MIAMI — Dwyane Wade scored a season-high 40 points, LeBron James and Chris Bosh each finished with 18 points and 10 rebounds, and the Miami Heat held off a big fourth-quarter rally to beat the New York Knicks 106-98 on Tuesday night.

Zydrunas Ilgauskas scored 14 points and grabbed 10 rebounds for Miami, which is 15-1 in its last 16 games and has beaten the Knicks seven straight times.

Miami led by as many as 22, then saw the lead cut to three before Wade's step-back 3-pointer with just inside of 2 minutes remaining helped save the Heat.

Amare Stoudemire scored 30 points for the Knicks, who were outrebounded 50-32. Wilson Chandler added 21 and Raymond Felton scored 15.
