CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) – Dwyane Wade had 22 points, 12 rebounds and 10 assists, showing no ill effects from a sore back, to lead the Miami Heat past the Charlotte Bobcats 109-97 on Friday night for their fifth consecutive victory.

Wade wasn’t sure he’d play up until about an hour before tipoff after getting hurt a night earlier, but he logged 40 minutes and led an efficient offense that shot 55 percent from the field.

LeBron James added 19 points, while former Bobcats guard Eddie House scored 16 and hit three consecutive 3-pointers early in the fourth quarter when the Heat took control.

Gerald Wallace broke out of his scoring slump with 25 points and Stephen Jackson also scored 25 for the Bobcats, who ran out of steam late as they returned from a 4-2 road trip.
