Dwyane Wade‘s #OneLastDance wouldn’t be complete without some signature moments, and the world ended up receiving one tonight in the Miami Heat’s home game versus the defending NBA champion Golden State Warriors.
With 0.8 seconds left in the game, Wade threw up a one-legged circus shot from three-point range and ended up banking it in off the backboard to win the game for the Heat 126-125. For Wade, the clutch dagger three-pointer was his fifth career buzzer-beater, per ESPN Stats & Info. It was also Wade’s first buzzer-beater in nearly 10 full years. The last time the Warriors lost on a shot at the buzzer was courtesy of LeBron James in January 2009.
Here’s a look at Wade’s thrilling game-winner:
Wade finished the game with 25 points, 7 rebounds and 3 assists on 10-17 shooting from the field, including 5-8 from three-point range. Prior to the buzzer beater, Wade also knocked down a huge three-pointer following a four-point play from Golden State Warriors superstar forward Kevin Durant. Wade scored 10 of his 25 points in the fourth quarter.
The shot was very popular among several athletes on Twitter, who decided to share their personalized reactions to the shot:

One of the few times I've genuinely seen Dwade that surprised after a shot. And off one leg like Kobe hit on him for gw years ago. For him to do it in his last year. Nothing but respect.. #onelastdance
