MIAMI (AP) — LeBron James finished with 30 points, nine rebounds and nine assists despite sitting some of the second half after twisting his left ankle, Dwyane Wade added 27 points and the Miami Heat beat the Utah Jazz 117-94 on Monday night.

It was Miami’s 17th straight victory over a Western Conference opponent, the second-longest regular-season streak by an Eastern Conference team in NBA history. Boston won 20 straight over the West during a nine-month span of 1973.

Chris Bosh scored 20 points for the Heat, who moved within two games of Indiana for the East lead. Miami plays host to the Pacers on Wednesday.

Alec Burks scored 31 points for Utah, which got 17 from Derrick Favors.
