Dwyane Wade Wants Loud HEAT Fans
It should be a quite a contrast in crowds Sunday as the series shifts from raucous Chesapeake Energy Arena to laid-back AmericanAirlines Arena, a crowd that is traditionally tepid and late-arriving. The Heat players are banking on a difficult atmosphere for the Thunder for the next three games.
“I think that’s been our focus, is to make sure this place in here is a place that we feel comfortable playing,’’ guard Dwyane Wade said. “It’s a place that it’s tough to play. Our fans have been great. A lot of stuff has been said about our fans, and it will always be said about our fans, but they’re our fans. We love them. We appreciate them. And Game 7 last time we played here [against the Celtics] was the loudest I’ve heard it here in a very, very long time.
“We love our fans and I think they’re excited about this game [Sunday], and I think they’re going to be as loud as they can possibly be.’’
