Dwyane Wade

Dwyane Wade says he will play Friday vs. Boston


The Celtics may be sitting guys — Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce will be out — but the Heat will be bringing back at least one star.

Dwyane Wade, who has missed the last six Heat games with a bruised kneecap, told the press he would return Friday night, reports Tim Reynolds of the Associated Press.

The early season reports of Wade’s demise were greatly exaggerated.

In the 20 games before he stopped playing due to injury Wade averaged 22.3 points a game on 55.5 percent shooting, with 5.6 assists and 5.2 rebounds a game. More than that, he provides another guy who can attack off the dribble and another athlete to trap and create turnovers with on defense.

No word on if LeBron James or Chris Bosh will play Friday, I’d be surprised if the Heat played all three together before the playoffs start. All three sat out Wednesday night in Washington (the Heat won anyway).

Bradley Beal drives around, dunks over Kristaps Porzingis (VIDEO)

If you’re a Knicks fan, the positive is that at least Kristaps Porzingis tried to make a play.

But he was not going to stop the athletic Bradley Beal with a full head of steam, and the result was a Beal dunking over Porzingis as he tries to block the attempt.

Beal wasn’t sharp, scoring 12 points on 5-of-14 shooting. The Knicks has an efficient Carmelo Anthony and that got them the win.
