1. Wade Closes Career In Historic Fashion
Simply put, Wade made sure his one last game would be remembered forever.
Thanks to some fantastic passes, nifty finishes inside and a few threes, the 37-year-old tallied his fifth career triple-double.
And how he did it was so fitting.
Oh yeah, we should also note that Wade passed Elgin Baylor for 29th on the NBA’s all-time scoring list earlier in the third quarter.
One. Last. Milestone.
Thank you, D. Wade.
2. UD Sharp Once Again
In his first start since April 13, 2015, Udonis Haslem wasted little time to get going.
Here you go:
From there, Haslem continued to finish plays inside, clean the boards and, of course, draw charges.
Haslem finished with 12 points, 11 rebounds and two assists.
3. Jones Jr. Destroys The Rim
So…“Airplane Mode” was in full effect on Wednesday night.
In fact, all five of Derrick Jones Jr.’s field goals were dunks.
When it was all said and done, Jones Jr. accumulated 13 points on 5-of-9 shooting and four rebounds.
-In addition to knocking down his third career three, Bam Adebayo also came through with this monster jam with contact in the second quarter:
Adebayo ended up with 10 points on 4-of-7 shooting, six rebounds and a steal.
-Josh Richardson (Left Hip Strain) and Kendrick Nunn were inactive.
