CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — Mike Miller scored a season-high 26 points on seven 3-pointers, and the injury-depleted Miami Heat beat the Charlotte Bobcats 89-79 on Friday night.

The Heat won despite playing without stars LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and Ray Allen, who were held out while recovering from injuries.

The 33-year-old Miller was 7 of 11 from beyond the 3-point arc.

Chris Bosh chipped in with 18 points and eight rebounds, and Rashard Lewis added 14 points for Miami, which improved to 3-2 since Chicago snapped its 27-game winning streak.

Miami (59-16) is within three victories of setting a new franchise record for wins in a regular season.

Rookie Michael Kidd-Gilchrist had 18 points and 14 rebounds for the Bobcats, who lost for only the second time in their last seven home games.
