MIAMI (AP) -- LeBron James scored 31 points and Chris Bosh added 23 to lead Miami past Charlotte 99-94 Monday night, the Heat's 10th consecutive victory against the Bobcats. Dwyane Wade had 20 points and 12 rebounds for Miami, which has won nine of its last 10 at home. James was 13 for 14 from the field, for a career-best 93-percent shooting. The Heat improved to 19-3 on their home floor. Ramon Sessions scored 18 points for Charlotte, which lost its fourth in a row and 12th in the last 14. Ben Gordon had 16 points as six Bobcats players scored in double digits. Neither team shot well from on 3-pointers as Miami was 1 for 12 and Charlotte 8 of 25. The Bobcats scored nine straight points to take a 72-69 lead with 9:25 left. Miami countered with a 14-2 run -- with James scoring six points -- to go ahead 83-74 with 4:59 remaining. Sessions made two free throws to pull the Bobcats to 89-87 with 1:38 left, but James passed Bosh for a dunk to make it 91-87 with 1:13 on the clock. Following a timeout, Kemba Walker missed a 3-pointer and James grabbed a rebound, then drove for a layup to give Miami a six-point lead with 37 seconds left. Charlotte got no closer than five points the rest of the way. Charlotte played without rookie small forward Michael Kidd-Gilchrist, who suffered a concussion against Houston on Saturday night. Gilchrist will need to pass the NBA's post-concussion protocol before he'll be cleared to play. James had 21 points on 9-of-10 shooting through three quarters to help Miami take a 66-63 lead. Wade had nine points and seven rebounds to help Miami take a 47-43 halftime edge. James scored 15 points, hitting all six of his first-half field-goal attempts. James scored 13 points to help Miami build a 22-21 lead after one quarter. NOTES: Miami remained in Toronto to watch the Super Bowl at a local sports bar following Sunday's win against the Raptors. They arrived back in South Florida at about 3 a.m. Monday morning. ... The Heat returned home to begin a five-game homestand after playing 10 of 12 on the road. ... James and Walker entered the game leading their respective team in scoring, assists and steals. The only other NBA players to lead their team in those categories were Golden State's Stephen Curry, Phoenix's Goran Dragic and Cleveland's Kyrie Irving.
