This game looks like it is going to play out quite a bit differently than Game 1, as both teams' players are looking a little more assertive on offense, and both teams have already made some tough shots. Unlike Game 1, DeShawn Stevenson is guarding Dwyane Wade, and their battle has been entertaining so far. Stevenson is playing fantastic defense and has a basket of his own, but Wade has muscled in a couple of contested shots.
Of course, Stevenson didn't guard Wade to start Game 1, something that Mike Breen, who called the game, does not remember. While the announcers were discussing Stevenson's merits and his status as an underrated player, Breen pointed out that he shut down Wade in the first quarter of Game 1. Except Shawn Marion was guarding Wade during that time period. In a game which, once again, Breen sat courtside for. Oops.
