Dwyane Wade Credits Kevin Hart For Outstanding Game In Heat Vs. Sixers

Heat-76ers has Joel Embiid cursing and Gabrielle Union promising Dwyane Wade a reward

And according to Dwyane Wade, comedian Kevin Hart is to blame.

Despite clearing the NBA's concussion protocol, Joel Embiid was still not able to return for game two of the Philadelphia 76ers' first-round series with the Miami Heat on Monday night.

But Wade is no dummy.

For one, it will be hard for Wade to play that well again.

Embiid told ESPN that he could also sit out Game 3 in Miami.

In what was likely his biggest play of the night, Wade forced a steal just as the Sixers had cut the Heat's lead down to two points with just four minutes to play.

Wade said he will take time after the season to decide whether to retire or return to the Heat for one more season.
After what happened at Super Bowl LII just two months ago, you might think Hart would tone things down a bit for the second game of the National Basketball Association postseason. "It's a lot of different, it's a lot of different things that come into play".

But he's never put his retirement in such certain terms, suggesting either this year or the next will be the culmination of a surefire Hall of Fame career.

Everyone knew a Dwyane Wade game was coming at some point - it just happened to come before the series shifted back to Miami as the Heat stole home court advantage from the Philadelphia 76ers.

Hart stood at his courtside seat decked out in an old-school Sixers jacket, vocally supporting Philadelphia and talking trash with Wade and other Heat players throughout the game.

Hart wasn't the only one shouting out Wade after the game.

"We'll get up and down and do some script stuff", Brown said.
