Miami, FL (Sports Network) - The way the Miami Heat are going, they may have home-court advantage locked up in the Eastern Conference by the end of the month.

Dwyane Wade had 23 points, six assists and five steals in Miami's 98-81 win over the Atlanta Hawks.

LeBron James was just 3-of-11 from the floor, but added 15 points, seven rebounds and seven assists for the Heat, who matched the fifth longest winning streak in NBA history.

With a win Wednesday against the 76ers in Philadelphia, Miami will become just the fourth squad to win 20 in a row.

Josh Smith tallied 15 points and six boards for Atlanta, which has dropped seven consecutive contests against Miami.
