Video: Heat star Dwyane Wade flips lob pass to Justise Winslow
In reaching that 20-point margin, Miami’s tandem of Dwyane Wade and Justise Winslow connected on a spectacular play that brought the crowd at the American Airlines Arena to a frenzied ovation.
Wade lobbed a teardrop pass in transition to Winslow, who soared through the air and hammered home a massive one-handed dunk.
Although the two are having a friendly competition this season to see who gets the most dunks, the veteran All-Star wasn’t hesitant to drop a dime to the younger upstart to give their team a commanding lead over the best team in the East.
Here’s a clip of the play via the NBA official Twitter page:

Unfortunately, things would take a turn for the worse for Miami. The Bucks would go on to outscore the Heat in the second half, 71-36, en route to a 113-98 blowout.
To make matters worse, Wade also suffered a nasty fall later in the contest. The 37-year-old superstar landed awkwardly on his hip as he drove to the basket, but did return to the sidelines on his own strength after a brief checkup in the locker room.
Even with the loss, the Heat still have a hold of the final playoff spot in the Eastern Conference standings. Meanwhile, the Bucks remain three games ahead of the Toronto Raptors in the race for home court advantage all throughout the East’s side of the postseason bracket.
