Vegas Odds had the Miami Heat as five-point favorites into tonight’s contest. If that is the case, then through three quarters a big bet on either team would seem harrowing.

Probably the biggest story line I have taken away from the game so far is Dwyane Wade’s scoring finally coming alive in this playoffs. Here are his numbers through three quarters from earlier in the playoffs versus tonight.

Dwyane Wade

Rest of the Playoffs: 11 points vs. Game 1 of Finals: 17 points

The scoring in the third quarter went down by more than three baskets per team. In the playoffs, and the Finals in particular defense becomes quite important and the game gets tighter.

Here is an important stat courtesy of the NBA stats Twitter page about Danny Green’s solid three-point shooting night.

One assist away, it seems all but inevitable James will score a Finals triple double.
