Miami won Game 3 because in the last five minutes of the fourth quarter, they defended, took care of the ball and they have Dwyane Wade. The Heat have a player in Wade who is almost indefensible. He can iso up top, run efficient pick-and-rolls to create penetration and he can pull up, elevate and get his shot on anyone. Wade scored 15 of his 30 points in Game 3 in the last 4:22. The Heat have a weapon in Wade that New Jersey may not have an answer for and it ultimately may be the difference in this series.
