    Inspired by double-doubles from Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh, the Miami Heat won their 16th consecutive game against the Toronto Raptors, prevailing 107-102 at AmericanAirlines Arena.

    The Raptors have not beaten the Heat for more than four years and last won in Miami on November 19, 2008.

    Miami (3-0) are the only remaining unbeaten team in the Eastern Conference and were led in all-around play by Wade, who had 19 points, 11 rebounds and seven assists.

    Elsewhere, DeMarcus Cousins scored 34 points and grabbed 17 rebounds, leading Sacramento to a 98-92 victory over Los Angeles.

    Rudy Gay added 25 points, seven rebounds and six assists for Sacramento, who snapped a five-game losing streak against the Clippers. Cousins' bucket inside gave the Kings an 87-84 lead with 4:43 remaining and they never trailed again.

    Carmelo Anthony became the 40th player in NBA history to reach 20,000 career points as New York blew a 15-point lead before pulling out a 96-93 victory over Charlotte.

    Anthony finished the game with 28 points, forward Amar'e Stoudemire added 17 and 10 rebounds, while guard Iman Shumpert added 15.
