Miami, FL (Sports Network) - Despite playing their fifth game in seven days, the Miami Heat kept their season-high winning streak alive.

But it wasn't easy.

LeBron James and Dwyane Wade combined for 79 points, and the Heat tallied their 12th straight victory in a 141-129 double-overtime triumph over the Sacramento Kings.

James had a season-high 40 points, to go with a career-high 16 assists and eight rebounds, while Wade added 39 points, eight boards and seven assists for Miami, which hasn't lost since Feb. 1 when it fell to the Indiana Pacers.

Marcus Thornton netted 38 points to lead the Kings, who have dropped six consecutive tilts.
