Kevin Love, Dwyane Wade

Dwyane Wade started the Heat’s game against the Cavs on Christmas Day by hitting 10-of-16 from the floor for 24 points as the Heat took a 62-49 lead into the break. His first-half bonanza was punctuated by a putback slam right on Kevin Love‘s dome.

So good, we gotta see it again:

Wade — sans Chris Bosh — beat his friend LeBron on Christmas Day despite shooting just 2-for-12 in the second half to finish with a game-high 31 points.

Wade was right about Miami’s reaction when James was introduced, too, and embraced his friend before and after the game:

Respect. #brothers. #NBAXmas
