Grading Miami Heat's 20th Straight Win vs. Philadelphia 76ers
USA TODAY Sports

The Miami Heat were pushed to the limit by the Philadelphia 76ers on Wednesday night, but emerged victorious by a score of 98-94, capturing their 20th straight victory in the process.

Erik Spoelstra's bunch looked lethargic for most of the night, playing with tired legs on the second night of a back-to-back, but their effort late was enough to get the job done.

The Sixers wound end up making a strong push in the fourth quarter, but the Heat's ability to convert in clutch situations in the game's final stanza was enough to slip by a Philadelphia team that fell to 24-40 with the loss.

LeBron James finished with a game-high 27 points, while his partner in crime, Dwyane Wade, chipped in 21 points on 7-of-14 shooting.

Next up for the Heat is a meeting with the eighth-seeded Milwaukee Bucks on Friday night.
