DWYANE Wade played a solid game in his return to Miami, helping lift the Chicago Bulls to a 98-95 victory over the Heat on Thursday (Friday, Manila time).

In his first game against the Heat in Miami, Wade played 32 minutes and scored 13 points, pulled down seen rebounds and made four assists.

Wade calmly sank two free throws off a Justise Winslow foul with 13.7 seconds remaining and Chicago notched its fifth win in nine outings.

Jimmy Butler led the Bulls in scoring with 20 points, while Rajon Rondo had a double-double of 16 points and 12 rebounds.

Robin Lopez scored 16, Doug McDermott added 13 and Nikola Mirotic had 10 points for Chicago.

Hassan Whiteside had a huge double-double of 20 points and 20 rebounds but not enough to halt the Miami skid, now at three games.
