Video: Dwyane Wade throws assist with his back on the floor
Throughout his illustrious career, Dwyane Wade has showcased his ability to make mind-boggling plays for himself and teammates. Even in his 15th season and his first one with the Cleveland Cavaliers, Wade continues to show off that facet of his game.
During the second quarter of the match between the Cavs and Charlotte Hornets on Wednesday, the 12-time All-Star slipped while attempting to drive against his defender. Being the veteran that he is, he did not panic in the situation and still dropped a dime to his teammate, Iman Shumpert, despite having his back on the floor.

Dwyane Wade may not be producing the same numbers as he did during his earlier days in the NBA, but he is still very effective and capable of stepping up for his team when needed. He has also proven his desire to win, as he has accepted his role of coming off the bench for the Cavs, which is the first time it has happened in his career.
The Cavs ultimately won on the night, and now have their longest winning streak of the season at three games. They will return to action on Friday as they are back home to host the L.A. Clippers, where they’ll look to extend their winning streak further and bounce back from their slow start to the season.
