Wade said the knee was stiff and swollen on Wednesday but added he will be “fine” for Game 7. Wade had arthroscopic surgery on the left knee last summer.
“Early in the game, I took a good shot on my left knee [and] that kind of trauma to it, it just swelled up,” he said. “It was stiff. I couldn’t do as much I wanted.”
Wade, who scored 14 points, missed the first 2:28 of the second half to receive treatment.
Bosh speaks out
“Make sure they don’t come to Game 7,” Bosh said. “You never give up. People gave up on us, and they can stay where they are and watch the game at home.”
Most fans stayed, but those who left were not permitted to reenter the arena. “You can’t leave a game and then come back,” Bosh said. “Hell, I’ve been to games. You left! It’s not punishment. That’s protocol.”

“There was a minute or so left in the game, and it was almost like San Antonio players on the bench were celebrating,” he said.
Bosh, who blocked two shots in the final 32 seconds of overtime, said: “I was trying to make it out alive. I was dehydrated, very tired. I asked friends how did it look on TV.”Mike Miller Mario Chalmers
“That lineup creates a lot of space,” James said. “I was able to find a rhythm. … When you get into a rhythm, you feel like you can’t be stopped.”
He said he will wear it in Game 7 because he’s a “little superstitious.” And if it gets knocked off again? “Then me and him will have a discussion if he will return.”Dan Le Batard Magic Johnson’s Julius Erving
