NBA: Wade did not travel on game-winner against Bobcats


Posted Dec 30 2011 9:07AM

NEW YORK (AP) -- The NBA says Miami's Dwyane Wade did not travel before his shot that beat Charlotte on Wednesday night.

Wade banked in a short jumper with 2.9 seconds left, and the Heat held on for a 96-95 victory. Because he appeared to make an extra move forward between stopping and releasing the ball, there was speculation he should have been called for a traveling violation.

But spokesman Tim Frank explains Thursday that: "Wade gathers the ball with his right foot on the floor, and step one is when both feet touch the floor simultaneously. He then steps with his right foot for step two."
