Jonathan Daniel/Getty Images(MIAMI) — The Miami Heat had to ace a tough test to extend their winnining streak and they did.

Dwyane Wade scored 11 of his 24 points in the final five minutes to help the Miami Heat get past the Cleveland Cavaliers, 109-105 on Sunday.

The Heat (40-14) wasted a 22-point second half lead and were down by eight with under six minutes to play, but recovered to win their 11th straight game.

“We’re a veteran ballclub and we’ve been in every situation that an NBA game can offer us,” Heat forward LeBron James said. “We don’t get too high, we don’t get too low, we just play the 48 minutes out and see where it takes us.”

James scored 28 points, but missed a layup with under a minute left with the Heat up by two that rebounded right to Chris Bosh, and Miami got another basket on the possesion to seal the victory.
