Miami Heat Fans Give Dion Waiters Rousing Ovation as He Checks in vs. L.A. Clippers
- Updated: January 24, 2020
Welcome back Dion Waiters!
The NBA is a better place when Waiters Island is rocking.
— SLAM (@SLAMonline) January 25, 2020
The guard was met with a rousing ovation as he checked into the game in the first quarter, and immediately (in Waiters fashion) put up a 3-pointer that missed.
However, he went on to make two 3-pointers shortly after much to the delight of the crowd.
Waiters had missed the team’s first 44 games mostly due to disciplinary issues that had him suspended a total of three times by the team’s brass.
He’ll look to be a major contributor as the Heat look to best the Clippers for their third straight win.
