Erik Spoelstra almost recreates the iconic Dwyane Wade “table jump” celebration as the two meet up post the Heat-Wizard clash.
The Miami Heat hosted the Washington Wizards at the FTX Arena as their last home game before going on a 4-game road trip. A contest with only 5 led changes and 3 ties, witnessed an incredible duel between Jimmy Butler and Bradley Beal. While Beal dropped 30 points, 6 rebounds, and 5 assists, it was Jimmy Buckets who overshadowed the Wizards guard as his 32 points, 5 assists, 4 steals, and 3 rebounds helped the Heat to grab the 112-97 win.
The past week has been absolutely successful for Erik Spoelstra and the team. After winning 4 straight games, the squad has now taken the first spot of the Eastern Conference yet again. And this victory definitely called for a celebration.
Coach Spo looked rather cheerful after tonight’s win. And how did Erik decide to celebrate? By almost recreating the iconic Dwyane Wade “table jump” celebration, while D-Wade was in the stands.
