Wade’s overtime steal seals Heat’s win over Magic (VIDEO)

Dec 31, 2012, 8:52 PM EDT

It’s not like the Heat weren’t supposed to beat the Magic on Monday, especially with Orlando missing both Glen Davis and Jameer Nelson due to injury.

But after a strong start, Miami was complacent in the second quarter, getting outscored by 15 in the period, which gave the home team some confidence that allowed them to hang with the Heat closely for the rest of the way.

So to overtime we went, and once we got to the end of the extra session, Miami’s talent finally won out.

With the Heat leading by two and just over 17 seconds remaining, the Magic inbounded the ball. J.J. Redic tried to make a pass up top beyond the three-point arc to Hedo Turkoglu, but Dwyane Wade saw it coming a mile away.

He shot the gap, got the steal, and took it in for the uncontested dunk at the other end of the floor to seal the win for his team.
