Dwyane Wade’s driving layup forces overtime, where Heat beat Pacers

4 Comments

The Heat and Pacers played a thriller down to the wire Monday. They didn’t always play it well, there was plenty of slop, but both teams were putting out a genuine effort.

In the end, Miami had a little bit more — they had Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh.

Bosh had 31 points on the night, but Wade had the dynamic plays — including the layup that forced overtime. With 2.7 seconds left Paul George wanted to be aggressive, but he was trailing Wade coming off a Bosh screen and when Wade turned toward the rim nobody was in his way. He made the play.

Wade also had a couple of points in overtime and a key tip of a rebound after a missed free throw. However, this was his most spectacular play of the day, a turn-back-the-clock moment.
