Dwyane Wade: Will Heat Star Wade Keep Getting to Rim Against Dallas Mavericks?
If Dallas Mavericks Can’t Stop Penetration, They Have No Chance In Game 3
Both Dwyane Wade and LeBron James were too willing to settle for jump shots in Game 2 of the NBA Finals (even if Wade converted his to the tune of 36 points). Wade, at least, has shown that he’s learned that lesson so far in Game 3.
As of this writing early in the second quarter, Wade leads Miami with eight points while having taken just two shots outside the paint. With LeBron James also getting to the rim, Dallas will be run off the floor unless they tighten up inside.
Three quick fouls on backup center Ian Mahinmi have hurt, but Tyson Chandler and Dirk Nowitzki need to give their wing players more help collapsing on the Heat’s penetrators. Wade is doing exactly what Miami needs him to do, and it’s up to Dallas (especially their big men) to make some plays to stop it or see the Heat win going away.
James and Wade are great passers, and collapsing on them will leave other players open. Nevertheless, Dallas would be much better off making those other players beat them rather than letting Miami’s two stars dictate the tempo on offense.
