Dwyane Wade Is No Sidekick - May 30, 2012


POSTED BY:

In a sport that is predicated on runs, the slightest thing can change the course of a game. Throughout the 2012 Miami Heats regular season, we have seen it happen more and more. The game is moving at a slower than normal Heat pace, then boom, its a big 3 at just the right time to spark a run, or a hand in the passing lane that leads to a highlight reel, breakaway dunk that ignites the crowd and the rest of the team to another exciting finish. On the grand stage, Game 2 of the Eastern Conference Finals, we were all witnesses to its happenings once again, with Dwyane Wade as its catalyst . And not once, but twice. Sure, its something he did 63 times in the regular season. Yes, Dwyane Wade leads the Miami Heat, as well as all other shooting guards in blocked shots at 1.33 bpg. And yes, he even has 611 career regular season blocked shots. But maybe none bigger in his 8 years, since being drafted 5th overall in the 2003, than the block that came at 4:08 of the third quarter. Wade elevated, and blocked a break-away, double pump lay-up by Ray Allen that would have capped a behemoth, old school Boston Celtic type run. But instead, Wade cracked the Celtics armor, and started a run that would end in a 35 point quarter. But showing the heart of a battling champion, the Boston Celtics didnt go gently into that good night. With Paul Pierce searching for picks to get off shots with the most awkward of angles, Kevin Garnett beating his chest and digging in for battle, Ray Allen finding his legs for a huge trey, and Rajon Rondo dropping 3s, and saving the biggest game of his career for this historic moment in time, Dwyane Wade chose the 4:55 mark of the fourth quarter to add to his legend and turn the tide once again. As the Celtics found their grove, Rajon Rondo found an open lane and attacked the rim once more, looking to stamp out the upstart Miami Heat with yet another big tear drop flick. But this time was different. Wade leapt, and seemed to hover in the air. This block, like the one that came before it, was a momentum swinging shift in the games balance, that would prove to be his stamp, in fact, his true mark which undeniably would propel the Miami Heat past the Boston Celtics in a hard fought 115-111 overtime victory.
