Happy Memorial Day Miami Heat fans! Let's basketball, shall we? The Heat are back at it tonight at the American Airlines Arena, with tip off set for 8:30. The Heat are in a position to take a commanding 3-1 series lead after a Ray Allen three-point barrage filled fourth quarter led them to a 99-87 comeback win in Game Three Saturday night. A win tonight would move the Heat just one game away from a fourth consecutive appearance in the NBA Finals, as well as just five wins away from the coveted three-peat. Yup, we are pretty spoiled.
Overshadowed by Jesus Shuttlesworth's classic three-point clinic Saturday was the continued superb play of Dwyane Wade. Wade has now scored 23 or more points in four straight games dating back to the series clincher versus the Brooklyn Nets, and has looked healthier than he has since the Heat's 27-game winning streak last season.
