A single last dance. A single last game winner?
16-year veteran Dwyane Wade continued his retirement tour Wednesday night time by sinking a 1-footed fadeaway 3-pointer as time expired to give the Heat a 1-level gain about the defending-champion Warriors.

It was a virtuoso efficiency for the 37-year-outdated, who concluded the night time with 25 details (on 10-for-17 shooting), seven rebounds and a few helps in 26 minutes of motion. Wade’s game-winner was 1 of 5 3-tips he built on the night time, and he shot 62.5 per cent from length.
There was no superior way for the a few-time champ to cap off his efficiency than by knocking down the third game-winning buzzer-beater of his job – his 1st since he strike a 1-footed running 3-pointer towards the Bulls 10 seasons ago.
Poetically, Wade celebrated his game-winner towards the Warriors the exact way he celebrated towards the Bulls in 2009, leaping atop the scorers’ table to the adoration of the sold-out crowd at American Airways Arena.
With the gain, the Heat go to 27-33 on the season and are now just a 50 percent game at the rear of the Hornets for the eighth seed in the Eastern Meeting.
With Goran Dragic again from injury and Wade continuing to participate in at a high degree, Miami is in a good posture to make a drive for the last playoff place – a fitting ship off for the long run Hall of Famer.
