This is going to be an epic battle between two of the most dynamic scorers in the league.

Dwyane Wade has proven to be a top 6 or 7 player in this league. This year he has been remarkably healthy missing only 13 games. A handful of those missed games has been from the mini-vacations he received later in the season for rest purposes.

Wade is healthy and will be as dynamic as ever heading into the playoffs. Flash posted stats that are mind boggling because his all around numbers are still very high. 21.2 PPG, 5.0 RBG, 5.1 APG. However the most telling stat that shows Wade’s renaissance year is his 52.1% field goal percentage, easily the highest of his career.

Dwyane Wade as gotten it done for the Heat and as returned to form as being an MVP candidate.

Monta Ellis is the lesser known of the two, but by no means does that make him inferior to Wade. Ellis is the primary scorer for the Bucks. He averages 19.6 PPG and dishes out six assists per game. Ellis is a presence offensively and there is no doubt about that.

However the problem with Ellis is that his defense isn’t up to bar with the other great shooting guards alla Dwyane Wade.

Advantage: Heat
