Toronto, ON (Sports Network) - Only the 1971-72 Los Angeles Lakers have had a longer winning streak than the Heat after Miami's 22nd consecutive victory on Sunday.

Ray Allen scored 16 of his 20 points in a one-sided fourth quarter to fend off the Toronto Raptors, 108-91 and keep the streak alive.

The Heat tied the 2007-08 Houston Rockets for the second longest streak in NBA history and can pass them on Monday when they visit the Boston Celtics for another tough road outing.

Dwyane Wade had 24 points and nine assists and LeBron James filled the stat sheet with 22 points, 12 rebounds and eight helpers in the victory. Chris Bosh chipped in 18 points against his former team, which has lost 11 in a row against Miami.

Rudy Gay scored 27 points to lead the Raptors, who were the first victim on the Heat's historic run back on Feb. 3.
