The Heat and Raptors are set to face off at 8:00 PM tonight, May 11, with the series tied at two games apiece. Arguably, this series has been the most entertaining out of the four total, and each contest has been decided by seven points or less. Building on that, Game 1, Game 2, and Game 4 have needed a fifth period to decide a winner. Out of all the craziness, Dwyane Wade has managed to be the best player on the floor at all times.
Now, I’m not sure what it is, but both teams have been awful and quite painful to watch offensively. Miami is currently averaging a tick under 95 points per game in the series on 45.5% shooting but something is making Dwyane Wade very nervous, and he wasn’t shy in his evaluation of the series.

It’s unclear if Flash was talking about himself, or just in general, but it’s still a very unusual — yet hilarious — statement. If there’s anyone to blame for tight buttcheeks, Wade definitely has a part in it. He’s a big reason why Miami is even competing with this incredibly poorly-performing Raptor team as he’s averaging 27.3 points, 6.0 rebounds, 3.3 assists, and shooting almost 50% from the field.
As all great players do, Wade has stepped up countless times throughout this series and gives Miami a great chance at advancing to an Eastern Conference Finals matchup with the Cavaliers.
