What’s more satisfying than hitting a game-winner against a former teammate? How about hitting a game-winner for an injury-riddled, mediocre team against the best team in the league riding on a seven-game win streak?
“I knew it was good,” Said Waiters, who did his best Run DMC pose after knocking down a game-winning three against the Warriors with 0.6 seconds left in regulation. “He let me get to my shot.”
The shot also matched Waiters career-high of 33 points, which was set in his last game.
“He’s not scared. He’s not afraid,” Heat coach Erik Spoelstra said. “He’s fearless. He wants those moments as much as anybody.”
