5. The play doesn’t seem as big a deal now that everyone knows the ending of Game 4, but Mario Chalmers’ dime to Dwyane Wade was enormous in the game’s final six minutes. Once down 18, the game went tied and you just knew everyone was about to pin this one on the refs in Boston. Because Wade handles the ball so much, it’s easy to forget that Chalmers can be so dangerous with his vision, and not just when he’s attacking (as he’s had to do more of since Chris Bosh was injured).
4. Paul Pierce put what looked to be a foot down on Miami’s throat in Game 4 on Sunday with this hoop. The off-balance three off just his right foot came after drawing the foul on Dwyane Wade and put the C’s up 18 in the second quarter. What makes this so remarkable is how as Pierce gets older, he nonetheless finds ways to score with moves than only a veteran with everything to lose (last season with the Big Three?) would try.
