Dwyane Wade made a move to the basket with only a couple seconds left as his team was down 90-88. In his mind he was either going to get to the rim or draw a foul and give him a chance to tie the game but that opportunity never came. Instead Wade was denied at the rim by Cody Zeller and Courtney Lee and the clock eventually ran out, giving the Hornets a tough road victory.
