The Miami Heat got off to a rocky start to begin the season, losing two of their first three games. However, they seemed to have found their form in the past three games, with each of the “Big Three” showing up in a BIG way.
In last Sunday’s win over the Washington Wizards, it was Chris Bosh who showed up as the knight in shining armor, putting up 24 points, seven rebounds, two assists and two blocks. Although his sidekicks contributed, he was the star of the show.
Two nights later, it was LeBron James who had another one of his magnificent games against the Toronto Raptors, dropping 35 points to accompany eight assists and eight rebounds. However, we have to come to expect this from the four time NBA MVP.
Then, Dwyane Wade, of all people, who has been nursing his ailing knees, showed up in a huge way against one of the Heat’s biggest tests in the Los Angeles Clippers. But they couldn’t stop “The Flash” as he put up 29 points, seven rebounds, four assists and three steals, leading his Heat to victory.
We all know what these three can accomplish together, but truly, it’s the ability of each one to shine on any given night that makes this team so hard to beat.
The Big Three are averaging around 62 points, 16 rebounds and 14 assists a game thus far this season. That’s not a bad trio. If they can get any contribution from the rest of their roster, I expect the Heat’s three-game winning streak to roll on.
As the Heat bench averages around 33 points a game, they could be well on their way to repeating as Eastern Conference champions … if they can keep this up.
