The Miami Heat believe Dwyane Wade did not deserve a one-game suspension for his shot to the groin of Ramon Sessions in Wednesday's win over the Charlotte Bobcats.
“We accept it but we don’t agree with it,” Erik Spoelstra said. “As an organization, we have his back. That was a very physical game, there were a lot of hard hits in that game, and what we’re getting tired of as an organization are the hits in particular to Dwyane and LeBron (James) and Chris (Bosh) and that is the gameplan against us. Now our guys thrive on that type of gameplan, and they are physical players, but there is an excess of hard fouls against our guys.”
Wade has adamantly stated he didn't kick Sessions on purpose.
“It was a bang-bang play, man,” Wade said. “It was a play that you have to kind of be there. It was something that was looked at over video review, and it can be taken any kind of way.
“We’re just going to play the game that they allow us to play."
