Dwyane Wade: Eastern Conference Player of the Week

New, comments

Wade earns another honor.

Mark D. Smith-USA TODAY Sports

Turns out Heat Nation wasn't the only one that saw Dwyane Wade turn back the clock this week. The NBA noticed as well.

Wade was named Eastern Conference Player of the Week this past week, winning it for the 17th time in his 12-year career. Wade led Miami to a 3-1 record while averaging 24.5 points, 4 assists, 2.3 rebounds and 2.25 steals while also shooting 53.2% from the field. During these four games, he had two 30 point games and led the team in scoring 3 of the 4 times. The man also plays well when it matters, averaging seven points in the fourth quarter, second in the league.

His first 30 point game was when he had 32 points and five steals, helping the Miami Heat to a 106-92 win over the Cleveland Cavaliers. He then scored the final eight points as part of another 32 point night, including the last shot with 13.6 seconds left to beat Portland 108-104. He then helped Miami to only it's second three game winning streak of the year against Denver, scoring 22 points in a 108-91 victory.

The addition of Goran Dragic certainly has helped, but Dwyane Wade is the reason why Miami went from being a 9th seed about a week ago, to a few games away from being the 6th seed now. Congrats Dwyane!
