Boris Diaw isn’t the most athletic or exciting player in the NBA. Yet he’s been the most effective playmaker on the court and leads both teams in plus/minus through the first three games. This is also why Gregg Popovich moved him to the starting lineup for Game 3 and again in Game 4 on Thursday.
In the second quarter, Diaw swooned every basketball fan watching with a gorgeous dish in the post. Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh swarmed Diaw at the elbow, but the French native spotted Tiago Splitter open under the basket and dropped a gorgeous behind-the-back pass to Splitter for the easy dunk.
