LeBron James had 27 points, 12 rebounds and eight assists as the Miami Heat handed the Charlotte Bobcats their 16th straight defeat, 105-92 Wednesday night.
Dwyane Wade scored 29 points and had nine rebounds as Miami extended its winning streak to six.
One night after an emotional win over Oklahoma City, James and Wade made sure there would be no letdown against the Bobcats.
The Heat led 55-38 at halftime, but couldn't put the Bobcats away until late.
Charlotte cut the Miami lead to 84-82 when Gerald Henderson completed a three-point play with 7:16 left. But James knocked down a 3-pointer, Wade hit a pair of jumpers, and Shane Battier added a 3-pointer from the right corner to complete an 11-3 run that pushed the lead to 10.
Miami wasn't challenged again.
Kemba Walker had 27 points, and Ramon Sessions added 19 points for the Bobcats (7-21), who haven't won since Nov. 24.

CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Win and move on. That seems to be the Miami Heat's approach right now as it enters its first extended road stretch this season.

The Miami Heat took care of the Charlotte Bobcats pretty easily like most people thought they would last night winning 105-92. Dwyane Wade pulled a "dick head" move if you will. He came down the court and the defender Ramon Sessions fouled him on purpose. Wade apparently didn't like the move because he gave Sessions a swift kick in the nuts. Check out the video...
Apparently the ‘man-ru’e’ of not purposefully kicking another guy in the balls doesn’t apply to Dwyane Wade.Wade kneed Bobcats point guard Ramon Sessions right where it hurt Wednesday night. Looks like Wade did this move on purpose and he wasn’t even given a foul.
Dwyane Wade has been suspended for 1 game without pay for flailing his leg and making contact with the groin of Bobcats guard Ramon Sessions on Wednesday December 26. Wade will miss Miami’s Friday night game against the Pistons in Detroit.
Just when the Miami Heat appeared vulnerable, they've surged and again look like one of the league's best teams.
Wednesday night's game in Charlotte appears to be a mismatch as the Bobcats try to snap a 15-game losing streak overall and an eight-game skid against the Heat.
