ORLANDO, Fla. — LeBron James scored 21 points and handed out seven assists, Chris Bosh scored 18 points and the Miami Heat beat the Orlando Magic 120-92 on Wednesday night for their fifth straight victory.

James Jones scored 14 of his 17 points in the third quarter, when the Heat turned what was a five-point game into a runaway.

All five Miami starters sat out the fourth quarter for the second straight night, and Dwyane Wade sat out the whole way once again to give his knees more rest.

Michael Beasley scored 14 points and Chris Andersen added 10 for the Heat, who opened the game on a 16-0 run, lost the lead briefly in the second quarter, then dominated after halftime.
