Just a week ago, some people started to write off the Miami Heat and their chances of advancing to the next round of the playoffs or even winning an NBA Championship. LeBron missed big free throws and Dwyane Wade played the worst playoff basketball game in his career. Worry no longer, the Miami Heat have advanced to the Eastern Conference Finals.

After game 3 against the Pacers, the 2 superstars for the Heat took their game to a whole new level. They took it to a height, that they havent even seen before in the playoffs. They just took the game into their own hands and basically said, if we win or lose it will be on us. LeBron finished the game with 28 points, 6 rebounds, and 7 assists. Stuffing the stat sheet as usual. But, Dwyane Wade looks as if he turned the clocked back a few years. Im thinking more like 2006, when he led the Heat to their first championship in franchise history and was named Finals MVP.

Wade had his knee drained after game 3, the worst playoff game of his career. He also talked to his former college coach from Marquette, Tom Crean for some added motivation. All of those things has Wade playing at a very high level right now. In last nights game he posted 41 points, 10 rebounds, 3 assists, and 2 steals. He shot a ridicolous 68% from the field and it looks like flash is back. The Heat also got huge contributions form Mike Miller (12 points) and Mario Chalmers (15 points). Now they can sit back and relax for a day or two before they get back to work, while they await the winner between Boston and Philly. This also gives Chris Bosh more recovery time from his abdominal injury. The Eastern Conference Finals begin Monday night in Miami, time is to be determined.
