Welcome back Dion Waiters!
The NBA is a better place when Waiters Island is rocking.

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.
With Kendrick Nunn, Justise Winslow and Goran Dragic all on the injured list, it was only a matter of time until Waiters’ name was called.
He’ll look to be a major contributor as the Heat look to best the Clippers for their third straight win.
