SACRAMENTO, Calif. -- Dwyane Wade was having a rough night. His shot was unreliable.
"That No. 3 is pretty good," a weary-looking Heat coach Erik Spoelstra said.
Wade scored the final five points in overtime for the Heat, who had dropped three of four games. Relentless no matter who was covering him, Wade made 11 of 26 shots and 18 of 24 free throws. Wade also had five rebounds and seven assists.
Wade went down hard on a flagrant foul by Spencer Hawes in overtime. After lying under the basket for over a minute, Wade got up and made one of two free throws for a 112-110 lead at the 2:01 mark.
"It's basketball, sometimes there are hard fouls and hard falls," Wade said. "You've got to get up and play. I hurt a lot of parts of my body on that one fall."
It was Hawes rallying the Kings in the final minute. He hit a corner 3-pointer to get the Kings within a point with 10.4 seconds remaining. After Chalmers made one of two free throws, the Kings rushed downcourt and Hawes connected on 17-footer to tie the game at 104 with 3.1 seconds left. Wade shot an airball at the buzzer to send the game into overtime.
The Heat are on a seven-game, 12-day trip that began Wednesday with a loss in Denver. It's only the third time in franchise history that Miami has played seven straight road games.
With an 8-29 record, the Kings are having the worst start to a season in the Sacramento era, which dates to 1985-86. Typically a good home team, even in their lean years, the Kings are now 6-12 at Arco Arena where the crowds have dwindled and the enthusiasm has waned.
"It's obviously another disappointing loss after fighting so hard, having a chance to tie it up in regulation, gong to overtime and having a chance to win another basketball game," Kings interim coach Kenny Natt said. "Then we let it slip away, so obviously we're disappointed about that."
