The NBA Finals has been as entertaining as advertised between two teams with great talent playing at the highest level. It appears that today's media always has to have a scapegoat when a team loses. When Miami lost Game 1, it was Dwayne Wade. Many pointed out that he was underperforming.
When the Thunder came up short in Game 2, Russell Westbrook was widely criticized for playing selfishly and not feeding the ball to his team's best player, Kevin Durant. Criticism is sometimes warranted; however, what many analysts fail to mention is that these players are only playing like they always have. Maybe the other team was just better that night.
D-Wade averaged 22 point, 4 assists, and 5 rebound, during the regular season. In the Heat's loss he had 19 points 8 assists and 4 rebounds. In their win he had 24pts, 5 assists, and 6 rebounds. These numbers are fairly consistent. Wade is a streaky player at this point in his career.
