There was just something different about this night at AmericanAirlines Arena. An electric buzz in the atmosphere as Miami Heat fans eagerly awaited the return of their favorite son.
They did not have to wait too long as with five minutes remaining in the first quarter of the home clash with the visiting Milwaukee Bucks, Wade came off the bench to loud cheers.
A short time later, he nailed a three-pointer, it was to be his only field goal of the night. Truth is it really did not matter. For one magical night all was right with the basketball wold in South Florida. Wade was back home in Miami, Wade County was alive again. The crowd roared every time he touched he ball, every time he did anything. It was a fitting tribute worthy of South Florida’s greatest athlete.
Numbers did not tell the story on this night , D Wade totally left his stamp on this Heat win. He chased down a critical block late in the fourth quarter on the way to Miami’s 91-85 victory.
Milwaukee guard Eric Bledsoe tried to cut the Heat’s lead to two points with approximately 30 seconds left in the contest, but Wade dug deep and did what we have become accustomed to with a block on the layup. Miami prevailed 91-85 and Heat fan;s went home deliriously happy that the franchises favorite son was back home in Heat colors. All seemed right with the basketball world in the 305.
