Heat guard Dwyane Wade:

“Russell Westbrook came out on another level tonight. From the first play, he came out so fast, so athletic. But we were able to settle in, run our offense, the ball got a chance to go through the basket, so we were able to get back and set our defense.”


“It's not me against the world and it's not the world against me. It's me and my teammates trying to win.”


“We've got to keep believing. That's what I'm going to keep going. That's the message I'm going to say to my guys, me and Russell going to say keep believing. The next game is a must-win.”


“We're thinking about Game 5 right now. We keep the same mindset that we've always kept throughout the season. We take it one possession, one quarter, one game at a time. We have to put everything together. We know it's not over until it's over.”
