Since losing teammate Chris Bosh to injury and then trailing the Indiana Pacers 2-1 in their NBA playoff series, the Miami Heat's Big Two have gone wild. LeBron James has averaged 32.7 points, 11.3 rebounds and eight assists on 55 percent shooting, while Dwyane Wade averaged 33 points (he scored 99 in the three games, James 98), 7.3 rebounds and 3.7 assists on 62 percent shooting.
"We needed it," Wade said. "When you talk about three games, two guys being dominant at the same time, this was probably the best we've been."
The Heat now await the winner of the seventh game of the Boston Celtics-Philadelphia 76ers series.
Can the Heat's Big Two stay hot? Will they have to to stay competitive?
