WIN: 106-73
Game 7 is all about trusting your instincts as a player. For years, Goran Dragic has made a living by attacking the basket and finishing tough plays inside. Well, the point guard did just that on Sunday afternoon.

In fact, Dragic scored 17 points in the first half and took Kemba Walker off the dribble early and often. While he had a number of great conversions in the half-court, the Slovenian’s best finish, of course, came in transition.

To start the sequence with 5:01 left in the second quarter, Hassan Whiteside swatted Al Jefferson’s shot attempt inside. From there, Dragic grabbed the loose ball, went with a behind-the-back dribble against Courtney Lee and drove towards the right block. That’s when things got fun, as the point guard hit Lee with a spin move before finishing the reverse layup.

In the second half, Dragic continued his offensive onslaught thanks to some nice screens from Whiteside and Joe Johnson. Oh, and let’s not forget about a jam he had in the third quarter as the HEAT were rolling.

In addition to his 25 points on 11-of-17 shooting, Dragic also tallied six rebounds and four assists.

When the pressure is at its highest, there’s one guy you want with the ball in his hands. That man, of course, goes by the name of Dwyane Wade.

With Charlotte threatening to take the lead in the fourth quarter, Wade responded and hit some extremely difficult shots to force a Game 7 in Miami. In fact, the vet scored 10 points in the fourth on 4-of-7 shooting, including 2-of-2 from beyond the arc. On the flip side of the ball, the shooting guard also tallied two blocks in the period, with one of those coming on Kemba Walker with 14.8 seconds to play.

Earlier in the contest, Wade mixed things up offensively with pull-up jumpers and aggressive takes to the rack. A big reason why he was able to get free was due to some solid screens from Hassan Whiteside.

In addition to his 23 points on 10-of-20 shooting, the 34-year-old also had six boards and four assists.

Dwyane Wade was simply fantastic in Game 5. In fact, the vet led the charge in the second quarter as he got Miami back in the game by pushing the pace a bit more. While Wade converted a number of nifty drives to the basket both in transition and in the half court, there was one sequence in particular that was really special.

With 3:03 left in the first half, Wade received the ball from Luol Deng after Hassan Whiteside forced a miss from Al Jefferson. From there, the guard quickly brought it down court and drove between three defenders before throwing it down over Marvin Williams.

Of course, the 34-year-old’s greatest contribution came in crunch time. Wade scored six points in the fourth quarter and did all he could to try and get the win.

For example, he made a fantastic play in defensive transition to alter a shot from Courtney Lee at the rim with 1:04 to play.

In addition to his 25 points on 11-of-19 shooting overall, Wade also grabbed five rebounds and dished out a team-high four assists.

After falling behind by 18 points with 9:27 to play in the third quarter, the HEAT responded in a big way. Thanks to improved defense and better execution on the offensive end, Miami went on a 17-1 run to cut Charlotte’s lead to 58-56. Dwyane Wade continued to wheel and deal and dished out four of his game-high ten assists in the third. Joe Johnson, meanwhile, hit a tough contested 3-pointer and scored five points in the period.

While the Hornets closed out the quarter well, the HEAT gained some momentum thanks to their run. In fact, Wade and Johnson continued to convert in the fourth quarter, but Charlotte made more plays in the end to come away victorious.

Luol Deng kicked off the game with a corner three and carried that over throughout the first quarter. In fact, Deng hit his first five 3-pointers to help the HEAT stay neck-and-neck with the Hornets early on. The vet’s constant movement off the ball made it difficult for Frank Kaminsky to keep up with him in the first period.

On the defensive end, Deng did well on Kemba Walker in the third quarter and helped limit the guard to 1-of-9 shooting during that span. However, Kaminsky started to get going in the third and Charlotte gained momentum.

Deng finished the contest 6-of-12 for his 19 points to go along with eight rebounds and two assists.

Dwyane Wade simply did it all against Charlotte. Whether it was drives off the pick-and-roll, mid-range jumpers or attacks in transition, the vet was feeling it in Game 2. Hassan Whiteside did a nice job of freeing him up with some hard screens, but Wade’s most impressive drive on the night didn’t require one.

With 3:31 to go in the first quarter, the shooting guard brought the ball down court after securing the defensive rebound. Once he approached the right wing, he showed excellent burst on a drive right past Jeremy Lin, absorbed contact from behind and finished the play. Wade also sank the ensuing free throw to put the HEAT up 24-17 early.

As the Hornets inched closer in the fourth quarter, Wade attacked Courtney Lee inside and drew fouls to make sure Miami wouldn’t relinquish its lead.

In addition to his 28 points, nine of which came in the final period, the 34-year-old also tallied a team-high eight assists.

WIN: 123-91
Being a veteran, Luol Deng understands that momentum is very important in a playoff series and that every possession matters. With that in mind, it should come as no surprise that Deng was locked-in from the start against the Hornets and connected on his first six shots on Sunday night. While his contribution in the first half was superb, the 31-year-old simply remained hot throughout the contest.

In fact, Deng narrowly missed a playoff career-high in points. He ended up so close to reaching that mark since most of his damage came from beyond the arc off good ball movement from the HEAT. Speaking of which, Miami tallied 27 assists on the night and shot 57.6 percent as a result.

Otherwise, Deng continued to fight on the offensive glass and remained strong on the defensive end. In addition to his 31 points, the former Blue Devil also had seven boards (three offensive) and shot 4-of-6 from long-range.

