Crazy stat on Dwyane Wade’s 3-point shooting in playoffs
Dwyane Wade has never been known for his three-point shooting, but this year’s postseason has been a different story.
The Miami Heat veteran has converted on just 28.4 percent of his three-point shots during his 13-year NBA career. Perhaps even more telling is the fact that he nailed just seven shots from beyond the arc during the entire 2015-16 regular season.
However, the 2016 postseason has seen a change in Wade’s play. While he’s still not a long-range shooter by any means, he converted on his first seven three-point shot attempts before missing his first one during Saturday’s loss to the Toronto Raptors.
According to Elias Sports Bureau, Wade had never made more than five three-pointers in a row during his 1,016-game NBA career:
Dwyane Wade has made 7 straight threes. According to Elias, Wade had never made more than 5 in a row in his 1,016-game career.

With the Heat currently down in their series 2-1, they might need a little more of his three-point shooting magic to advance to the next round.
