Dwyane Wade News
Trans. Nov 2 4:28 ET (Nov 2 4:28 ET ) NEW YORK (Reuters) - Miami Heat guard Dwyane Wade joined the chorus of people criticizing why some sports events were taking place in New York following the devastation caused by superstorm Sandy. Speaking to reporters before Friday night's National Basketball Association clash against the New York Knicks at Madison Square Garden, Wade said the game should have been postponed. "I just felt that (there were) bigger things to be concerned about than us being here to play a basketball game," he told reporters. "Obviously, sports ... ...
Tim Duncan had 23 points and 11 rebounds, and the San Antonio Spurs never trailed against the Miami Heat, weathering a sluggish third quarter for an intense and emotional 111-87 victory Thursday. Tony Parker scored 17 points, including 14 in a wild first half, Boris Diaw added 16 and Kawhi Leonard had 11 for San Antonio, which has won five straight. Chris Bosh had 24 points, LeBron James added 19, Dwyane Wade had 16 and Michael Beasley 11 for Miami.
The Miami Herald's Joe Goodman reported that Dwyane Wade was unavailable to the media pregame Thursday, leaving him as a risk for a late scratch against the Spurs, but then reported that Wade would start for the Heat.
The Scoop:It sounds like he'll play despite missing his media session, but we're still a little leery, given his injury history and the number of games he's missed this season. But for now, it appears that he's in the starting lineup and is good to go tonight. We'll let you know if his status changes before tip off.
Dwyane Wade played through his sore knees (and body) on Thursday, hitting 7-of-15 shots for 16 points, three rebounds, seven assists and a steal in 36 minutes of a loss to the Spurs.
The Scoop:Wade sat out on Monday in the first of a back-to-back, but has played well over his last two games. With his next one coming after a day off, look for him to be back on the floor against the Bulls on Sunday.
Dwight Howard scored 22 points, grabbed a game-high 16 rebounds and defended LeBron James on a missed final shot that gave Houston a 106-103 NBA victory over Miami. One night after James scored a career-high 61 points, the four-time NBA Most Valuable Player managed only 22 Tuesday as the Rockets snapped the defending NBA champion Heat's eight-game win streak. James Harden added 21 points and a game-high 11 assists while Patrick Beverley and Terrence Jones scored 19 points each and Chandler Parsons added 10 points and eight assists for the Rockets. Dwyane Wade and reserve Michael Beasley each scored 24 points to lead Miami, which made a 16-3 run in the fourth quarter to equalize at 91-91.
Dwight Howard had 22 points and 16 rebounds, James Harden added 21 points and the Houston Rockets held LeBron James in check Tuesday night in a 106-103 win over the Miami Heat. Still, the Heat cut their deficit to three when Michael Beasley hit a 3-pointer with 21.2 seconds left. Dwyane Wade had 24 points for the Heat after sitting out Monday night. Miami never led, but tied it twice in the fourth quarter.
LeBron James, Chris Bosh and Pat Beverley all joined the Heat before the 2010 season. Yup, James and Bosh joined Dwyane Wade in Miami and you know what happened. Beverley didn't make the final roster and ended up playing in Russia before before eventually joining the Rockets during last season. They took different roads to Tuesday night but Beverley was finally on the floor with the Heat, he was just wearing a Rockets jersey.
The Scoop:LeBron lit up for a franchise-high 61 points with Wade on the sidelines for Monday's game, but Miami will be near full strength as they look for their ninth consecutive win -- the only unavailable player is Greg Oden (rest).
Dwyane Wade returned from his rest on Tuesday with 24 points, four boards, six assists, two steals and three turnovers on 8-of-15 shooting in 37 minutes.
The Scoop:He looked 100 percent in this game and was getting in the paint like he usually does. The Heat are likely going to sit Wade out for almost all of their remaining back-to-back sets and the next one comes up on Sunday vs. the Bulls and Monday vs. the Wizards. After that, the Heat have five more back-to-back sets.
March 3 (The Sports Xchange) - Highlights of Monday's National Basketball Association games. - - - Heat 124, Bobcats 107 The Miami Heat, led by a franchise record 61 points from forward LeBron James, extended their winning streak to eight games, defeating the Charlotte Bobcats. James made 22-of-33 shots from the floor, including eight-of-10 from three-point range, and added seven rebounds and five assists. He broke the Heat scoring record of 56 points, which was set by forward Glen Rice 19 years ago. The Heat won without shooting guard Dwyane Wade, who rested his aching knees. ...
Carmelo Anthony's free agency decision has quickly become the new "The Decision" in Chicago. In the summer of 2010, Bulls fans were hopeful maybe even delusional that LeBron James would come to Chicago and team up with Derrick Rose and Joakim Noah for a power trio that would rival MJ, Pippen and Rodman.But that never happened, as LeBron famously chose Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh in Miami. Is the Carmelo Anthony situation deja vu?
The Scoop: None.

Ilgauskas has No. 11 jersey retired by Cavs (The Associated Press) (1 Day Ago | courtesy: The Associated Press) As the arena filled with the familiar drone of ''Zeeeeeee,'' Zydrunas Ilgauskas waved his right hand and used his left to gently pat his heart.

Cleveland roared back. At 7-foot-3, Ilgauskas towered over everyone yet stayed completely down to earth. More...
