NBA wrap: Dwyane Wade's buzzer-beater stuns Warriors

As he wheeled away in celebration, fans went wild, and many took to social media in disbelief at what they'd seen.

The Heat got 27 points from Goran Dragic, the 25 from Wade and 21 from Josh Richardson.

But with the flick of a pair of wrists, 3-pointers by Draymond Green and Curry got the Warriors within 106-103, with a Durant 3-pointer later drawing the Warriors within 109-107 and another Durant jumper tying it at 109 with 5:09 left. Durant made the second of two throws on that trip, before Wade delivered on the ensuing possession for the biggest win of Miami's season. However, even with the loss, it was a fun game with both Klay Thompson and Kevin Durant hitting multiple huge shots down the stretch of the game to bring the Warriors back from a 24-point deficit earlier in the game.

In an astounding last-minute victory over the National Basketball Association champion Golden State Warriors, Dwyane Wade hit an astounding buzzer-beating three-pointer that renders completely irrelevant how lousy the Miami Heat's season may end.

"Dwyane just hit an unbelievable shot", Warriors coach Steve Kerr said after the game. 'It was going in as soon as it left his hand'.

Philadelphia star Joel Embiid will sit out his fourth straight game with tendinitis in his left knee, and his backup, Boban Marjanovic, injured his knee on Monday and will not play.

Final battle to liberate last Islamic State village begins after civilians evacuated
Bali said the final batch of civilians had been evacuated from Baghouz on Friday ahead of renewed military activity. Earlier this month, the White House partially reversed itself and said around 400 USA troops would stay.

The veteran made that much abundantly clear when he nailed a mind-blowing buzzer-beater for Miami Heat to sink Golden State Warriors on Thursday.

Sharing the court with some other modern greats, such as Golden State hero Stephen Curry, Wade revelled in being able to show his younger colleagues what he was once regularly capable of.

It banked in. Wade did not call it - when you're a 13-time All-Star, you don't have to call anything. In the end, Wade simply didn't let them leave with the lead.

"It's special for me", Wade said according to ESPN. The Heat was still missing power forward James Johnson (left shoulder).

Golden State remains one win shy of finishing with a road record over.500 for the sixth consecutive season.

Instead, Wade engineered a miracle in Miami - exactly one year to the day after he hit a game-winner to beat Philadelphia at home. Miami topped the Rockets 101-99 at home on December 20.
