Heat 103, Timberwolves 92

MIAMI -- Dwyane Wade scored 24 points and LeBron James added 22 to lead the Heat to a 103-92 victory over the Minnesota Timberwolves on Tuesday night at American Airlines Center.

Miami also got double-figure scoring from Chris Bosh (15) and Mario Chalmers (12). The Heat's home stand concluded with a 4-2 record.

The Heat's 16-6 overall record is the same mark they had at this point last season.

The Heat made 13 3-pointers, marking the sixth time this year that they hit double figures in that category. Miami's long-range accuracy -- 52 percent -- made up for being outrebounded, 52-24.

Meanwhile, the Wolves (12-11), who have missed the playoffs the past eight consecutive seasons, lost their second in a row after their four-game win streak was snapped on Monday.

Kevin Love led the Wolves with 18 rebounds and 11 points. Andrei Kirilenko had 22 points, and Nikola Pekovic had 18 points and 12 rebounds.

NOTES: Wolves forward Love played his 13th game of the season. He missed nine games due to a thumb injury and an illness. ... Ricky Rubio, the Wolves' point guard who came back last week after missing nine months due to a knee injury, sat out the Heat game. Since his return, Rubio looked fairly strong in his first game before struggling Monday night in Orlando. The Wolves' plan, for now, is to rest him on the second night of back-to-back games. ... Wolves coach Rick Adelman on rookie point guard Alexey Shved: "He's a deceiving player. People don't think he's fast, but he continues to get around guys. He has great vision. The one area where he can and will get better is shooting the ball. He's a smart kid, and he listens. I think having (fellow Russian) Andrei Kirilenko with us has helped him along." ... Tuesday's game was a homecoming for Jose Juan Barea, the Wolves' backup point guard. Barea played his high school ball at Miami Christian. ... Up next, the Wolves face their second consecutive \2012 NBA finalist when they play host to the Oklahoma City Thunder on Thursday. ... The Heat play at Dallas on Thursday. It will be the Heat's first road game since their Dec. 4 loss at Washington.
