76ers Vs. Heat Final Score: Dwyane Wade Leads Miami Over Philadelphia 97-91

Philadelphia put up a valiant effort but Dwyane Wade and the Miami Heat were not going to be denied. Wade finished with 26 points, 11 rebounds, and seven assists while helping close out the 76ers. His teammate, LeBron James just missed out on a triple double of his own with 16 points, 10 boards, and eight assists. 

The Heat built an eight point lead in the fourth before Philly came back to cut it to two. Andre Iguodala made big basket after big basket down the stretch, but the 76ers never could come up with that key stop and basket to tie the game. Iguodala and Elton Brand finished with 22 points each. Thaddeus Young came off the bench to score 13. 

Miami's three-point shooting was the big difference in this one as they went 12-30 from deep. Mario Chalmers came off the bench to score 20 points including six threes by himself. 

Philadelphia enjoyed a great season under new coach Doug Collins who early in the series said that his team wasn't as good as Miami. Collins had to be pleased with the effort he got from his team in Games 4 & 5.
