We saw vintage Dwyane Wade on Monday night in Philadelphia.
The future hall of famer and former NBA Finals MVP started Game 2 scorching hot, making his first seven shots and finishing with 21 points in the first half.
He would finish with 28 points in the Heat’s 113-103 victory to even the series at 1-1.
He also reached a historical milestone in the process, moving to 10th on the all-time playoff scoring list, passing Larry Bird…

Wade has a chance to get to 4,000 career postseason points and move to 9th on the list if the Heat can win a playoff series this year or if he and the Heat return to the postseason in 2019.
There is definitely a magic about Dwyane Wade in a Miami Heat uniform as it just looks right and Wade is able to find some elixir on special nights to hearken back to the era of when he was one of the greatest players in the league.
The Heat have officially made it a series with the 76ers and having their wily veteran on the court will help them try and pull off the upset.
