SALT LAKE CITY (AP) - Dwyane Wade had 32 points and 10 assists, and the Miami Heat extended their longest winning streak of the season to four by beating the Utah Jazz 119-110 Saturday night.

Wade made 21 of 23 free throws and Miami improved to 4-1 on a six-game road trip, which concludes Monday against the Los Angeles Lakers. The Heat are also 4-2 since Ron Rothstein took over as interim coach for Pat Riley.

The game took nearly three hours, as the teams shot a combined 99 free throws. The Heat were far better at the line, going 42-for-45 while giving the Jazz their first three-game losing streak of the season.

Carlos Boozer led the Jazz with 29 points and 14 rebounds. Matt Harpring scored 18 points for Utah.
