In last night’s Bucks-Heat game, Miami star guard Dwyane Wade appeared to have had enough with the whole close ballgame nonsense.
In a span of two minutes in the third quarter, Wade made two statement dunks that gave Miami the lead for good.
The first of the two dunks came with the game tied 53-53. Wade got the ball at the top of the key and charged the rim, taking flight a step or two inside the free throw line and finishing with a one-handed slam that put the Heat ahead.
The second slam occurred just two minutes later when Wade sailed in for an offensive rebound following a Mario Chalmers miss.
Bucks guard Monta Ellis assumed he didn’t have to box anyone out.
Clearly, he had forgotten from two minutes earlier that Dwyane Wade can jump pretty high.
The result was a great put-back dunk by Wade that prevented Milwaukee from getting a crucial stop on Miami who put the Bucks permanently in the rear-view mirror.
