Yes, Dwyane Wade is playing at a high level again this year. Yes, he can still throw down a mean jam:
That dunk was Wade’s 24th on the year. He had 25 all of last year, but the difference between this year’s Wade and last year’s is noticeable.
Wade has missed just three games this year, and two of them have been to non-knee related injuries. Wade’s scoring averages are down from last year, but the reigning Eastern Conference Player of the Week is still balling out for the Heat at 34.
Wade finished this game with 22 points, 3 rebounds and 5 assists while Hassan Whiteside posted a triple double and Goran Dragic had a near triple double in the Heat’s 98-95 win over the Hornets. The Heat won six of their last seven.
