DWade on Heat Comeback: ‘We Don’t Even Know What Happened’

Dwyane Wade, LeBron James and the Miami Heat were apparently just as amazed as the rest of the planet by their incredible fourth quarter comeback in Game 5 against Chicago. From ESPN: “Having outscored the Bulls 64-47 in the fourth quarters of the previous three games of the Eastern Conference finals and having consistently outplayed them down the stretch en route to a 3-1 series lead, the Heat struck once again Thursday night with a sudden force and decisiveness that stunned the United Center crowd, ended the Bulls’ season and strengthened the notion that Miami’s star-laden team can perform at will. As was the case in several other games in the Eastern Conference finals, Derrick Rose was unable to produce any late-game heroics Thursday night. When the 83-80 victory was complete, sending Miami to the NBA Finals against the Dallas Mavericks, the Heat had concluded a 19-4 run that included 17 points, three 3-pointers, and two steals by James and Wade combined. But so stunning was the comeback that even the Heat seemed dazed by it. ‘We don’t even know what happened,’ Wade said. ‘I’m not going to lie to you and say we do. I can’t remember all the plays. I just remember the timeout, and Coach just looked at us and said, ‘We’ve done this before. We’ve been in games where we’ve gone on a 12-0 or 14-0 run. Just believe.’ We came out of that timeout believing if we get stops, we can give ourselves an opportunity. That’s all I remember.’”

    I work at a comedy club, and both this game, and the last series clinching Mavs game, went past 8PM with only a few minutes left, right when I go up. Both times, I came offstage to see that the 10-15 pt lead just evaporated. If it makes Wade feel any better, I don’t know what happened either.
