Miami Heat shooting guard Dwyane Wade gave fans a memorable moment to remember in his final NBA season on Wednesday night.

Wade hit a miraculous three-pointer at the buzzer to lift the Heat past the Golden State Warriors in their mid-week matchup at American Airlines Center against the two-time reigning NBA champions.

The 37-year-old came off the bench for the Heat with a spectacular performance. He shot 10-17 from the field and scored 25 points for Miami in only 26 minutes of action.

The most memorable of those 25 points, though, were the three that he recorded as the clock expired.

Wade had his first attempt as time run down blocked, but then he grabbed the ball and banked in a long three-pointer, causing pandemonium at the Heat’s home arena.

Point guard Goran Dragic also turned in a strong performance off of the bench, scoring 26 points.

Despite a magnificent game from Klay Thompson, who made seven three-pointers and scored 36 points, the Warriors just didn’t have quite enough firepower to beat Miami.

The Heat moved to 27-33 with the win, getting closer to the Eastern Conference’s 8th playoff seed.
