Dwyane Wade, Kevin Hart put aside friendship for Playoffs

Hart was seated near Allen Iverson, who Wade showed respect for following the game.

Okay, so banning Kevin Hart from Sixers games seems a bit harsh.

Of course, the stars' banter is all in good fun, but it didn't stop the Heat players from continuing the rivalry Thursday morning ahead of Game 3 between the Sixers and Heat.

Wade added, "As leaders, that's what myself, that's what Udonis, that's what the coaching staff, that's what everyone is trying to continue to let the message go across to everybody and say, 'We got to play with that edge". We made it very clear we're not friends now. He may have saved the Heat in Game 2, but unless Miami can figure out another solution for the 76ers youthful exuberance we probably won't see this Wade again in the playoffs.

Heat teammate Wayne Ellington also had fun at Hart's expense.

"Kev and his little self over there talking trash", Ellington said.

Following Wade's breakout performance in Game 2 where he scored a team-high 28 points on 11-of-17 shooting to help lead the Miami Heat to a 113-103 victory over the Philadelphia 76ers, he was asked by ESPN's Ramona Shelburne to explain what got into him. "We got to play with that look in our eyes that we have.' And it still ain't going to guarantee you a win, but we'll be better for it". "He's a comedian, so that's his job".

On Thursday, Wade was asked if Hart would be in the American Airlines Arena for the game.
