The Miami Heat facing elimination if they lost game 7, somehow got a fire lit under the butt of Dwyane Wade last night. Sure LeBron James had another great game in the play offs, but it was Wade who showed the most improvement in the Heats 99-76 victory over the Indiana Pacers.
Wade looked like the Wade people expected to see in the play offs. He hasn’t had a performance this good in a long time. Many are left wondering if he was bored with NBA Basketball. It took facing elimination to get his game going.
He scored 21 points in-game 7 and had 9 rebounds, he helped the Heat keep the pressure on the Pacers best players getting them into foul trouble early. It was the play of Wade that could have been the turning point in-game 7.
The Heat looked like the team that is going to the Championship. They will face the spurs in their run to get another ring and if Wade continues to play the way he did in-game 7, the Heat will take this series in 4 games.
It is going to be interesting to see, which Dwyane Wade shows up for game one in Miami Thursday night.
