Heat guard Dwyane Wade has crossed the 14,000-point mark for his career. Wade is the 25th active NBA player to have that many points. Of those 25, only Wade, Heat teammate LeBron James and New York forward Carmelo Anthony have done so in less than 10 seasons. All three entered the NBA in 2003. Wade came into Sunday's game against Charlotte needing 13 points to reach the milestone. He scored his 13th and 14th points on a dunk off a long pass from James early in the third quarter. Wade is Miami's all-time franchise leader in points, assists, steals, field goals made and attempted and free throws made and attempted.
