Wade Made His Point But Still Loses To The Cavaliers

Dwayne Wade won his match-up against Kobe Bryant of one of the best teams in the NBA, the Los Angeles Lakers. And he's trying to win another against another best player on top of the standings. This time against Lebron James of the Cleveland Cavaliers.

Wade made the game interesting with his team leading for most of the game. But in the end, the Miami Heat lost to the Cleveland Cavaliers 93-86, upsetting Wade's plan for the Heat to be first team to beat the Cavaliers in their homecourt.

James played more than 42 minutes and scored 33 points on 12-of-19 shooting with 9 assists. Wade played for almost 40 minutes, making 12 of his 25 shots for 29 points with 8 assists and 2 steals.

The Heat was leading 67-58 at the start of the 4th quarter. James tied the score 77-77 with a free-throw 6 minutes into the the game and led his team to an 8-0 run for the next 4:30 minutes. With 11 seconds left in the game with the Cavs leading 86-90, Wade had a chance to make his team within one point but he missed his 3-point shot attempt from the left corner.

Delonte West got the rebound who was quickly fouled by Mario Chalmers. West made his first free-throw attempt. He missed his second attempt and Anderson Varejao tipped in Chalmers miss shot for the final score.
