Miami Heat: WADE is back!!

Philippines
April 9, 2007 2:42am CST
Dwyane Wade is back..! in first action since feb.21 shoulder injury, wade had 12points and 8 assists in 27 mins of bench play, but the heat fell short against the bobcats in overtime.. though the heat lost the time, it is good news that a not-so-100% wade came back on the floor. this is a good sign for the defending champs as playoffs are fast approaching.. hehehe.. but will wade be healthy enough for the playoffs? is he ready to BANG bodies or even shoulders against his opponents? with wade out in case the playoffs would have started today, then i guess, no repeat for them this year..

12 points and 8 assists in 27 minutes for a player who's coming back after sitting out for the last 6 weeks is not really that bad. it was just a bad game for miami, especially in the overtime. well, teams always have some nights like that. but it was not a bad game after all for miami. it was a balanced game. alonzo mourning led the heat with 20 points while jason kapono added 19 points and hit all his 3 3-point attempts. miami's top 2 scorers in the game both came from the bench. that means any player could deliver for the heat. its a good sign for the playoffs. lets give wade more games and for sure he'll return to his usual self, plus shaq going back to his vintage form. the east just got interesting now

if you would ask me, i would have wade sit out for the rest of the season games and prepare him for the playoffs. but we know wade too well, playing with injuries during the playoffs. two years ago.. go wade get well soon..

its not uncharacteristic to have a number of turnovers considering the length of time he spent on the sidelines.

lets not forget though that wade is not yet 100%.. and with the playoffs fast approaching, it is important for miami to have wade have his recovery time.. and have him ready for the playoffs. the cavs and the pistons will be waiting for him. hehehe..

It's good to be back the flash of NBA in The name of D-Wade.Dwyane Wade scored 14 of his 23 in the fourth quarter to carry the Miami Heat to a 100-96 victory over the Indiana Pacers on Friday night.I don't think so D-Wade will not get back to his normal form on playoff time.I believe in him that he's a truly NBA warrior at heart.It's been a different destiny for Miami Heat this year. They didn't have the same issues going on last year. But we already know how the Heat wins. They all know the formula and they must have to mix it together right.In order to win their back to back NBA title.Go Miami Heat Go!

what miami is trying to do this time before the playoffs is to build chemistry among the players, especially for dwyane wade. the entire miami team has played a superb basketball when wade got injured, especially shaq and jason williams, and with wade inserted back to the line-up, for sure everything would change. they cant afford the risk of putting wade into the line-up during the playoffs without testing him with the whole heat line-up first, for sure it wont do any good, the loss to the bobcats is a testament to that. a little adjustment would do and for sure wade and the heat would be firing in all cylinders again during the playoffs.

i actually liked the way he played kept looking for his teamates instead of everyone standing around watching him. but they were playing better without him but come playoff time they will need him to get to the free throw line

Dwayne Wade got his first start since being injured, but he only scored 14 points and committted four turnovers as the Heat got swept by the Bobcats in their own home-and-home series. This is gonna be bad news for Miami as they will face my Wizards next to decide the fate of the Southeast as a Miami win will clinch the division for them. It's a game of which team has a better loss: Washington sans Agent Zero and Caron or Miami minus Kazaam (Shaq), Haslem, Payton, and Posey but with an unhealthy DW.

dwyane wade had 16 points, 6 rebounds, 7 assists, 2 steals and 1 block against the wizards. but he had 7 turnovers. it was an injury marred game. heat was without shaq, payton, posey and haslem while the wizards was without arenas and butler

with so many players out for that game, the bench players had time to show off their skills. this is a very important for the players to keep themselves motivated. after all, who wants to sit on the bench forever? hahaaha

The Heat are now the Southeast champs for the third stright time, but in the new playoff seedings, the Heat will finish no lower than fourth, therefore playing Cleveland in a virtual playoff series. The Cavs however will get homecourt advantage over the Heat since having a superior record. The Wizards on the other hand may finish sixth, playing third seeded Toronto with the Raptors taking homecourt edge. Check out my post in Washington Wizards about how Miami got back from seven games down to win it. (Tag: Miami wins Southeast)

another lost is just another lost. they are in the playoffs and no more worries. not only that, they won the division title against the wizards. and wade, though not yet 100%, looks pretty good.

A Miami team without Wade is better than a Miami team with a less-than-100% Wade. The difference is the team's adjustment. Without Wade, Shaq and all the others will score bigtime. With him, The team is more reliant. Result is -- a not so good team.

i think i would have to disagree "a little on that". now, look bad on last years finals.. if it hasnt been wade, then who? dallas had simply no answers for wade that series.. once he got going, there was no stopping him.. and with playoffs fast approaching, wade will attract a lot of attention causing double teams, that will lead other players open, but still wade made that happen.
