For a brief moment, it appeared the streak was in jeopardy.

And then the Miami Heat showed why they have won so many games in succession.

After the Toronto Raptors rallied to tie the score early in the fourth quarter, the Heat scored 12 consecutive points to secure their 108-91 victory Sunday at Air Canada Centre. The winning streak now moves to 22 straight, tying the 2007-08 Houston Rockets for second longest in NBA history.

Guard Dwyane Wade led the Heat with 24 points and nine assists while LeBron James added 22 points, 12 rebounds and eight assists. Center Chris Bosh, facing his former team, finished with 18 points.
