Heat’s Big Three score 85 points, their new playoff best

LeBron James scored 33 points in Game 4 of the NBA Finals, his most since Game 2 against the Pacers in the Eastern Conference Finals.

Dwyane had 32 points in Game 4, his most since March 4.

Chris Bosh added 20 points in Game 4, his most since Game 3 against the Bulls in the second round.

It’s been a while since the Heat’s Big Three played so well, let alone at the same time. Their combined total – 85 points – was their most ever in playoff game.

The previous high was 83 points scored against the Celtics in Game 4 of the 2011 Eastern Conference semifinals. Only nine regular-season games bested the 85 they scored last night.

The Big Three also combined for 10 steals – second among the 235 games LeBron, Wade and Bosh have played together and next to only a January game against the Lakers that featured 11 steals.

In addition, the Big Three’s 30 rebounds ranked 16th for them, and their five blocks ranked 21st.

Arguably, the Big Three – which combined for 85 points, 30 rebounds, 9 assists, 10 steals, 5 blocks – has never been better together than they were in Game 4’s 109-93 win.
