Dwyane Wade went 5-for-8 from three-point range in Wednesday's win over the Warriors.
Dwyane Wade banked a game-winning three-pointer off one foot as time expired to give the Heat a 126–125 win over the Warriors on Wednesday night.
Wade had an initial attempt blocked by Golden State center Jordan Bell with just over one second left. But the ball fell back to Wade, who flung a last-ditch shot that miraculously went in.
"It’s crazy," Wade told reporters after the game. "Great to do it in front of fans. For a moment, I told [Warriors guard] Steph [Curry], I just said I needed this one on my way out. Y’all get enough."
Wade, not typically known for his three-point prowess, finished 5-for-8 from beyond the arc. He dropped 25 points while going 10-for-17 from the field in 26 minutes during the victory.
The shot marked the fifth game-winning field goal as time expired of Wade's career, and his first since a 2009 buzzer-beater against the Bulls in a double-overtime thriller.
"It was cool," Wade said. "The one thing cool for me was to be able to do this when you have younger teammates that heard about some of the things you do, but don’t always get an opportunity to see it. So it was cool to be able to do it in front of them."
Wade is in his final season with the Heat. Several NBA players paid homage to the 13-time All-Star on Twitter, praising him for another feat of greatness in a Heat uniform.
