Though the Heat eventually pulled out a 94–87 overtime win over Raptors in Game 4 of their Eastern Conference semifinal, Miami could have won by a larger margin if not for a bizarre play late in overtime. 

In the final minute of the overtime period, Wade drove to the hoop and attempted a layup. The ball bounced off the glass, off the front of the rim and then came to settle on the back of the rim. 


​By rule, the ball was called dead and there was a jump ball at center court.

Wade eventually put the finishing touch on Miami’s win with a dunk. He scored 30 points in the game.
