Dwyane Wade hasn't looked like, well, Dwyane Wade in the Eastern Conference Finals. Sure, he's produced solid numbers by anyone's standards, but when simply using the eye test, it's easy to see that LeBron James has been the focal point of Miami's offense. What makes Wade's effort in the series thus far a bit surprising -- if not alarming to Heat fans -- is that the guard's "struggles" come despite going up against a hobbled Ray Allen. Allen has played well defensively against Wade in the past, but all indications heading into this series were that Wade held not only...

Trust issues are Wade, James' weakness

Consistency separates the Spurs from the Heat. On a nightly basis, you know exactly what to expect and what you're going to get from Gregg Popovich's squad. The Spurs trust their system of unselfish ball and man movement. It's as if they're on autopilot and the only possible variable is individual effort within the system. Popovich's in-your-face coaching style...

Dwyane Wade stares down Kevin Garnett hard after clutch layup (Video)

Wednesday was an embarrassing night for Kevin Garnett. The 36-year-old forward went 6-18 for 18 points in an Eastern Conference finals Game 2 loss to the Heat. He let Dwyane Wade score a layup in front of him to essentially seal the game in overtime, and he was called out by Wally Szczerbiak on Twitter. As you can see in the image above, Wade stared back at KG hard after the layup...

Recap: The grittiest and ballsiest win yet

Three reasons the Celtics won this game: Grit and balls. Balls and grit. Grit and balls. What did I tell you all before the game via Twitter? Joey Crawford is the only ref with the balls to take on LeBron Wade and Dwyane Wade. And Joey delivered with the 6th whistle on James. Now excuse me while I restart my heart.

After loss, Heat try to earn split in Boston

BOSTON (AP) -- Everywhere Dwyane Wade turned, two Boston Celtics seemed to be waiting. And as long as Chris Bosh is out, he understands it's probably going to stay that way. The Celtics can double-team him without fear, knowing LeBron James is the only other Miami player who can consistently hurt them. Wade scored only 18 points Friday in the Heat's 101-91 loss in Game...

LeBron James, Dwyane Wade Will 'Continue to Attack,' 'Force the Issue' Against Celtics (Video)

LeBron James and Dwyane Wade have made a living attacking the basket, a style of play that generally lends itself to plenty of opportunities at the charity stripe. The Celtics saw that firsthand in Games 1 and 2. But James and Wade were limited to five combined free-throw attempts during Friday's Game 3, with Wade failing to get to the line even once. Those figures are something...

Wade's misfire allowed...

This time, Heat can't get Celtics fouled up

Although it's part of playoff rhetoric, the constant talk about officiating appears to be wearing on Heat coach Erik Spoelstra, especially when it comes to the notion of LeBron James and Dwyane Wade being extended a favorable whistle. It finally caught up to the Heat in the 101-91 loss to the Celtics in Game 3 of the Eastern Conference final on Friday night. Wade failed to...

Heat must play better to win title

At the end of a long and spectacular night, in which testimonies and adjectives on the singular greatness of Rajon Rondo appeared to be as exhausted as many legs, the question that hung in the air after Miami's 115-111 overtime victory over Boston was this: After throwing so much into Game 2, what more could the aging, aching, depleted Celtics possibly have to give when they...

‘Better Than Wade’? Why The Wiz Should Hope Brad Beal Falls To 3

Here to encourage the Wizards to draft Bradley Beal (pictured with girlfriend Kytra Hunter), is Florida blog Alligator Army’s Andy Hutchins. After Anthony Davis, the shot-eating mantis who will be the first pick, there’s a lot more doubt in the 2012 NBA Draft.

Heat-Celtics Preview
