How Wade's final game against the Raptors in Toronto stacks up with that of other legends

On Sunday, Dwyane Wade played the final regular season game of his legendary career in Toronto when the Raptors hosted the Miami Heat.

Wade has played 21 regular season games in Toronto in his career. His career-high at the Air Canada Centre/Scotiabank Arena is 42 points, which he scored on March 6, 2009.

It's one of the seven times he's posted 30 or more points against the Raptors in Toronto.

Wade has also played four postseason games in Toronto. He's 1-3 in those games, scoring 24 points in his lone win.

Take a trip down memory lane by looking at how Wade's final game compares to other legends in their last game up north...

Dwyane Wade, Miami Heat

Date: April 7, 2019

Stats: 21 points (7-14 FG, 4-6 3PT), 5 assists, 3 rebounds

In a must-win game for the Heat, Wade stepped up to the challenge, scoring a team-high 21 points to go along with five assists and three rebounds. Miami would ultimately come up short in overtime, but Wade had the ball in his hands during critical moments in the fourth quarter and the extra period.

Allen Iverson, Denver Nuggets

Date: March 23, 2008

Stats: 36 points (11-16 FG, 5-8 3PT), 6 assists, 2 rebounds

Iverson was at his best in the fourth quarter when he scored 13 of his game-high 36 points. He made one of the biggest shots of the game, knocking down a 3-pointer with just over a minute remaining to put the Nuggets ahead, 103-98.

Shaquille O'Neal, Boston Celtics

Date: Jan. 2, 2011

Stats: 7 points (3-3 FG, 1-5 FT), 6 rebounds, 4 blocks

O'Neal only had seven points, but he made all three of his field goal attempts and was responsible for four of Boston's six blocks. That helped limit the Raptors to only 79 points in a game the Celtics ended up winning by 14.

Tracy McGrady, Atlanta Hawks

Date: April 16, 2012

Stats: 11 points (3-7 FG, 1-3 3PT), 4 rebounds, 4 assists, 1 steal

This was one of only 11 games in which McGrady scored double figures in the final season of his Hall of Fame career. It helped the Hawks get the win, as they cruised to a 109-87 victory.

Steve Nash, Los Angeles Lakers

Date: Jan. 20, 2013

Stats: 16 points (5-11 FG, 2-3 3PT), 9 assists, 1 rebound, 1 steal

It was a point guard battle in Nash's final outing in Toronto, as he finished with 16 points and nine assists compared to 22 points and nine assists for Jose Calderon. The Raptors ended up with the 108-103 win.

Kobe Bryant, Los Angeles Lakers

Date: Dec. 7, 2015

Stats: 21 points (8-16 FG, 1-4 3PT), 8 rebounds, 4 assists, 2 steals

Bryant was 37-years-old when he played his last game against the Raptors in Toronto. His 21 points weren't enough to overcome strong performances from Kyle Lowry and Terrence Ross, who combined for 49 points.

Chris Bosh, Miami Heat

Date: Jan. 22, 2016

Stats: 26 points (9-19 FG, 1-5 3PT), 7 rebounds, 1 assist

Bosh and Wade combined for 48 of the Heat's 81 points on the game. Similar to how Bryant's final game played out, it wasn't nearly enough - the Raptors dominated the Heat, 101-81, behind 33 points from DeMar DeRozan.
