Watch: Referee inadvertently pokes Heat guard Dwyane Wade in the eye

Wednesday December 17th, 2014

A referee appeared to poked Dwyane Wade in the eye during Tuesday night's game between the Heats and Nets in Brooklyn. 

As Wade approached the ball out of bounds, the official raised his right hand, with one of his fingers appearing to make contact with Wade's eye.

The official then briefly kept both arms raised in the air, apparently not realizing that he had poked Wade, before reaching for the Heat guard.
