Dwyane Wade Not Mad About Benching

Miami HEAT guard Dwyane Wade said Wednesday he has no ill will over coach Erik Spoelstra’s decision to sit him in the fourth quarter of Monday’s loss to the Utah Jazz.
In the 104-97 setback to the Jazz, Spoelstra decided to sit Wade and played forward Chris Bosh for just 40 seconds in the fourth quarter. The HEAT cut a 19-point deficit to two without their two stars before falling short.
Wade said Wednesday that he was frustrated about the loss, the HEAT’s sixth in the past 10 games, but there are no hard feelings over Spoelstra’s decision.
“It was the frustration of losing,” Wade said. “The fourth quarter was overblown. When I went to the bench, we were down 19 points and that team did a great job of coming back and making it a game. Obviously you want to play, but I could never get mad at my team coming back.”
