CLEVELAND - Dwyane Wade thought a move to the Cleveland Cavaliers' bench might make for a better fit on his new team.
So far, so good.
Coming off the bench for the first time this season -- and just the 12th time in his career -- Wade has already surpassed his season scoring average (5.7 PPG), scoring 6 points on 3-of-3 shooting as the Cavs attempt to amass a comeback against his former team, the Chicago Bulls.
On one second-quarter basket in particular, Wade looked like the same player who's made 12 All-Star games and won three NBA titles, hitting a vintage turnaround jumper against Chicago guard Justin Holiday.
After trailing by double-digits early in the first quarter, the Cavs have managed to trim the Bulls' lead to 68-63 heading into halftime. LeBron James leads all scorers with 23 points, while Jeff Green has added 11 off the bench to aid Cleveland's comeback effort.
