Dwyane Wade Stays Hot, Scores 15 of 32 Points in 4th Quarter vs The Blazers
The NBA leader in 4th quarter points scored 15 of his 32 in the 4th quarter to help the Heat pull out a 108-104 victory over the Portland Trailblazers on Wednesday night.
“This is what I love to do,” said Wade who is averaging 27.5 points per game in March. “This is the fun part of this game. I mean, obviously the last couple years I had to do what I had to do for that team. But now for this team I get to be a little bit back to my usual self, having the ball. I’m not going to do it right every time, but I like my chances most nights.”
This was Wade’s first time getting back to back 30 point games since 2012 and his streak of 7 games with 25+ is the longest he’s had since 2010.
Teammate Hassan Whiteside had the best quote about Wade last night, the past month and for his entire career.
“D-Wade is amazing,” Whiteside said. “Y’all can quote me on that. And that’s it.”
