Heat 100, Bobcats 96

MIAMI - Dwyane Wade scored 41 points, 10 of them in the final 81/2 minutes, to help the Miami Heat rally in the fourth quarter and beat the Charlotte Bobcats last night, 100-96.

Mario Chalmers scored 15 points and Shawn Marion 13 for the Heat, who extended their winning streak to four games.

Jason Richardson scored 24 points for Charlotte, but missed two free throws that would have tied the game with 32.3 seconds remaining.

Miami was down by seven points with 8 minutes, 21 seconds remaining when Wade went to work.

He drove the lane for dunks that left even the Bobcats' bench speechless, leaped over players for rebounds, and found Marion for a short jumper with 1:01 left that put the Heat ahead to stay.
