Heat star Dwyane Wade remembers Kobe Bryant’s game-winner on him after buzzer-beater vs. Warriors
Back in 2009 at Staples Center, Bryant hit a game-winning 3-pointer right over Wade at the buzzer to give the Los Angeles Lakers the win. Kobe banked the shot in and Wade was left speechless.
Well, Wade can’t be speechless anymore, as he hit a similar shot to beat the Warriors on Wednesday.

What an awesome moment for Dwyane Wade. The Heat desperately needed this win, as they entered Wednesday on a three-game losing streak.
Wade finished the night with 25 points in 26 minutes. The future Hall of Famer also registered seven rebounds and three assists.
The shot at the buzzer is going to dominate the headlines for the next few days. A one-legged shot off the glass to defeat the word champs is not something that you see everyday. Wade’s shot was definitely a lot harder than Bryant’s too.
It’s cool to see Dwyane Wade having a similar farewell tour like Kobe did back in the 2015-16 season.
With the win, the Heat are now 27-33 on the season, good for 10th place in the Eastern Conference standings. Wade deserves to play in the playoffs again and hopefully Miami can get there.
