LeBron James just missed a triple-double with 24 points, 11 assists and nine rebounds as the Heat cruised past the Magic 108-94 in Orlando. Miami is now just six wins shy of tying the NBA-record for most consecutive victories. Miami is back in action Wednesday night on the road against the Chicago Bulls.
