MIAMI, Feb. 10 (UPI) -- Dwyane Wade
led a fourth-quarter charge that enabled the Miami Heat to pull away Sunday and record a 107-97 win over the Los Angeles Lakers.
Wade ended with 30 points, including 16 in the final frame when the Heat went on a 19-6 run to break open a close game.
LeBron James finished with 32 points and seven rebounds as Miami reeled off its fifth straight victory.
Chris Bosh (12 points, 11 boards) and Mario Chalmers (13, four, three assists) also played key roles for the Heat.
Kobe Bryant's 28 points and nine assists, Earl Clark's 18 points and nine rebounds, and Dwight Howard's 15 points and nine boards weren't enough to keep the Lakers from falling to 9-18 on the road.
