The Heat are scheduled to practice at 1 p.m. on Thursday and then fly to Charlotte two hours later. Somewhere along the way, once he blows off the steam from Wednesday’s 90-88 loss to the Hornets that dropped Miami into a 3-2 series hole, Wade will mention Game 6 to his teammates.
Not the Game 6 the Heat will play Friday in Charlotte with their season on the line, but rather Game 6 of the 2012 Eastern Conference finals. That’s when Miami trailed 3-2 after losing Game 5 at home to the Celtics and had to go to Boston in need of a victory to salvage its season.
