NEW YORK, April 15 (UPI) -- Dwyane Wade netted eight of his 28 points in the fourth quarter Sunday and the Miami Heat pulled away from New York for a 93-85 victory.

Wade, returning from a sprained ankle, caught fire after the Heat had entered the fourth quarter tied with the Knicks at 71.

He finished 10-of-18 from the field with nine rebounds as Miami won in a potential preview of a first-round playoff series. It was only their second victory in 10 road games against opponents with winning records.

LeBron James supplied 29 points and 10 rebounds while Chris Bosh contributed 16 and 14 for Miami, which outrebounded the Knicks 47-33.

New York got 42 points from Carmelo Anthony but still lost for only the second time in six contests.
