OAKLAND, Calif. -- Dwyane Wade didn't pass up a chance to play against 2-6 Golden State. Who could?!
That's what I was thinking just before the game. Afterwards, I was thinking something like, "Why didn't the Heat (8-2) resign Dorell Wright?"
Seriously, Wright makes $3.8 million this season. Mike Miller is getting paid $5 million.
ANYWAY, the Warriors spoiled Wade's return with a 111-106 win in overtime at Oracle Arena. That place isn't pretty but it sure is loud. Some thoughts from the game...
--No.1. I hate these late-night games on the West Coast. It's 2:49 a.m. on the East Coast as I type this and I've somehow forgotten how to type.
--The Heat had 22 turnovers. Not good.
--Wade was 1 of 8 in the fourth quarter and the Heat 2 of 17 as a team.
--LeBron, who's been playing better than anyone in the league over the last two weeks, only didn't attempt a field goal in the fourth quarter. WHAT THE?
--Spoelstra was mad at the end of the game. I thought he was going to head butt me when I asked him about the turnovers.
--The Heat was 26 of 40 from the free-throw line.
--Chris Bosh was 2 of 6 from the free-throw line and while he led the Heat with six points in overtime he didn't have a very good game overall.
--LeBron entered the game 0 of 2 from three-point range on the season. He was 0 of 2 from three-point range in overtime and both attempts were terrible shots.
