Wade had already marked his last home appearance with a 30-point game earlier in the week. Meanwhile, Chris Paul played his final regular season game for the Houston Rockets on Tuesday night while Carmelo Anthony has been a free agent for the past couple of months.
After Brooklyn took a 63-47 lead into halftime, Russell hit four three 3-pointers in the first two minutes of the third quarter, including three in a span of 46 seconds, as the Nets extended their lead to 75-50. Not a shabby duo by any means. Fans chanted "We want Wade" while he rested on the bench, "Paul Pierce sucks" after Pierce said he had a better career than Wade, and "We want Philly".
Wade punctuated his career with one last triple-double, finishing with 25 points, 11 rebounds and 10 assists in a 113-94 loss to Brooklyn.
