NBA Playoffs: Heat's Dwyane Wade passes Larry Bird for 10th on postseason scoring list
Wade moved into the top-10 during the second quarter of Game 2 vs. the Sixers
Wade was phenomenal in the first half, pouring in 21 points on 8 of 9 shooting from the field to help the Heat take a 14-point lead into the break. But Wade looking like his old self is not the only reason this was notable. No, Wade also made history in the first half.
Late in the second quarter, he got Amir Johnson switched onto him, and proceeded to take advantage of the mismatch. Stepping back to create space, he drained one of his patented fadeaway jumpers. The bucket moved him into 10th place on the NBA's all-time postseason scoring list.
And the man he passed? None other than Larry Bird. Congrats to Wade on the accomplishment. It's always impressive any time you're passing Bird on some sort of scoring list.
