D. Wade, Heat Put on Show Versus Wizards

2 Min Read

Dwyane Wade went behind-the-back to split a double team, did a full 360 in mid-air, and banked in a shot over Washington’s center, JaVale McGee to put the Heat up 36-27.  About 3 minutes later, Wade leaked out on the fast break to find a sprinting LeBron James for the alley-oop slam and that was all she wrote.  With momentum and the fans on their side, Miami never looked back.  D. Wade finished the ball game with a game high 26 points on a super efficient 11-18 shooting while adding 5 assists and 3 rebounds.  After the game, Wade commented on the Heat’s knack to entertain their road fans, “…that’s what the fans came to see.  They love to see their favorite players do amazing things.”

Aside from the two-man circus act that LeBron and D. Wade brought to Washington, there were other Heat players who contributed significantly under the radar.  Chris Bosh put up a very quiet 24 points and 11 rebounds and Shane Battier finally seemed to pull himself out of his recent shooting slump with 15 points, including three 3 pointers.  Miami’s offensive firepower was simply overwhelming at times, as the Wizards were embarrassed on their home floor.  The only Wizards player who seemed to show any kind of heart was JaVale McGee, who finished the game with 24 points and 13 rebounds.  However, even JaVale had to comment on the LBJ and D. Wade show, “Sometimes, [my teammates] see LeBron out there.  They see D-Wade out there…they say, ‘Oh my God, he’s going to work [us].”
