Dwyane Wade slams Pacers for celebration after Game 2
Following the Heat’s Game 2 loss Tuesday, Dwyane Wade was a little salty when talking about the Pacers celebrating on Miami’s floor. For the second game in a row, the Heat found themselves clawing away at a late Pacers lead. This time they came up short, in a battle that got quite chippy at times. The Heat could have and probably should have stolen the game in the final minute, but didn’t. And the Pacers didn’t hide their elation about gutting out a big road victory, much to the chagrin of Wade.
“I heard they wanted to be like the Dallas Mavericks, in a sense,” Wade told reporters after the game. “I saw their little celebration at the end of that game. I don’t know if they didn’t expect to win, but every night we go out on the court, we expect to win.
“They say their identity, they say they want to be like Dallas. So they celebrated like Dallas, I guess.”
Yeah, D-Wade. The Heat have never been guilty of prematurely over-celebrating, right? I guess then this glitzy shindig was just a small get-together:
