The Miami Heat have matched a franchise record fourteen straight wins after holding off Carmelo Anthony and the New York Knicks this afternoon. Melo put up 32 points but was limited to 3-11 shooting during the second half, and Miami was able to power through with a 99-93 win. Dwyane Wade had a big game for the Heat, putting up 20 points and adding 8 boards, but it was LeBron James who led his team in scoring. The King had 29 points, 11 rebounds, and 7 assists, coming just shy of a triple-double.
