Dwyane Wade’s pull-up jumper with 21.9 seconds remaining in the fourth quarter Sunday night completed the Miami Heat’s come-from-behind 100-97 win against the visiting Memphis Grizzlies.
Miami was losing by 16 at one point, and down by 6 with just 1:31 left. Wow. https://t.co/NRve8PdAFA

Scoring-wise, Chris Bosh led the way for Miami with a game-high 22 points.
The Heat used an 11-0 run to conclude matters.
Per the AP
“Dwyane’s uncanny,” Heat coach Erik Spoelstra said. “He can play absolutely horrible stretches of basketball and have the quickest memory, and all of a sudden get to the last 2 minutes and he has incredible confidence. … Sometimes when you don’t know where to go, that’s always a great option, having a Hall of Famer.”
Chris Bosh led the Heat with 22 points, Gerald Green added 16 — three of them on free throws after Memphis’ Matt Barnes fouled him behind the arc with 1:32 left — and Luol Deng scored 15 for Miami. The Heat trailed 75-59 late in the third quarter before coming back.
Wade got Miami within one on a drive with a minute left, then got the night’s biggest shot to fall one possession later. […] “I knew the ball’s going to be in my hands … and I was able to get a couple things to go,” said Wade, who scored 14 for Miami.
