Dwayne Wade grabbed the mantle, the podium, the attention, the Q ratings, you name it and kicked open the door for the NBA MVP race with a witness worthy performance last night in Miami. Flash scored 48 points with 12 assists while making 15-of-21 shots (71.4 percent) against the Chicago Bulls. He made a last-second steal and a running, last second 3-pointer to lift Miami to a 130-127 double OT win.
He has a league-leading 10 games of at least 40 points. Wade was insane last night. Before the double-OT game winner, he nailed a buzzer-beating 31-foot three pointer right before halftime to give Miami a two-point lead. He hit a 26-foot three pointer to send the game into overtime.
