Miami Heat vs. Toronto Raptors Game 4 Recap: Wade Does It Again

Dwyane Wade Raptors

(Miami, FL) — Four games, three overtimes, this series has turned into an absolute bloodbath.

“I don’t think there’s any doubt this game was going to go into overtime,” Heat coach Erik Spoelstra said after the game. “It’s just one heck of a series.”

Superstar Dwyane Wade came through again in the clutch as the Miami Heat were down two with just 12.6 seconds remaining.

Wade drove past two defenders and beautifully rolled home a finger roll, to send the game into overtime.

“It looked dark for a minute,” Wade said, “but there was no quit in us.”

The three-time NBA champion said he used himself as a “decoy” in that overtime, after exerting himself in that fourth quarter.

Wade finished the evening with 30 points, four rebounds, and two assists.

“I was tired,” Wade said. “I was using myself as a decoy. All eyes were on me, and I wasn’t going to force anything.”

The Heat ended up beating the Toronto Raptors by a score of 94-87, as the biggest basket of the night came from point guard Goran Dragic, who made a crucial and-one layup to seal the game.

Dragic finished with 15 points, six rebounds, and four assists.

The series will shift to Toronto on Wednesday night as the Heat prepare for a must-win Game 5 at 8 pm ET.
