It's like in one breath he is over-rated and in the next he should be scoring 15pts in the 4th quarter and HA HA because he didn't he is a big failure. If he scores 40 in game 6 the same posters will be calling him a ball-hog.

The bottom line is that the Heat played very well in game 5 and (fortunately) the Mavs had a super hot night from the arc to pull off the win.
He is not over rated, he's one of the most amazing talents the NBA has ever seen. But when you score 11 points total in the fourth quarter for the first 5 games of the NBA finals, something isn't right.

They did the same thing to the Lakers. It wouldn't surprise me if they kept shooting that successfully.

My question is

Why is Dwayne Wade still able to score when the Mavs double team him?

Duh, he did the same thing in the Finals vs the Spurs. He is an overhyped fake king.

2 Finals so far, 2 horrible performance. Thats your King

Add some analysis if you post something like this....like regular season minutes vs. playoffs etc.

For example, he played something like 46/48 minutes in the last game....well yes....I expect a poor 4th quarter from him given Wade played 36-38min.

Basically, if a guy manages a triple-double in 3-quarters with no rest do we rip him to shreds because he fails in the 4th quarter? Seriously, where are the real NBA fans able to analyze this without making me want to puke after reading their 4th grade insights. (remember, I'm rooting for Dallas.)

Your hate <> reality.

If you want to actually discuss this....start posting stats.

(P.S. I work with analytics to pay my bills....no BS stuff please.)

I think they're doubling lebron more than they are doubling wade.

I think the biggest credit in this series goes to the dallas coach. It looks like he out coached jackson and it looks like his team is adjusting perfectly in the finals. Jackson was not able to bring his team to play. The Lakers could have and should have played better.

They shot 13-19 or about 69% from 3-pt range that game. They only had one game even close to that vs. the Lakers and that was game 1 (20/32).

For the rest of the series they shot 12/22, 8/25 and 9/20.

Series total vs. Lakers 49/99 or about 49%....which had they shot that vs. the Heat in game 5 they would wind up with 9-12 fewer points and would have likely lost that game.

So basically, you aren't shocked that they shot 13/19 3-pointers because they did it before.....

Dear god, the anti-lebron bandwagon is just overflowing with beckys....

P.S. Additionally the Heat are a better defensive team.

What's wrong with him? Same thing that is wrong with the Heat as a whole.....Too many expectations for team just put together in one off season. Everybody and their brother gave it to them and so far, they as he, have not met those expectations. Next MJ? Hardly......
