Wade made 13 of 22 shots from the floor, but he also had a team of high seven assists as Miami improved to 4-2 on the year and 3-0 at the American Airlines Arena.
LeBron James had another solid effort as the best player in the NBA contributed 18 points, six assists, and five rebounds on the night. Chris Bosh, who helps makeup the rest of the 'Big Three', added 12 points and six rebounds after missing the teams last game in Toronto.
Blake Griffin had a huge night in defeat as the LA Clippers star forward scored 27 points and grabbed 14 rebounds. All-Star Chris Paul added 11 points and dished out a game high 12 assists, but the hot shooting Heat couldn't be stopped, especially late in the game when it mattered most.
Miami will host Boston on Friday night in the second of a four game home stand. Los Angeles will travel to Houston on Friday for the last game on their current road trip.
