Playing in his 1000th career game Dwyane Wade looked every bit ready for the post-season dropping 30 points with 9 assists and two blocks to beat Brooklyn.
“It was pretty obvious we were going to have to have other guys step up, but he did it in the context of what we’re doing,” coach Erik Spoelstra said of Wade, who knocked down a season-high 14 buckets on 19 attempts in 31 minutes and posted his third 30-point scoring game of the season, finishing just two points shy of matching a Heat season-high for scoring.
“He was just being extremely opportunistic and aggressive with his attack touches and looking for opportunities and weaknesses in the defense,” Spoelstra continued. “I said this maybe a week or two weeks ago. It really does appear he’s getting stronger as the season is going on.”
