No. 3- June 2. 2011 | NBA Finals Game 2 | Dallas Mavericks @ Miami Heat
The 2011 finals were supposed to be the start of a dynasty that the Big Three promised at their welcoming parade. This was going to be the start of not 1, not 2, not 3…. well you know how the famous speech goes. Unfortunately, the Dallas Mavericks had different plans. They beat the Heat in six games and ended their chances of celebrating with the Larry O’ Brien trophy. Even though Miami didn’t come away with the championship, Wade had one of his most impressive finals performances of his career. He exploded with 36 points and shot 13 for 20 from the field. He had six assists, five rebounds and only turned the ball over once. Lebron James and Chris Bosh combined to shoot 12 for 31 from the field that game and the Heat lost by two points. Miami would ultimately fall to the Mavericks in six games, leaving a bad taste in the mouth of Heat fans to this day.
