Wade Leads Heat Past Spurs in Game 4 of NBA Finals
(SAN ANTONIO) — Dwyane Wade wasn’t a footnote in this game.
Wade had 32 points, six rebounds, four assists and six steals to help lead the Miami Heat past the San Antonio Spurs, 109-93, in Game 4 of the NBA Finals.
The series is now tied 2-2.
Wade, who has been dealing with knee issues for months, hadn’t scored more than 21 points all postseason, but in this game, he was money from the start.
Heat forward LeBron James led all players with 33 points.
“No matter how great you are…No matter what your resume is…To have a game like this it let’s you know that your still one bad, you know the next two words I can’t say my kids may be watching,” James said when referencing Wade’s performance. “That dude was amazing.”
Meanwhile the Heat as a team did a good job of forcing turnovers on the Spurs. The Spurs turned the ball over 18 times, leading to 23 Heat points.
Spurs guard Tony Parker, whose status was questionable before the game due to a hamstring strain, scored 15 points, but none in the second half.
Wade joins Isiah Thomas as the only players in NBA Finals history to record at least 30 points and six steals in a game.
Game 5 is Sunday in San Antonio. Tip-off is set for 8:00 p.m. Eastern, and can be seen on ABC.
