Dwyane Wade passes Michael Jordan for most postseason blocks by a guard in history

Published Add your comment

Dwyane Wade had a big night for the Miami Heat as they levelled their playoff series with the Charlotte Hornets at 3-3 at the Time Warner Cable Arena. 

After losing three consecutive games, the Heat needed somebody to step up and produce a huge performance as the threat of elimination loomed large. 

The man to do that was, of course, none other than Mr Miami himself. The shooting guard scored 23 points - including his first three since December - pulled down six boards, produced four assists and blocked three shots.

His influence in the fourth quarter was huge as he nailed a three, hit an incredibly difficult jumper and then blocked a Kemba Walker shot to preserve the Heat's slender advantage.

Those three rejections in North Carolina took Wade past the greatest player to ever occupy his position, or the whole NBA for that matter, Michael Jordan, in playoff blocks.

While he moved past MJ in the all-time list, he also asserted himself as the guard with the most postseasons blocks in history. 

Miami Heat v Charlotte Hornets - Game Six

He is currently on 162, two ahead of Jordan and in 29th on the all-time list. His former teammate and good friend LeBron James is only two ahead. 


Game seven of Miami's series with the Hornets takes place at the American Airlines Arena at 6pm tomorrow evening. 

Having fought their way back into the series, courtesy of some big plays from D-Wade, the Heat are now the favourites to advance and take one step closer to a matchup with the Cleveland Cavaliers and LeBron.
