Warrior Wonder: How do the Heat keep hitting epic daggers on Golden State?

New, comments

Miami knows how to create dramatic basketball when they face the Warriors.

NBA: Golden State Warriors at Miami Heat Steve Mitchell-USA TODAY Sports

Now, I know for a fact that the Miami Heat don’t always hit a dagger in the final seconds on the Golden State Warriors. Heck, the Warriors were able to steal a close one in Oracle Arena earlier this month.

But I definitely feel like I’ve had enough Miami clutch bombs at the expense of my hometown team to last a lifetime.

Dwyane Wade hit the latest one, a circus shot after getting blocked, to send the Dubs out of South Beach with an annoying loss. I’m dreading the phone call from my college roommate Julian, a Miami Heat lifer, who I’m sure celebrated that shot like it was Game 7 of the Finals.

Are you kidding me? Even Steph Curry and Quinn Cook had to just stand in slack-jawed amazement after that improbable shot sent American Airlines Arena into delirium.

How does this keep happening against this one damn franchise? I mean the guy who passed D-Wade the ball in this instance was Dion Waiters, a guy who drilled Klay Thompson for the win in 2017.

And of course, there was that one time when LeBron James, in full mercenary mode in Miami, daggered us in Oracle.

I’ve had enough Heat game winners for a lifetime. Thank goodness we have another game tonight to wash away this bad taste.

Also, I can’t be TOO mad at D-Wade for hitting the shot while rocking the Allen Iverson memorial cornrows. I’m okay with the legendary shooting guard getting a parting gift from the Golden Empire, but I don’t wanna see anymore Heat buzzer beaters for at least the next 10 years.
