The Miami Heat squeaked out a victory over the San Antonio Spurs on Sunday night to tie the NBA Finals series at a game apiece. While the air conditioning at San Antonio’s AT&T Center stayed on this time and LeBron James stayed upright, the game wasn’t without it’s drama thanks to the Heat’s Dwyane Wade, who channeled his inner soccer star when he pulled out what might be the flop of the year.
Bravo, bravo. Those fine acting skills were good enough to earn Wade two free throws, which he made, and draw a third foul on the Spurs’ Manu Ginobili, which was ridiculous.
The NBA will likely fine Wade $5,000 for his melodramatic performance, but unfortunately for Spurs fans, the league can’t refund the two points scored by Wade after the flop.
The two teams will next meet in Miami on Tuesday for Game 3.
