With Dwyane Wade finally debuting his Jordan Fly Wade sig in Game 2 in Miami against the Sixers, naturally he’d break out an “Away” edition for Game 3, right? Yep. He did. Wade laced up a Black/Red look last night, scorching Philly with 32 points, 10 rebounds, 8 assists, 1 steal and 2 blocks. The Heat won, 100-94, grabbing a suffocating 3-0 series lead. Teammate LeBron James conducted his own unveiling, stepping out in his Black/White/Red Nike LeBron 8 PS for 24 points, 15 boards, 6 assists and 1 steal. Based on the Home/Away pattern, chances are we see Wade and James in these same shoes for Game 4.
Chicago took its show on the road for Game 3 in Indianapolis. It was a tight game from start to finish but the Bulls eked out the victory, 88-84. Derrick Rose led with 23 in his road edition adidas adiZero Crazy Light, while Joakim Noah notched a double-double of 11 and 10 in his Black/White Le Coq Sportif Pro Model 2.0. Luol Deng completed the triple threat with 21, 6 and 6 in his road Nike Air Max Fly By.
In Portland, the Blazers were able to hold off the experienced Mavs, 97-92, to get back into that series. LaMarcus Aldridge (20 points) held down the post in his Nike Air Max Hyperdunk 2010, and Wesley Matthews (25) and Brandon Roy (16) held down the backcourt in the Nike Zoom Brave IV and Nike Zoom Hyperfuse, respectively. Dirk Nowitzki (25, 9) in the Nike Hyperdunk 2010 and Jason Terry (29) in the Reebok Zig Slash kept the Mavs in it to win it. But they didn’t win it.
