2009: Dwayne Wade Scores Career-high 55 vs the Knicks
It seems like all the great ones have career-highs and career-games against the Knicks. And on April 12th of 2009, a pre Big 3 Dwayne Wade went off for a career-high 55 points in a 122-105 win over the Knicks.
“It was unbelievable,” Knicks Coach Mike D’Antoni said. “He was hitting shots that, once he starts, you can’t stop him.”
After the game, Wade thanked D’Antoni — his coach during that summer’s Olympics — for “helping me get my confidence back and believing in me.”
When asked about a comment D’Antoni made to him about his future, Wade declined to repeat it.
“He told me not to say,” Wade said, then added with a grin, “It was something about LeBron.”
