D-Wade tells Kevin Hart he can’t come to Miami.
Dwyane Wade turned back the clocks in Philadelphia last night, scoring a game-high 28 points as the Miami Heat defeated the 76ers 113-103 to tie up the series at 1-1. After the game, Wade told ESPN’s Ramona Shelburne that Sixers fans can “thank Kevin Hart” for his throwback performance in Game 2.
Hart, a Philly native and diehard Sixers fan, was jawing at the 36-year old shooting guard from his court side seats throughout the night. “When you got people like Kevin Hart talking on the sideline, when you got the crowd saying all the things they’re saying, I heard a lot of things tonight, and it’s all used as motivation,” Wade said, according to NBC Sports. “To be able to hush a whole crowd, that’s a great feeling.”
Hart was seated next to Sixers legend Allen Iverson last night, but Wade made it clear that he was only talking trash to, and grilling, the comedian in the blue 76ers gear.
The series will now shift to Miami for Games 3 and 4, where it is expected that Sixers center Joel Embiid will make his return to the lineup. Whether Kevin Hart will be court side again at the American Airlines Arena for Game 3 on Thursday night remains to be seen.
