Wade’s 46 points keeps Miami alive

Check out this series of plays over a six-minute stretch of the Heat’s 101-92 win over the Boston Celtics in Game 4:

00:14.5 [MIA 71-75] Wade 3pt Shot: Made (27 PTS)
START OF 4TH QUARTER
11:45 [MIA 73-77] Wade Jump Shot: Made (29 PTS)
11:09 [MIA 76-77] Wade 3pt Shot: Made (32 PTS)
10:36 [MIA 79-78] Wade 3pt Shot: Made (35 PTS)
10:36 [MIA 79-78] Wade 3pt Shot: Made (35 PTS)
08:17 [MIA 86-80] Wade Free Throw 1 of 3 (39 PTS)
08:17 [MIA 87-80] Wade Free Throw 2 of 3 (40 PTS)
08:17 [MIA 88-80] Wade Free Throw 3 of 3 (41 PTS)
06:12 [MIA 93-82] Wade 3pt Shot: Made (44 PTS)

He did miss one shot during that stretch (tsk, tsk), so in that 6:03 span, he scored 20 points on 6-of-7 shooting (5-of-5 from 3PT) and almost single-handedly took the Heat from a seven-point deficit to an 11-point lead. Mike Breen called it one of the greatest playoff performances he’s ever seen.

Wade’s run of five-straight threes is especially impressive considering he is just a 29% career shooter from behind the arc.

If that wasn’t enough, a few minutes before Wade’s 20-point run, he posterized Kevin Garnett:

Even with the win, the Heat trail in the series, 3-1, and head back to Boston for Game 5 on Tuesday.
