With Michael Jordan watching from the Bobcats' bench, Jordan brand spokesman Dwyane Wade did a little bit of everything.

Wade was questionable for Friday's game after taking a hard fall last night in Orlando. Instead, he suited up and posted the fourth triple-double of his career with 22 points, 12 rebounds and 10 assists.

It was his first in more than five seasons. Each has been away from home.

Edging Charlotte in each of the first three quarters, the Heat pulled away late behind Eddie House, LeBron James and Wade's all-around effort for a 109-97 win.

James flirted with a triple-double for the second straight game, posting 19 points, eight rebounds and nine assists. He added 11 rebounds and eight assists to his ninth career 50-point game Thursday night against the Magic.

It was his first 50-point effort since March of 2009 at Sacramento and marked a high for the league this season.

The previous high of 47 was shared by Blake Griffin and Kevin Durant.

Interestingly enough, all nine of James' 50-point games have come on the road.

The Heat had six players in double-figures as Miami extended its winning streak to five games.
