Wade Comes Up Empty

Dwyane Wade draws contact but doesn't get the foul call on the Heat's final possession.

— The NBA says Dwyane Wade was not fouled on Miami's final offensive play of the Heat loss to Charlotte in Game 5 of the teams' Eastern Conference first-round series.

Wade thought he was fouled with 2.6 seconds left as he tried to tie the game while being defended by the Hornets' Cody Zeller and Courtney Lee. No call came, and the Heat lost 90-88.

Miami trails the series 3-2, going into Game 6 at Charlotte on Friday.

The league's review of events in the last 2 minutes of play also states the Heat did not foul Zeller on an inbounds play in the final seconds, another call Miami wanted before time expired.
