Miami Heat: Wade and James Find Rhythm and Haslem Finds His Old Self

So they've done it.
In a seemingly must-win game, the Miami Heat, (better known as, Dwyane Wade and Lebron James) have won Game 4 of a seven game series. The Indiana Pacers have shut down the Heat defensively for the last two games, holding them to 75 points each game.
Lebron James was granted the leadership role this pre-season by Dwyane Wade and has used it to perfection. Dwyane Wade was 0-5 from the field to begin Game 4, following a 2-13, five point performance when Lebron James realized he couldn't do it alone. He hit Dwyane on a base line cut for an easy dunk in the second quarter for the assist.
Wade followed that dunk with a few layups before the halftime buzzer.
Lebron James and Dwyane Wade scored the Miami Heat's next 38 points before Udonis Haslem broke the streak with two free throws. The Miami Heat won Game 4 101-93, moving the series down to South Beach for a pivotal Game 5.
The series has turned into a three game series. Two will be in the American Airlines Arena.
The blue collar worker for the Heat has undoubtedly been Udonis Haslem.
Haslem, statistically the most inefficient player of NBA playoff post season, dropped 14 points and four rebounds. Haslem has always shown up when needed over the last nine years.
Whether it's when Dwyane needed a legitimate second scorer in '05 or if the Heat needed a shot of adrenaline and energy mid way through the Eastern Conference Finals against the Chicago Bulls in 2011, Haslem was there.
Perhaps the aftermath of Haslem's appearance can last a few games longer than last year.
