Late in his career, Dwyane Wade, once known as Flash, has a new nickname: Father Prime.
Dwyane Wade #3 of the Miami Heat reacts during the game against the Philadelphia 76ers in Game Two of Round One of the 2018 NBA Playoffs on April 16, 2018 at the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. He did all of this coming off the bench in just 26 minutes of action. Wade knocked the ball free and then the floor, slamming the ball home to put the Heat back up two scores.
When asked about his impressive showing, Wade did not credit his vast amount of playoff experience, or any particular change in strategy for his fantastic game.More news: Yankees-Red Sox fight leads to two suspensions

Philadelphia coach Brett Brown said he understood Embiid's frustration at being forced to watch from the sidelines, while acknowledging that the reaction was only natural. But Wade gets to frame it however he wants and there's little doubt both Hart and former 76ers star Allen Iverson, who had a courtside side near the actor, were engaged in the game.
Wade said he will take time after the season to decide whether to retire or return to the Heat for one more season.Wade's wife, actress Gabrielle Union, had some words of her own for her superstar husband. While his numbers across the board were terrific, Simmons had nowhere near the impact he imparted on Game 1 due to the Heat's frequent full-court pressing of him from start to finish.
Philadelphia ranked 10th in the league in 3-point percentage during the season, converting at a 36.9 per cent clip, and they shot 39.5 per cent during their 17-game winning streak.
