LeBron James scored the go-ahead basket with 1:07 left in overtime, and Dwyane Wade came through with a game-sealing steal and dunk in the final seconds as the Miami Heat outlasted the Orlando Magic, 112-110, at Amway Arena.

James finished with 36 points, none bigger than his driving layup that snapped
a 106-106 deadlock, and 11 assists. Chris Bosh added 22 points on 10-of-15
shooting to help the Heat bounce back from consecutive losses to Detroit and
Milwaukee on its current road trip.

Wade finished with 21 points despite a 3-for-10 performance from the foul
line, but intercepted a telegraphed inbounds pass from the Magic’s J.J. Redick
with nine seconds remaining in overtime and dunked home the dagger that sent
Orlando to its sixth consecutive defeat.

The Magic lost despite holding an 11-point lead late in the third quarter and
a monster outing from Nikola Vucevic, who racked up 20 points and a franchise-
record 29 rebounds. Arron Afflalo posted 28 points in the setback, while
Redick made 9-of-13 shots — including five from 3-point range — in a 23-
point effort.
