Dwyane Wade turned back the clock Wednesday night at AmericanAirlines Arena, connecting on his first game-winning buzzer-beater in nearly 10 years by drilling a 3-pointer off the glass to shock the Golden State Warriors.

The Miami Heat's 37-year-old shooting guard is counting down the days until his legendary career concludes in a season he's dubbed his "Last Dance." The magnitude of the moment wasn't lost on Wade, who took to Instagram to commemorate his huge evening.

Following the final buzzer in Miami's 126-125 win over the reigning champions, Wade gave a shoutout to fellow legend Kobe Bryant and his "Mamba Mentality."

Current and former players from across the Association showed the three-time champion and 13-time All-Star some love for his clutch bucket.