With Miami down nine entering the fourth quarter, both Josh Richardson and Hassan Whiteside answered the call with a nice offensive surge to narrow the gap. Richardson continued to remain hot from the three-point line, while Whiteside did his usual damage inside. Both guys combined for 20 points in the final period and did all they could to try and will the HEAT to victory. Richardson finished the game with 18 points and four rebounds on 7-of-9 shooting, including 3-of-4 from distance. Whiteside, meanwhile, scored 17 points and grabbed seven boards on 6-of-10 shooting.

Additionally, Luol Deng tallied a game-high 22 points to go along with nine rebounds and three assists.

As been the case all season, both Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh got the job done in crunch time. With Miami down a point with 26 seconds left, Bosh aggressively drove inside against Marvin Williams, absorbed contact and finished the play. He also hit the ensuing free throw to give the HEAT a lead they wouldn’t relinquish.

A big reason why they stayed ahead was due to a fantastic steal by Wade with less than 10 seconds to play. To start the sequence, he swiped an errant pass that was intended for Kemba Walker and then passed it to Luol Deng from the deck for the slam. Wade finished the game with 22 points and five assists on 11-of-20 shooting. Bosh, meanwhile, tallied 20 points and six boards.

Additionally, Hassan Whiteside notched a triple-double with 10 points, 10 rebounds and 10 blocks.

After a slow first half, Miami started the third quarter very well, connecting on seven of its first eight shots. In particular, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh started to get going early in the quarter. Unfortunately, Charlotte went on a run shortly thereafter that was tough to comeback from. Still, it was good to see the HEAT come out guns blazing to try and cut into the deficit.

Later in the fourth, Tyler Johnson continued to fight and claw despite the team being down by double-digits. The combo guard relentlessly attacked the basket and drew a number of fouls on the Hornets. His grit and will to compete down the stretch was quite impressive. Johnson shot 6-of-12 for his 20 points and went 7-of-8 from the charity stripe.

Four players scored in double-figures for Miami, led by Chris Bosh’s 21. Great ball movement for a majority of the game had a lot to do with that. The team tallied 23 assists on 36 made field goals and as a result went 12-of-20 from downtown.

A perfect example of that ball movement leading to great shots came at the end of the game when Luol Deng knocked down a 3-pointer to put Miami up 100-92 with 38.8 seconds left. On that possession, two guys touched the ball before Goran Dragic found Deng with the extra pass. Deng knocked down all three of his treys in the game, with none as vital as that one.

Justise Winslow, meanwhile, displayed great court vision against Charlotte and finished the game with five points, seven boards and two assists.

Chris Bosh led the way for the HEAT with 14 points and seven boards. He was his usual self from mid-range and also converted some tough finishes inside. On one play midway through the third quarter, Bosh hit a tough turnaround jumper from the left block. Offensively, he was just dialed in from the start. Wade, meanwhile, ended the game with 12 points and five boards.

Gerald Green provided a spark off the bench on both ends of the floor and tallied 12 points, five rebounds and two steals.

Goran Dragić led the way for the HEAT with 28 points and five assists. While Dragić helped Miami manufacture some easy points in transition early on, it was the fourth quarter where he really shined. Dragić mixed it up with some extremely tough finishes in traffic and clutch mid-range jumpers. On one play in particular down the stretch, Dragić ran a great give-and-go play with Udonis Haslem to answer a run by the Hornets. With Hassan Whiteside in foul trouble and Chris Andersen battling through injury, Udonis Haslem came up big for Miami. Haslem ran the floor pretty well and had some nice finishes at the rim finishing with eight points, eight boards and three assists. Luol Deng started the game well to get Miami off on the right foot. Deng primarily attacked from the perimeter and knocked down a big jumper that put the HEAT up six with 38 seconds remaining.

Dwyane Wade scored Miami’s first points on Wednesday night and never looked back. Wade started off the game with a few jumpers, but worked his way into the post as the game wore on. As usual, he showed excellent foot work and finished a variety of tough shots in the paint. He really made an impact at the start of the fourth quarter, as he made some aggressive plays to get the HEAT back in the game. In all, Wade scored 17 points, grabbed seven boards and dished out four assists. James Ennis provided a spark for Miami and played with a lot of energy against the Hornets. Ennis often fought hard for loose balls and was very active on the defensive end. He also drove aggressively to the hoop throughout the game and kept the pressure on Charlotte’s defense. Thanks to his solid play, Ennis played the entire fourth quarter and finished the game with eight points, seven boards, one steal and one block. Hassan Whiteside (ankle) and Luol Deng (illness) didn’t make the trip to Charlotte and were held out for the game.

He opened a lot of things up for Deng early on and continued that throughout the game. He scored 12 of his 20 points in the fourth quarter and dished out 10 assists in all. Shawne Williams in particular played some great defense inside and went straight up a few times on Cody Zeller to alter his shot. Williams had six rebounds and two blocked shots on the night to go along with his five points. Chris Andersen exited the game early with an ankle injury.

Chris Bosh watched his first 3-pointer bounce once, twice, three times, four times before finally dropping into the net. His next try, from almost the same spot, swished. And the third one essentially saved the Miami HEAT. A threesome of 3-pointers - he had never made that many in an NBA quarter, say nothing of his 79-second span Sunday night - highlighted a run where Bosh scored 13 straight Miami points, and the HEAT beat the Charlotte Bobcats to extend their winning streak to 10 games. The HEAT led for the final 1:20, the time remaining when Bosh's third 3 put Miami up 93-91.
