Nikola Vucevic had a career high 33 points but the Orlando Magic couldn’t stop the Miami Heat from behind the arc as the Heat left Amway Center with a 99-92 win.

It’s the 10th straight victory for the Heat (7-6) over Orlando (6-9). Miami connected on 12-of-26 three-pointers while the Magic made just three of their 16 attempts.

Miami, who were playing without Dwayne Wade and Norris Cole, got a season high 32 points from Chris Bosh and 24 from Mario Chalmers.

Shabazz Napier (12) and Shawne Williams (10) were the only other Heat players to score in double digits.

Vucevic added 17 rebounds for the Magic while Evan Fournier (11) and Victor Oladipo (14) chipped in with double-digit point efforts.

Two Vucevic free throws with 7:34 left tied the game at 77-77 but Miami would go on a quick 14-4 run to put enough distance between the two Southeast division rivals.

Magic forward Tobias Harris didn’t play as he sat out with a right calf strain. He is considered day-to-day.

Orlando will play seven of their next eight games on the road starting with a trip to Cleveland to face LeBron James and the Cavaliers Monday night.
