ATLANTA(AP) Dwyane Wade didn't call "bank.''
No need. This was the playoffs, not H-O-R-S-E.
With 13 straight points to close the first half and an unlikely 3-pointer off the backboard in the waning minutes, Wade showed it's hard to keep him down two games in a row. He scored 33 points in all, leading the Miami Heat to a 108-93 victory over the Atlanta Hawks that evened their playoff series at one game apiece Wednesday night.
"This is where amazing happens,'' Wade said.
Amazing, indeed. Remember how bad Wade and his Miami teammates looked in a 90-64 loss to open the playoffs? They were that good in Game 2.
Wade already had more points by halftime than he had in Game 1, when he was held to 19 points and turned it over eight times. Only once during the regular season was he held to less that 20 points in consecutive games, and he wasn't about to do it again in the playoffs.
This was vintage D-Wade - 6-of-10 from 3-point range, 11-of-20 overall, five rebounds, seven assists, two blocked shots and a steal.
Wade was locked in for this one, and the Hawks didn't stand a chance.
"He set the tone,'' Miami coach Erik Spoelstra said. "Before I came out to talk to the team, right before the game, there was some joking and laughing in the locker room and I heard him tell everybody to shut up and get their minds on the game.''
After trailing by as many as 18, the Hawks twice closed within five points in the fourth quarter - but never got over the hump. Wade delivered the decisive blow when, with the shot clock running down, he threw up a long 3. The shot was errant, but it banked in off the backboard and was just as good as a swish.
"I didn't call 'bank,''' Wade quipped. "Just like everybody in the building, I'm not going to tell a story, I was shocked, too.''
The improbable shot pushed the Heat to a 101-91 lead, and the Hawks were done.
The crowd started heading for the exits, except for a handful of Miami fans who hung around to serenade Wade with chants of "M-V-3!'' When the horn sounded, Wade went over and shook hands with Atlanta rap star T.I., sitting at courtside as he waits to begin his yearlong sentence for weapons charges.
"I've been feeling it coming, feeling it coming,'' Wade said. "I didn't see nothing but the basket, and it was getting bigger and bigger.''
