Wade was no doubt impressed with the way the Clippers managed to bounce back from a 25-point third-quarter deficit to defeat the Utah Jazz, 131-119, in Game 6 of their series.
The fact that the Clippers managed to make that comeback without having Kawhi Leonard available made the surge even more remarkable.
George put together a strong performance in the win by contributing 28 points, nine rebounds, seven assists and three steals. That effort helped wipe away some of the frustration that George undoubtedly felt after the Clippers collapsed in last year’s conference semifinals after holding a 3-1 lead over the Denver Nuggets.
Wade’s classy gesture may have not been surprising to the Heat fan base, but it had to come with a twinge of pain to the future Hall of Famer since he recently purchased an ownership share in the Jazz.
