Dwyane Wade had a season-high 40 points to lead the Heat past the Knicks, 106-98. New York fell behind by 16 after one quarter and trailed by as many as 22. While the Knicks pulled within three points in the 4th quarter, Wade helped seal the deal with a three-pointer with less than two mintes in the game. It was the 7th straight time the Heat defeated the Knicks, who have lost four times in their last six games, including a loss to the Heat earlier this month at home.

Amare Stoudemire led the Knicks with 30 points and Wilson Chandler added 21 points in the loss. No-name role-players LeBron James and Chris Bosh both had 18 points and 10 rebounds for Miami.
