Heat have the winning combination
With LeBron James and Dwyane Wade, the Heat have enough firepower to take on all challenges.
J.A. Adande and Israel Gutierrez are teaming up this season for a look at the NBA from two perspectives, called West Side/East Side. Today’s edition looks at the Christmas Day showdown between the Thunder and Heat.
Dwyane Wade watched the Oklahoma City Thunder play this season and sees the same thing the rest of us do.
Russell Westbrook’s unique athleticism still makes him shake his head.
“When he comes off the pick-and-roll, when he gets to a certain spot, it’s amazing how he goes from here to the rim in, like, point-two seconds,” Wade said, snapping his fingers to emphasize the quickness.
And what of Kevin Durant?
“He’s growing up,” Wade said. “He’s taking his game to another level.”
That should be frightening, then.
Durant’s a changed man – this year’s LeBron James, essentially, determined to improve his game and make up for a previous year’s failure.
Westbrook is still freakishly explosive, and his assists and steals and 3-point percentage are at career-highs.
