzer sounded, Bryant gave his teammates high-fives and hobbled into the locker room.
It wasn't clear whether Bryant would play Saturday night when Los Angeles returns home to play Sacramento.
Thunder blast Magic
OKLAHOMA CITY -- Kevin Durant scored 26 points and Russell Westbrook added 23 to help the Oklahoma City Thunder keep up their dominant play at home with a 117-104 victory over the Orlando Magic on Friday night.
The Thunder scored a season-high 73 points in the first half, shooting 64 percent from the floor and converting 18 of 22 free throws. Oklahoma City led by 27 in the second quarter before Orlando pulled to 73-56 at the break.
The Thunder led by 22 with 7 minutes to go in the third quarter before the Magic pulled within four midway through the fourth, prompting Oklahoma City coach Scott Brooks had to put his starters back on the floor.
Westbrook's third 3-pointer of the night with 2 minutes remaining helped assure the win and improve the Thunder to 30-4 at home this season.
Jameer Nelson led Orlando with 26 points, including 5-for-12 shooting on 3s.
