With LeBron James back in South Beach, Dwyane Wade stole the show Monday night.
Wade had a game-high 32 points against his former teammate, pushing the Miami Heat to a big 106-92 win against the Cleveland Cavaliers.
LeBron was no slouch, finishing with 26 points in the loss.
Per the Sun-Sentinel:
With Wade setting the tone with 21 of his 32 points in the first half, with (Hassan) Whiteside adding 16 points and 11 rebounds, and with Luol Deng, Henry Walker and even Michael Beasley helping limit James to a 3-of-11 start from the field, before he came around to close with 26 points on 8-of-19 shooting, the Heat improved to 2-1 against the Cavaliers after also handling Cleveland on Christmas Day at AmericanAirlines Arena. […] Wade was sublime, closing at 13 of 18 from the field.
“You always want to bring your best against the best,” Wade said. “We needed this one. We couldn’t lose this game on our home floor. No matter who was coming, we had to win this game. We’ve got enough to win games. We’ve just got to understand how to win games.”
James said Wade had a familiar look. […] “When his pull-up is going,” he said of Wade’s jumper, “you can’t do much with him.”
