Heat’s Dwyane Wade reacts to Cavs’ upset of Raptors

Dwyane Wade, Heat

The Cleveland Cavaliers earned an impressive 126-101 win against the Toronto Raptors on Monday. The Miami Heat’s Dwyane Wade couldn’t help it — he had to react to the Cavs’ upset victory.

Wade, who had a brief stint with the Cavs last season, seemed to be very pleased with what he saw from the game. It was one of those nights in the NBA, a game that spun sideways and produced an outcome only a few thought could happen.

Wade was also surprised to see the Raptors’ struggles on Monday. Toronto had beaten Miami on Sunday night, 125-104.

This season has been filled with excitement; a number of notable upsets have occurred in the NBA the past couple of days.

Sunday night, the Phoenix Suns defeated the Golden State Warriors in Oracle Arena in Oakland. The Suns have recently defeated both the Warriors and the Milwaukee Bucks, the leaders of their respective conferences.

As for the Raptors, they are currently second in the East standings while the Cavs are 14th.

Toronto continues to struggle. The Raptors are a modest 6-4 in their last 10 games and are slowly losing their chance to catch the Bucks for the top seed in the East.

Meanwhile, the Cavs had nothing to lose in this game. They are going to miss the playoffs, and they’re already looking forward to this year’s draft and offseason, when they will hit the reset button and begin building a team around Colin Sexton and the other complementary pieces they have.

Dwyane Wade won’t be playing basketball next season. His reset button refers to his life after basketball. On this particular night, however, Wade wishes he could have hit the reset button on Miami’s Sunday game against the Raptors. Had he hit the reset button, the Raps might have shot poorly.

As it was, they waited one night to struggle.
