Dwyane Wade is The Show with the Heat and will certainly be the man the Celts must slow down if they hope to win the series.
"I think it's more than Dwyane Wade," said the Celts' Rajon Rondo. "(Michael) Beasley, (Mario) Chalmers, Jermaine O'Neal. I think he has a good supporting cast but the bulk of it is stopping Dwyane Wade."
