(AP) - Dwayne Wade, returning from a two-game absence, scored a season-high 41 points to lead the Miami Heat to a 98-90 victory over Memphis on Saturday night and hand the Grizzlies their sixth straight loss.

Wade, who missed the previous two games after having his wisdom teeth pulled, shot 15-for-24 from the field and added five rebounds and seven assists.

Mike Miller and Hakim Warrick each scored 20 points to led Memphis, which has dropped nine of 10.

Pau Gasol , playing his second game after missing the Grizzlies' first 22 due to a broken bone in his foot, scored 11 points in 17 minutes.
