WASHINGTON (AP) -- Dwyane Wade scored 26 points, Chris Bosh had 24 points and 11 rebounds, and LeBron James tallied 18 points and nine assists and the Miami Heat topped the Washington Wizards 106-89 Friday night.

Wade either scored or got the assist on 20 consecutive Heat points, starting with a drive to the basket that began with a behind-the-back dribble at the free throw line followed by a 360-degree move in the paint and ending with a shot off the glass.

Wade and James combined to score Miami's last 18 points of the first half.

The Heat bounced back from a loss at Orlando on Wednesday and are 1-1 on their six-game road trip. Miami has won 12 of 13 against the Wizards.

JaVale McGee scored 24 to lead the Wizards.
