Heat vs Lakers: The LeBron James And Dwyane Wade Show

+Read full article

Steve Mitchell-USA TODAY Sports

Today’s game at American Airlines Arena between the Miami Heat and Los Angeles Lakers did live up to some of the hype it had.

Especially when it came to LeBron James and Dwyane Wade.

The Heat continued to be undefeated during their current home stand with every victory being led by two of their ‘Big Three’ in James and Wade. When it came to today’s game neither of the two wasted any time in getting going. James continued his dominantly efficient February today from start to finish in what is looking more likely to be another MVP caliber NBA season. Wade has been the biggest surprise among the two considering how he started this season.

Wade started the season recovering from off-season knee surgery and looked like he was losing a step in his speed. Slowly throughout the season he has been getting back to his usual form. Over the last month that process has accelerated drastically and today Wade was in vintage mode that included a slam dunk and a late shot made as he had the Lakers’s Earl Clark bite on a pump fake leading to a foul.

With Wade looking to be fully back from surgery and James having arguably the best season of his career the Heat are getting into their groove at the right time. Wade’s play helps Heat head coach Erik Spoelstra in preserving James for crunch time as he has been logging heavy minutes this season.

Today’s game was a good example of this. When James was on the bench with foul trouble in the first half Wade kept Miami’s offense going and helped the team climb back from a seven point Lakers lead. In the second half the duo took their play to the next level to start pulling away. Not even good performance by Kobe Bryant and Clark were enough to make it a game late.

The other part of  the Heat’s ‘Big Three’, Chris Bosh, also played well after missing that last two games with the flu. He held his own against Dwight Howard and helped Miami dominate the Lakers in rebounding, a rarity for the Heat this season.

On Wednesday night, the Los Angeles Lakers made a fourth-quarter comeback against the Cleveland Cavaliers, but ultimately lost 120-111. Unfortunately, along the way, rookie point guard D'Angelo Russell was struck in the groin by an errant pass at the hands of LeBron James, and ended up on the floor in quite a bit of agony as any man would. Thankfully, after leaving the game for a few minutes, Russell was able to return.

Ryan Anderson Throws Down Savage Dunk On Kobe Bryant

Although Kobe would get the last laugh with the win, his second great performance and the Lakers notched back-to-back wins for just the second time this season, that doesn't stop this Ryan Anderson dunk from being any less disrespectful. The Mamba is in a retirement year, man, let him go out with his dignity still in tact.
