Byron Saenz said: "D Wade at home in his final season against Golden State, another classic game-winner".

The future Hall of Famer and three-time National Basketball Association champion showed just that in the Miami Heat's wild win over the Golden State Warriors on Wednesday night, as he hit an incredible buzzer-beater to give Miami a 1-point win. Waiters tossed it back to Wade, who shot-faked Durant in the air and then had his first try blocked by Jordan Bell. But Wade was quickly able to regain possession and fire off a shot all in basically the same movement. "Y'all get enough, '" Wade said, via USA Today. "And the one I make is a one-legged flick from my chest". But great to do it in front of the fans.

On Dec. 28, 2011, Wade took down the Charlotte Bobcats with 2.9 seconds left.

"I think the one cool thing, for me, is to be able to do this when you've got younger team-mates that heard about some of the things you do, but don't always get an opportunity to see it". Some of the Warriors watched the replay on the overhead screens with a look of disbelief, and after a moment Warriors star Stephen Curry came over to offer congratulations after presumably their last head-to-head meeting before Wade retires after this season.

The Times notes that only in "highly unusual cases" does the president weigh in to grant a topsecret security clearance. White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders told the Times: "We don't comment on security clearances".

Wade and Goran Dragic 27 points (7-of-11, 4-of-7 from 3-pt, 9-of-9 from FT) combined for 52 points, including 27 from 3-point range. "He hit every big shot, same as he did in Game 1 when we played them up there".

Klay Thompson scored 36 points for the Warriors. Let's take a look at them all, starting with his first game-winning buzzer beater nearly 15 years ago.

It was a fun game in the second half, and even though the Warriors lost, it was a fun game-winner from one of the game's legends. Miami was down by two with five seconds remaining when Wade produced one of the most majestic moments of his storied career.

In the Heat's final game before Christmas that season, Wade hit an incredible shot to give the Heat a 104-102 win over the Jazz.
