I guess this wasn't one of the shots Dwyane Wade(notes) was practicing at 11 p.m. on Monday night. That's kind of weird — after catching the front-rim on a driving one-hander during the Miami Heat's 96-85 win over the Chicago Bulls in Game 3 of the Eastern Conference finals on Sunday night, you'd figure he'd make sure to work on that one. Judging by this miss in the opening minutes of Game 4, though ... not so much.
Clearly, this means he is neither a hard nor a smart worker, and is the worst. You've been right all along, people who hate the Heat! Sorry we all doubted you.
Jokes aside, Wade did struggle in Game 4, missing 11 of 16 field-goal attempts and finishing with 14 points, five rebounds, three blocks and two steals. Running buddy LeBron James(notes) had it going, though, posting a game-high 35 points (11-for-26 shooting), six rebounds, six assists and three steals to pace the Heat to a 101-93 overtime win. With the victory, Miami takes a commanding 3-1 lead in the best-of-seven Eastern Conference finals.
