Dwayne Wade's jumper with 0.1 seconds left in overtime gave Miami a 93-91 victory over the Indiana Pacers on Saturday night, extending the Heat home-court winning streak to 12 games.

Wade scored 28 points and LeBron James led two late comebacks by Miami, finishing with 27 for the Heat.

James helped force regulation by hitting a game-tying 3-pointer with 10.2 seconds left in regulation, then not allowing Indiana's Darren Collison to get a potential game-winning shot off at the other end.

Danny Granger's runner with 2:01 left in the extra session gave Indiana a 91-86 lead. The Pacers didn't score again, getting outscored 7-0 the rest of the way.

Chris Bosh scored 13 for the Heat. Granger led the Pacers with 19 points.

The win allowed the Heat (31-9) to stay within striking distance of Chicago Bulls (34-9), who also won Saturday night, for the best record in the Eastern Conference and entire league.

Miami now goes on the road to play the next three games against the three of the four top teams in the Eastern Conference. They play in Orlando on Tuesday, followed by a visit to Chicago on Wednesday and finally against Philadelphia on Friday.
