“I hope no one read my lips,” said Dwyane Wade on the words he used after scoring 8 of his 14 points in the 4th and hitting the game-winning jumper with 21.9 seconds left against the Grizzlies on Sunday.

“It was just one of those games for me where I had no energy and I was struggling,” added Wade. “My body didn’t feel great. I made a couple boneheaded plays before that. Up was the only way I could go. Then in the moment to make those plays, it felt good. Real good.”

It felt real good for his coach too.

“Dwyane’s uncanny,” Heat coach Erik Spoelstra said. “He can play absolutely horrible stretches of basketball and have the quickest memory, and all of a sudden get to the last 2 minutes and he has incredible confidence. … Sometimes when you don’t know where to go, that’s always a great option, having a Hall of Famer.”

And it felt bittersweet for former teammate of 7 years Mario Chalmers, “I’m used to seeing things like that.” .
